Benjamin Funeral Home
It was a time when families read by oil lamps, Benjamin Harrison was President of the United States and horse-drawn carriages were the mode of transportation. It was also the time when our funeral home began serving families in Genesee County.
Since 1899, our home in Clio has been providing the finest in funeral services in the comfort of a warm and beautiful facility.
This century old firm has seen many changes and has continued to grow with our community. In 1995, the funeral home underwent a major addition and renovation. The historic "Stuber House" is now home to a modern, 13,000 square foot funeral home with the latest in comfort features and technical amenities.
Both former family owners, the Benjamin's and Whipple's, left behind a trusted legacy of compassionate, professional service. We are blessed to follow in their footsteps.
In 1987, the former Cole Funeral Home in Montrose became part of our funeral home family. The Cole family began serving the Montrose community in 1949 from a small home on Main Street. Later they purchased property and built a new home at our present location on Hickory Street. Charlene Cole and her late husband James dedicated their lives to the tender care our community. We are thankful for their contributions.
In 2000, the O'Guinn's purchased the Krauss-Torhan Funeral Home in Birch Run. This home has enjoyed an excellent reputation with some fine owners over the past 75 years. Elmer Klein, Don Krauss and Steve Torhan have all left their mark on this business and we are proud to carry on their tradition of excellence in funeral service.
