Our Heritage

Kalmer Memorial Services was established in  2009  to meet the growing demand for cremation services and other alternatives to the traditional funeral.  Your choice for final disposition is extremely personal.  We believe your choice is the right choice.  We also believe that if you have life insurance, you shouldn't have to spend it all on a funeral.

We are owned and operated by Joseph G. Kalmer, a licensed funeral director and embalmer with over 25 years experience.   Through the years,  Joe has witnessed many changes in attitudes toward funeral service.  With a very proactive approach, he has decided to adapt to those changes by providing a service for those who do not wish to, or simply cannot over-spend on a funeral. With less overhead expenses than the traditional funeral home, these services are provided for much less. Some examples of how we keep our expenses down:  we do not own expensive hearses and limousines.  If we need a hearse or a limo, we will rent one;  our gathering room  comfortably seat 50 - 60 people.  If we need more space, we will use a church, a cemetery chapel, or perhaps a banquet center for a memorial service;  you will not see a room full of caskets.  If you need to purchase a casket, you may do so from a book or catalog and you will find our caskets to be the most reasonably priced in the metro area.

Our business is conveniently located east of O’Fallon, Illinois on US Rt. 50, just two minutes from Interstate 64 and Highway 158.  The facility is completely remodeled with updated décor and handicap accessibility.  We also own our crematory,  located on site so your loved one never leaves our care.  You will find it to be an inviting and comfortable environment with a friendly, caring staff. 

We understand the intimidation some feel when preparing for a funeral.   Our goal is to provide dignified, professional services with absolutely no pressure of buying services or merchandise you don’t want or need.  We’ll simply be there to guide you through difficult days.
