Peace of Mind and Personal Choices
Some might ask, "Why, do I need to pre-arrange a funeral?" Very few people want to think about death or much less their funeral, and yet nearly all of us have strong convictions about how we may want to be remembered in a memorial service. Additionally, it is not convenient stopping by a Funeral Home to make such arrangements. So, this service has been provided to enable anyone to quickly make individual and family arrangements through our secure web site. Click here for more reasons why Pre-Arrangements make sense.

The history of the Eaton Funeral Home dates back to 1898 when J.T. Williams began the undertaking business in Sullivan. He operated the undertaking business in several locations before moving it to his home at 347 North Clark.
There have been three major remodeling programs since 1948. The first in 1949 when the original building was remodeled to accommodate a new chapel, embalming facilities and selection room.
In 1962, an attractive addition was constructed on the north side of the building. In 1992, major renovations were done to the interior with enhanced decor and the addition of new state-of-the-art embalming facilities and handicap accessibility.
Harrison M. Eaton passed away in December 1989. Today, his son, Jim, and his wife, Mary Ann, own and operate the funeral home.
For nearly 60 years, the Eaton family has tended the needs of bereaved families in a caring and professional manner.
The business is in its 110th year of operation. During this span of time, ownership of the funeral home has been with just two families, the Williams and the Eatons, and the Eaton Funeral Home today is an integral part of the community's history.
