Now In the 6th Generation of our
Family Owned Business

At Shafer Memorials we are pleased to say that you can 'See What You Buy'.  We carry a large inventory so a client is able to stand next to the size and type of granite unit they are interested in. 
We find this helps to give proper perspective of what a client wishes to have better than just seeing a picture in a salespersons book.
The fact that we do our own engraving of the granite memorials is why we can provide this nice display for you to make your decisions from.

We do our own designing and engraving on site for a more personal touch to each order.
Our indoor display helps to make a more 
comfortable visit during inclimate weather.
Rick and Kim (Shafer) Swank,
along with their son Jeremy,

A memorial serves as a tribute of love, honor and respect.  Our professional and  experienced staff will help you create a memorial that will pay tribute for generations.

Many families in this community have entrusted us with their memorial needs, because of our quality craftmanship, honesty and value. 
 It would be an honor to serve you.

Now is the perfect time to stop
by our office for a consultation for a monument.

We offer no obligation consultations to help design a monument that works well to tell the story of your loved one or for yourself when planning ahead.
