About Stein & Sons
We are a caring and affordable cremation and burial service. Stein & Son, cremation and burial service is owned by Yvonne Whalen, a licensed Funeral Director, who has served in the funeral industry for over 27 years.
How we're different
Yvonne is the sole owner and operator. We are not corporately owned, part of a franchise, or part of a national chain.
We offer in-home arrangements, which means we come to YOU. It may sound strange, but when you lose a loved one, the last place you really want to go to is a funeral home and sit in a room making these decisions surrounded by caskets and merchandise that you either do not need or cannot afford. We can discuss all your options and sign the necessary forms in the comfort of your own home.
Since we are a small business, we work directly with other family owned and operated businesses in our industry. Our crematory, transfer service, and even our casket and urn vendor are all family owned. We truly believe that family owned businesses can offer the care and support you truly deserve.
My passion is working with families and my commitment is to service excellence.
