Holy Rosswurm

Holy Rosswurm

Advance Planning

When my husband (who was a veteran) died, we were fortunate to have pre-arrangements with Veterans Funeral Care/Northern Indiana Funeral Care. They gave my husband a service with the respect and honor all our veterans deserve. Every family deserves the same. I can also personally attest to the unparalleled  quality of their work.

I enjoy working alongside families to help them realize and understand the options available to them when pre-planning a funeral or memorial service.

I am a lifelong Northeast Indiana native and have 3 sons.
