For over 50 years, Metcalf Funeral Home has been
guided by the values instilled in us by our founder, Robert Metcalf. Bob began
his career as a funeral director with Roper & Sons before founding Metcalf
Funeral Home in 1961. Metcalf operated Metcalf Funeral Home as a privately-held
family business until its sale to Prime Successions, a national funeral home
chain in 1992. In early 2004, Metcalf Funeral Home returned to local ownership
when it became part of the Roper & Sons family, joining two of the oldest
names in the Lincoln funeral home community. At Metcalf Funeral Home, we
are here for you in service, and as friends and neighbors. Remembering
warms our hearts and helps us to feel better -even in the midst of a
heart-rending loss. It reminds us to celebrate the life lived, not the
heartbreak of a life lost.
Metcalf Funeral Home offers you a wide variety of
choices when it comes to making funeral arrangements. Whether you are planning
a traditional funeral, or a memorial tribute at a later time, our compassionate
staff is here to help you. Our mission is to answer your questions, assist you
in designing a personalized service that honors the memory of your loved one,
and oversee every detail along the way..
