Family Owned for Over 80 Years

Strom Funeral Home is a family owned business of three generations serving McCormick County for over eighty years.

Established as a combination furniture store and funeral service, Strom Funeral Home originally provided ambulance service for the medical needs of McCormick County citizens as well as providing funeral services at the time of a death.

Founded by James Samson Strom in the early 1930's it still carries the original name of Strom Funeral Home.  At the time of his death the business was purchased by his employee, James Keown who added a partner, Charles Pennell who continued until each of their deaths and then began operating by James Keown's twin sons until the early 1970's when Jack Keown became sole owner.  The funeral home continues to be served by Jack Keown and his son, Chad Keown.

Today, the funeral home provides funeral service to families at the time of need as well as families who wish to preplan for the future at today's cost.
