Our facilities were built as single family homes in the mid to late 1800"s. Our chapels, located in Tecumseh and Clinton, have been in business since the 1940"s. The history of our facilities is provided below along with a virtual tour of the current funeral homes. Ellsworth and Viva (Gretal) Collins became owners of the house in 1942.

They lived in the house and operated their funeral home and ambulance service business from the house as well. On July 28, 1964, Lester and Lucille Proctor bought the funeral home and ambulance business from the Corkery"s. The Proctor"s were residents of Clinton and had owned the funeral home there since 1950. The Proctor"s completely remodeled the building by removing some walls and a corner fireplace from one of the parlors.

The ambulance services to the community were an important and demanding part of the business. In 1968, the state requirements increased greatly and the services were then being provided by other agencies. Lestor"s son Roger joined the family business in 1975, until 1983 when the Proctor"s sold the business to Gary L. Couture and Lester Proctor's nephew, Leonard K. Stark.

At the time, Gary had been an employee for nearly twenty years before acquiring ownership. Mr. Stark sold his share of the business to Edward and Mary Ochalek in 1988. The Ochalek"s were also part owners of the Ochalek-Stark Funeral Service, located in Milan, MI.
