After her father’s death in 2015, Sierra Sue Hill became a third generation funeral director and has continued the Hill tradition with her mother, Kathy. Sierra is a 2008 graduate of Zane Trace High School, 2012 graduate of Capital University, and received a master’s degree (MSW) from The Ohio State University in 2014. In addition to being a licensed funeral director, Sierra is a licensed social worker with a strong mental health and therapeutic background, which has allowed her to better serve families in this time of loss and transition.
Our current location was built by Loring in 1954 and underwent a complete ten year renovation by his son, Dale which featured stained glass windows, antique metal ceilings, homemade Vinton County red oak woodwork and oval backed oak seating. Dale processed the wood himself from timber from his own property in Vinton County from rough cut lumber to the timeless hardwood seen in the funeral home today. Renovations have continued including updating of our complimentary kitchen area, the addition of an easily accessible bathroom, and the recent addition of a family reception area, which is available for after service gatherings.
Our current facility during its original construction in the 1950's. Our previous two-story facility was just a block away.
