Spencer Chapel History


 Our funeral home is proud to be family-owned and operated.

 Ed West and son, Harold, came to Spencer, Indiana in 1919 from Cloverdale, Indiana and established a furniture store and funeral business on the south side of the Spencer square.

  In 1929, they moved to the present location at 105 North Montgomery Street. Ed West passed away in 1949 and Harold in 1962. Arthur Parrish joined the firm in 1938, and Steve Parrish in 1964. Steve Pedigo joined the staff in 1977, just before Arthur Parrish passed away that same year.  Patrick Day joined the staff in 2007, and was named manager December, 2014. On December 3, 2014, licensed funeral director Todd Walton, along with his wife, Cindy, purchased the funeral home, becoming an active part of the day to day business.

 Since our humble beginnings nearly 100 years ago, our funeral home has offered compassionate & professional service that leaves kind memories. Our service is conducted in a manner befitting the tribute that you and your family wish to bestow. We have evolved from a furniture store/funeral home to a place of care and refuge, where you can take the first steps of grief, and healing.
