Why Choose Us


 Stark Memorial Funeral Home and Cremation Services is family owned and operated and a Selected Independent Funeral Home, which is by invite only.

We serve every family as though they are members of our own family.  Our  arrangements and services revolve around providing the best quality care at a fair price and we are always looking for new ways to serve you better.

 Our beautiful funeral home offers the comfort and convenience needed to help families cope with the loss of their loved one.  Our off street parking lots offer plenty of parking and we offer personnel to valet park your car. Our covered portico and handicap parking spaces near the door offer convenience during any type of weather. Every member of our full time staff is a caring, experienced professional, well-versed in the traditions of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds, fulfilling our commitment to helping all families before, during, and after the funeral in whatever way is needed.  

Since we understand that each family we serve has special needs, we have made a wide selections of services before, during and after the funeral available to suit any budget. We want to make the service as individual as the individual, which is why we offer families a chance to personalize the arrangements. Our intention is to help make every service personal, meaningful and truly reflective of the life that has been lived. For example, your service may be personalized by the reading of a favorite poem; memory tables set up to honor the life of your loved one; special personal items brought in; special music played; favorite clothing or hobby items displayed.  There is no limit to the personalization that may be done.

We believe in giving back to the community that means so much to us.  We are all involved in local charities, organizations, and special community projects, such as Elks-Lodge #305, Salem Rotary, Winona Ruritan, Masonic Temple-Salem, Salem Community Food Pantry, Salem Senior Citizens, and so many others.

A sampling of our offerings is listed below. Please call us at 1-330-332-5139 so we can help you through this process.

Online Memorials

We can create a customized, online memorial for you to share with family and friends. The memorial includes the obituary and any photographs you wish to provide. It will serve as a place for visitors to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, and light candles in honor of your loved one.

Tribute Videos

We can produce a personal tribute video that can be played at the service and online. Simply provide us with the photographs you want to include and we will transform them into a video celebration of your treasured memories. DVDs or digital files of the video are also available.

Funeral Fund Donations

We realize the expense of a funeral can be a burden. We provide the option for friends and family to make monetary donations to help cover funeral costs. These gifts can be made easily and securely online through our website, and are paid directly to the funeral home on behalf of the donor.

Ordering Flowers

We make it easy for friends and family to send flowers to your home or service to honor your loved one. We have partnered with local florists to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page of our website. You can also use this feature to select the flowers you would like at the service. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home.

Sharing Service Details

We reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the service for your loved one. We post the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your Facebook or Twitter page or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it.

Daily Grief Support Emails

We offer one year of free daily grief support emails to the families we serve. It is important to us that we continue to comfort our families through the difficult days that the first year of grieving can bring.
