Our Story

The Appalachian Mountains are the oldest in the world, providing this area with a climate, culture, and beauty that cannot be found anywhere else. It is here that Appalachian Funeral Services are located, taking advantage of a beautiful area surrounded by majestic mountains watching over us. The staff of Appalachian Funeral Services appreciate both these mountains and their people. These are strong people with close ties to the land and their creator.

At the end of life’s journey, we should all look back and celebrate the memories which determine who we are. The staff of Appalachian Funeral Services are dedicated to treating each person entrusted to us, with respect and dignity. We offer a wide variety of funeral options, each designed to meet the needs of the individual, realizing that each person we serve is beautiful and unique.

Appalachian Funeral Services is committed to serving Jackson County and the surrounding areas with fast, efficient, and courteous service. Our facility is totally new and state of the art, yet we recognize and encourage the local traditions and values. We hope to provide funeral service which will allow our families to recognize and rejoice in lives well spent. While in our funeral home, we hope each person feels comfortable and "at home". We hope to have adequate representation from local artists and craftsmen, celebrating our rich and varied mountain culture.
