Where to Begin

Simpson Funeral Home is the area's preferred provider of funeral services, including cremation and burial, in the Southwest Missouri area.


Steps to Take (When a Death Has Occurred)

In the event a death occurs in your family, you should notify the appropriate hospital, hospice or law enforcement personnel of your desire to select one of our funeral homes. They will then dispatch us  to begin our care for your loved one. 

If you need our services now:
Please call us immediately at (417) 673-2411, (24/7 Line)

 Once we have been notified of the passing of your loved one, our Care Team will promptly be dispatched to the place of death where your loved one will be treated with care, respect and dignity. A licensed Funeral Director or Chaplain will also contact you (referred to as the 'Next of Kin') to schedule a time to discuss your loved one's wishes. 


When a Death is Imminent

When your loved one is placed on hospice or comfort care, often times it is difficult to make final decisions regarding their cremation or burial arrangementss. Contact one of our licensed Funeral Directors to gently guide you and your family through the process. Funeral Directors can meet with you at a funeral home location, or wherever your loved one is located.


Modernizing the "Mortuary"

Our state of the art platform allows you to make arrangements, select service options, and even find life insurance money and other benefits you may be entitled to, all from your mobile device! See our video below that details what you can expect.




Pre-Need Services

Advance planning of you or a loved one's cremation or burial arrangements is an important decision. More of our time is being spent on advance planning. Families we work with consistently say that preneed arranagements saved their family considerable time and money.

In our experience, having an advanced funeral plan offers peace of mind to you, and your family. It encompasses many aspects regarding the way in which your loved ones and friends will honor you or your loved one's life.

Our preneed plans are guaranteed, which means that the cost of the funeral home's services and merchandise are frozen, your family won't pay out of pocket for funeral home charges upon the death of their loved one.

Our Preneed Counselors work with families to not only select a funeral plan, but also work to memorialize the life of you or a loved one ahead of time.


Aftercare Services

Aftercare is the follow-up care families receive from our funeral home. Unlike discount cremation centers, we provide personalized service from the very beginning. This extends to followups with your family to check on them, offer grief counseling resources, and become a trusted helping hand with matters that occur after a death, such as locating local resources for banking and legal needs.


Grief Counseling

We offer grief support and counseling at Simpson Funeral Home, under the direction of our Chaplain 2 times each month. Read more about our grief support groups here.
