Our Staff


The passing of a loved one is the worst event in many people's lives. Our passion is to help you navigate through this difficult time and to help ease your stress and anxiety and begin the grieving process to help you heal. At Wade Funeral Service, we know that the funeral is not for the deceased loved one but for those of us left behind. The viewing is a way for us all to see the finality of death so that the passing becomes real to us and not so much to say "goodbye", but rather "see you later". The funeral itself is how we honor the departed loved one with words, songs, customs, and other traditions. The staff here are dedicated to you and your loved ones to help this process flow smoothly so you may begin to grieve and thus begin to heal.
