My name is John Dowling, and I am a funeral director and embalmer who has 38 years of experience caring for families when they are remembering the life of a loved one. Located just southwest of Southview High School, Dowling Funeral Home focuses on providing traditional services and quality merchandise at about 40% less cost to a family compared to the average of other area funeral homes. We have a beautiful newer facility with a chapel that can accommodate almost 300 visitors at any given time. The chapel can be divided to provide comfort for more intimate gatherings. We are excited about being able to offer exceptional value to families, especially during the current economic state. We are an independent, locally-owned business.

What Our Families Say... TESTIMONIALS

Above and Beyond

We want to thank you for the warm, caring service you extended to our family at a very difficult time in our lives. John, you went above and beyond in a kind, gentle manner offering suggestions and advise for Mike's funeral arrangements. Every detail was taken care of no matter how large or small. Dick and Joyce did a wonderful job of greeting visitors as they entered the mortuary both for the visitation and the service.
You and your whole staff from top to bottom were a tremendous help during this difficult time.
