Our History

Our firm was founded over 30 years ago, in 1977, by William E. Strausser. Almost twenty years after the doors opened, Mr. Strausser sold the firm to the current owner and Funeral Director, W. Bruce McMichael, Jr.

Located in Benton, a beautiful part of Northern Columbia County, the facility was completely redecorated and refurbished after the transition in ownership. It is conveniently located on Route 487 with ample off-street parking.

The funeral home is tastefully decorated, with all the charm of 18th Century Williamsburg, and is completely handicapped accessible.

Mr. McMichael also expanded the parking lot, for the convenience of our client families and their guests.

Winter brings with it a McMichael tradition, the Memorial Dove Tree.

It is our goal to help families in our area to manage the many deep emotions which naturally arise during the holiday season. Our Memorial Christmas Tree is just one way we do this; we also provide them with holiday materials to help them get through this often challenging time. Year-round grief support and follow-up services are an essential part of our commitment to members of our community.

We are very active in Benton and the surrounding communities, and proud to support many of the activities and functions of our resident organizations.

               Thank you so much for honoring my Dad. You are a class act and the work you've done 

                                     has helped begin the healing. ~ Major Thomas E. Yeager
