To Our Friends and Neighbors:

Since Bissler & Sons was founded in 1913, there has been one thought and one direction… To serve the needs of this community in an honest, dignified, and economical manner, with dedicated personnel. Bissler & Sons will continue to perpetuate the ideals upon which this business was founded.

The General Price List was prepared to help you and your family select the type of funeral cememony you desire. We will be glad to discuss all aspects of this list with you and help you choose only those options that you feel necessary in planning the funeral ceremony of your choice.

The prices on this list are for goods and services that we provide. Complete lists of caskets, vaults, and urns are available at the funeral home. Our prices are based on thorough analysis of our operating costs and continually monitored to assure you the highest standards of quality at a reasonable price. We invite you to compare our pricing structure with other funeral homes. However, in that comparison, one must be careful to evaluate like goods and services as well as the total price. Some funeral homes will underprice their service charges and overprice their merchandise. The merchandise itself must be considered on the same level (the gauge or thickness of metal caskets, the workmanship and quality of hardwood caskets, the reinforced strength of burial vaults, etc.)

We feel confident that you will find Bissler & Sons offers the highest commitment of both quality and service.

Sincerely,

Charles M. Billow
President & Funeral Director

Richard T. Bissler
President Emeritus & Funeral Director
