Always a family-owned business, Oliver Funeral Home was established in January 2007 when John Oliver bought the Centralia and Sturgeon funeral homes from Bill and Mary Ann Meador.

From 2008 to 2012 the funeral homes went through periods of remodeling. From the new roofs, carpet, concrete, and sound systems, we were able to rededicate our Centralia location. Later we added a complete York Room to display our caskets, vaults and urns. Finally in October 2012 we were able to add a brand new parking area in Centralia, MO.

Our goal is to be a funeral home that will not only raise the bar in our industry, but will serve the needs of each and every family we serve.

Please feel free to browse our pages to learn more about pre-planning a funeral and about grief support, as well as the traditional funeral and cremation services that we offer. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us any time. Drop by the office as needed, or contact us via phone or e-mail. We are always here for you. 

Furthermore, we understand that it is not always possible to attend a service or a visitation in person. In light of this, we've created beautiful interactive online tributes to memorialize your love one. Leave a condolence, share a memory, post a photo, light a candle, and more!
