In September 1961, Don & Margaret Freeman founded Freeman Mortuary with the life- long commitment to not only the families we serve but the community in which we live.
Since 1961, many things have changed. Our building is larger, our parking area has been expanded, and our chapel has been renovated several times. We have also seen changing expectations of what our family’s value in a service. We are now able to create a more personalized experience through the use of technology, displaying of personal items, and unique ways to share a loved ones legacy. One thing that has not changed in 55 years is our mission to treat every family “as if they were our own loved one.”
Whether you are preplanning or just lost a loved one, you should feel comfortable that your funeral director is working in your best interests, and truly cares about you and your family.
Freeman Mortuary has been family owned for over 45 years, and has earned the highest award possible... the trust of the community.
When you deal with our funeral home you can be assured that your wishes will be carried out just as you request, and that great attention will be paid to every detail, no matter how small. After all, we only have one chance to conduct a service properly.
We feel it is important to give back to a community that has put so much trust in our family. Whether serving as President of the Jefferson City Chamber of Commerce, President of the Jefferson City Area United Way, or a member of the Jefferson City Board of Education, we are committed to our community. We have also had the privilege of chairing fund drives to construct the Rape and Abuse Crisis Shelter, the final phase of the Miller Performing Arts Center, and many improvements at our local high schools. We are thankful to live and work in such a compassionate and generous community.
As we look to the next 55 years, and with the third generation of our family a part of the business, these values will still remain the driving force of our family.
