Our History

Ironside Funeral Home, Inc. was established in November of 1986.  Bruce M. Ironside purchased the facility from Edward McDaniels who had opened the funeral home in 1980.  Mr. Ironside had been the manager of the home since 1982.  Since the purchase in 1986, many renovations have been made with two major additions including a new front entrance along with a new garage area and casket selection room on premises.  In 1990, the funeral home became affiliated with TRUST 100 Network of Independent Funeral Homes that specializes in funeral pre-arrangement.

Michelle became a licensed funeral director in September 2008 after attending American Academy McAllister institute of Funeral Service in NYC as part of their first online program in funeral service. In December 2009 renovations were completed to provide a larger homelike atmosphere to the families we serve.


Our Business Outlook
