To compassionately serve and guide families with our experience and knowledge as they honor their loved ones.
Part of what we do is help you tell the unique stories of your loved ones’ lives.
We do this through facilitating services and gatherings.
Another important aspect of services and gatherings is to provide opportunities for you to feel the love and support of family and friends.
Your path to healing begins here.
We are honored to work with you.

"The experience to serve you better, the compassion to understand your needs".
People sometimes ask me how I can do the work I do, companioning people through grief, hearing stories of loved ones’ lives and creating and officiating at services to honor them, etc.
My question is how can I not do it?
What a gift to sit and hear the treasured stories of different lives, to hear the love felt and to talk with people who are in a place where they know what really matters.
If you need to help your grieving heart heal, please contact me.
I too am honored to work with you.
Jackie Hook, MA
Spiritual Director and Celebrant
“We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity; more than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.”
~ Charlie Chaplin
Grief. It comes in waves.

Grief is like the ocean; it comes in waves, ebbing & flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim. ~Vicki Harrison

Welcome to our website!
We are happy to welcome you to the Koch Funeral Home website. We hope you find it user friendly and informative.
We have learned that meaningful funeral experiences are an important first step on your grieving journey. Other steps include taking the grief you feel on the inside and expressing it on the outside, or mourning in ways that are significant to you. To help encourage you and others on these journeys, Koch Funeral Home partnered with Jackie Hook and created Helping Grieving Hearts Heal program. This program helps and supports individuals as they grieve.
