Coleman Funeral Home opens in Olive Branch
High quality, value pricing now available for DeSoto County families
When you’re faced with the loss of a loved one, the financial burden of funeral expenses can drain your savings and deepen your grief. But isn’t the task of honoring your loved one worth any expense?
An Oxford-based funeral home opening a new location in Olive Branch this month is turning that age-old sales pitch on its head, offering the best prices in high-quality funeral care in DeSoto County.
If the claim sounds bold, consider this invitation to compare: Coleman Funeral Home posts everything from funeral-package breakdowns to casket prices right on its website.
“We are excited to bring a philosophy of high-quality service and value pricing in funeral care to the DeSoto County community,” said Glenn Coleman, co-owner and funeral director. “Our mission is to help each family honor their loved one with dignity, in exactly the style and budget that is right for them.”
After 10 years of serving the Oxford area, opening a second location in Olive Branch marks a significant step for the small, locally owned funeral home. The Goodman Road facility will allow the funeral home to begin serving DeSoto County families as it selects a site to build a permanent location.
Based at the Olive Branch location is Director of Family Services Clay Jackson, a licensed pre-need insurance agent with nearly two decades’ experience.
A resident of DeSoto County for more than 25 years, Jackson is a native of Sturgis and holds an accounting degree from Mississippi State University. His role with Coleman Funeral Home includes helping north Mississippi residents purchase their own funeral services in advance through Security National Life.
“The last thing anyone wants to do is leave their family in a position where, on top of their grief, they are saddled with a big funeral bill,” Jackson said. “It’s very satisfying to me to help families save money by locking in funeral prices in advance — and also helping take that future burden off of their loved ones.”
A ribbon cutting for Coleman Funeral Home’s Olive Branch location is set for Thursday, March 19, at 1 p.m. DeSoto County residents will also have an opportunity to tour the new funeral home and get to know the staff at an open house set for Sunday, April 12, from 2-4 p.m.
