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.
