About Higgins Memorial Home
Our spacious, comfortable funeral home is a community landmark, where friends and family can gather in warm, home-like surroundings. Since the funeral home was founded in 1954, many renovations for expansion have taken place, including increasing the size of the parking lot for more convenient parking, enlarging the size of entrances, and making the restrooms handicapped accessible.
