Clara Landini

Our sister Clara has fallen asleep in Christ. Confident in our hope of eternal life, let us commend her to the loving mercy of our Father and let our prayers go with her. She was adopted as God’s daughter in baptism and was nourished at the table of the Lord; may she now inherit the promise of eternal life and take her place at the table of God’s children in heaven.

Thank you Jim Geils

To all the families that have supported my father, Jim, throughout his 45 years as a funeral director, I hope you will continue to let me serve you moving forward.

Filling my father’s shoes, will not be an easy task and something I will forever strive for; however, he has given me the knowledge, guidance, experience and lasting relationships within the funeral industry that will hopefully make this transition possible.

He was my confidant, superior but mostly my biggest fan. I know he will be with me always, leading and guiding me to be the best funeral director I can be.

I will continue my father’s legacy as best and for as long as I can, with your love, help and support.
