With a convenient location in Mentor, Ohio a comfortable atmosphere and customized service, our event venue is becoming increasingly more popular. And, why not? This new way to host an event can fit just about any style or budget. The Reception Center can hold up to 125 people for buffet style, hand passed or plated meals. Our on site food and liquor license provides the flexibility to host a variety of events for the community (not just post-cremation services or funeral services). 

Celebrations of Life can be tailored to fit the personality of your loved one. Choose from any lifestyle theme such as golf, boating, fishing, gardening, cooking, spiritual, etc. Personalize your loved one's celebration based on their hobbies, outdoor interests, seasonal holidays and more. 

Our Mentor Reception Center is located on the 2nd floor of the funeral home and has a separate entrance located on the South end of the building. 

Just see what some of our recent guests had to say:

 "When I go to a funeral home, I usually stop for maybe a half hour. This time was different. I was at the funeral home for almost 2 hours. I was comfortable there, I was able to spend time, visit and relax in the surroundings. The reception room made all the difference.'

" The bowling team gathered at the funeral home to pay their respects. They then went in to the reception center and were able to toast her one last time, as she had pre-planned."

" We entered the visitation room and were greeted by the family, surrounded by the beautiful display of flowers, keepsakes, memorabilia and a gracious offering of an open buffet of finger sandwiches, cheese & crackers, fruit, desserts, wine, beer, coffee bar and soft drinks. What a tribute to her mother who loved to entertain."
