About Heritage Rowe

Our mission at Heritage Rowe is to service the needs of all families as though they were our own family. Our desire is to give you peace of mind because, we feel that a family should not have added stress to them during the most difficult time of their lives. We will help you through every phase of the funeral arrangement process.

Our funeral home is not just about business, but about LOYALTY to our families. We strive to continue to be there for you after your loved one has gone to their final place of rest by providing individual and group Grief Counseling sessions to help you when the separation process may seem unbearable.

It does not matter what the services may be if we can provide it, we are here for you. We conduct our business with Love, Care, Kindness, Understanding, and most of all Family Loyalty.
