- About Us
Thank you for visiting the Sheets & Childs Funeral Home website. Please use our website for your convenience. We hope that it serves you as yet another instrument in which we can show our love and care for those we serve.
Since the days of F. M. Sonday’s horse-drawn hearse and even before, Sheets & Childs Funeral Home and its predecessors have been faithfully serving the residents of Whitley, Noble, and Allen Counties. Having our easy to find facility located on U. S. 33 in downtown Churubusco gives us the unique opportunity to bring small town care to our friends in neighboring communities such as Huntertown, LaOtto, Avilla, Arcola, Merriam, Wolf Lake, Albion, and Kimmell.
Also, ask any of our staff about our exclusive simple discounted funeral packages, as well as traditional services, our various cremation options, and our complete line of monuments and memorials. In addition, our pre-need funeral planning program is not only cost effective, but helps you make things easier for those you love at life’s most difficult time. It is a gift that you can give your family when they need your guidance the most.
We’re different today than we were years ago, as we continue to adapt to the ever-changing needs and desires of those we serve. But one thing about us will always be the same: Our commitment to serving your family fairly, competently, and compassionately. Honoring that commitment has helped us build an enviable reputation and a trusting relationship with families throughout northeast Indiana that we value highly and never, never take for granted.
When I lost my uncle who wanted to have his services in Churubusco I was apprehensive to say the least. I had a few experiences with a large funeral home operation in Ft. Wayne and although I was never really happy with the way my family was treated I thought that was just the standard. When we met with Miles all of that apprehension melted away with his genuine respect, concern, and care for myself, my uncle, and my family. I expected high pressure sales for casket and flowers and additional unnecessary services that I had experienced before. Not once did I feel like we were being taken advantage of or under any pressure. Six months later I lost my Dad and there was no question as to where I was going to have his services. Once again, the same kindness, respect, and genuine compassion was received along with efforts over and above what one would expect from a funeral home. Without a doubt, my husband & I will be pre-planning our services here.
