Honoring Tradition. Celebrating Life. Since 1832.


Grose Funeral Home has been serving Myerstown area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

In the Beginning

Established in 1832, the Bahney Funeral Home began at the location of 9 North College Street, Myerstown. In 1971, the funeral home became known as Kercher Funeral Home under the ownership of Robert F. Kercher.

A Turning Point

Mr. Kercher (left) retired in 1986 and the business was purchased by Kathy M. Grose. Ms. Grose’s career in funeral service began in 1976 after graduating from the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science. After serving her internship in Lebanon, she became the first woman to receive a funeral director’s license in Lebanon County.

A New Location

Ms. Grose continued operating the funeral home at the North College Street address until 2003 when a new, larger establishment was built at its current location of 358 West Washington Avenue, Myerstown.

Present Day

On June 30, 2014, Kathy Grose (left) retired and the business was purchased by longtime employee, Justin K. Huie.

In July of 2018, Joseph P. D’Amato was named Supervisor.
