What We Do



 




History & Staff

Our Beginnings

Since 1912, four generations of the Pasco family have owned and operated Pasco Memorial Mortuary. Originally, the Pasco family operated the funeral home from a store-front location on West Main Street in downtown Greenfield. In the mid-twenties they relocated to a large home located at 312 E. Main Street. Historically the Pasco family business grew along with the city of Greenfield. Several generations of Pasco's have memorialized many friends and families of the James Whitcomb Riley birthplace here in central Indiana. Chancy Pasco was honored by being invited to assist with the funeral of this man who was Indiana's most published poet, a native of Greenfield and internationally famous celebrity. As the town continued to grow, so did the business outreach into Hancock county and surrounding counties. The building at 312 E. Main Street was enlarged in the 1940's with a new west chapel and in the 1980's with a north addition. With the addition of each new Pasco generation the business continually grew until Dave and Richard Pasco decided in December of 1999 to relocate the operation to a new state of the art one level facility on the near west side at 1780 W. Main St. in Greenfield.




A Home Filled with Warmth & Compassion

On September 1, 2001, Richard & David Pasco sold Pasco Memorial Mortuary to long time Hancock County resident David Stillinger. David with his extensive background in operating a family owned funeral home dedicated himself to continuing the tradition of excellence the Pasco family set forth in 1912.

Today, David and his staff strive to maintain a warm and caring, family oriented, home like atmosphere where families come together to honor the lives of those they love.

The addition of our grief therapy dogs Butler, Harper and Harley, the relaxing family gathering lounge and our many technical advancements create an environment that makes it easier to treasure the memories.

Butler Stillinger

Senior Grief Therapy Dog

Butler is an AKC Registered Golden Retriever that was born in September 9, 2008 in Findley. Ohio. He was adopted by the Stillinger Family just four months after his birth and relocated to Greenfield. Much of his training was completed at First Friend's K-9 Training in Fisher's and he later received private lessons by a professional trainer for Canine Companions for Independence (C.C.I.). While he is not qualified he does have the same socialization skills that C.C.I. dogs have. At four months old, Butler was slowly introduced to the families at Stillinger Family Funeral Home. Butler was named after the English family butler that worked and served the family within the home, the funeral staff rapidly learned that Butler was a natural at his job and properly named.

He is a warm, easy going and lovable extension of the funeral home staff that is gifted at disarming those that are emotionally tied down. At five months of age Butler was featured on the front page of the Daily Reporter for his unique position at the funeral home. He has visited Valle Vista Hospital with children as part of their therapy program and residents at local area extended care facilities. Butler is available to all our families during arrangement conferences, visitations and services. Many families ask for his presence at visitations and you will find him warmly welcoming guest in the foyer when asked.
