Recent Obituaries

 In the early days of the funeral home, a person could pay for their burial insurance premiums with chickens, eggs, vegetables, and other things of value. While that is no longer the custom, our funeral home continues to believe in fair prices. Our long-standing tradition has been to provide the finest facilities and service at a reasonable price. We know the importance of helping each family plan the funeral they want, within their own budget. Having the very best does not have to cost the most.

Today, Irby-Mitchell Funeral Home is large enough to give our families the same services as the largest funeral homes around, yet we are small enough that each family receives the level of attention and care they want and deserve. We are proud that our staff has deep roots in Clay and Greene counties. They take pride to provide you with a reputation of trust and a promise of professional service presented in a caring manner. Our staff dedicates themselves to making each service a special time of remembrance to your loved one, honoring them and celebrating their life. We are continuing the proud legacy that started over 100 years ago. We urge the public to stop by anytime to meet our staff and ask any questions that you may have concerning your burial policies or other burial arrangements.
