Bereavement Library

Mollie and Dave Murphy Bereavement Library

Intended to help families long after the funeral and memorial services are over, the Mollie and Dave Murphy Memorial Library is available to every family we serve. Populated with a variety of books appropriate for adults and children, the catalog of titles available continues to grow. Books will be added as titles are requested or the funeral home staff comes across worthy additions. We encourage the community to suggest titles to include!

The library is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment. It is our deepest hope that this library will serve as a resource for healing and learning about grief and loss of a loved one.
