Rosser Funeral Home

 

 

Rosser Funeral Home continues its “commitment to caring”, building a solid reputation in the community by providing thoughtful compassionate service.

Every service planned is focused on your loved one and helping your family in any way we can. We believe no funeral should place a family in financial hardship.  Our directors are committed to helping you select items that are within your means.

As a family owned and operated funeral home, we are not required to meet quotas and expectations that come from being part of a larger corporation.  Therefore, we do not take it upon ourselves to pressure the family with unwanted items or service.

Our main objective is to welcome you into a lovely facility made comfortable by a family atmosphere and to care for your loved one as if they were our own.

In short – our family is here when your family needs us.
