Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our doors we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a funeral home. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
McHenry Funeral Home has been providing funeral services to area residents for more than 60 years. This tradition began in 1945 at what was then known as Keeney Funeral Home, which operated in an old converted house on the corner of 5th and Jackson Streets in downtown Corvallis. In 1959 the existing building was constructed. Through several additions, the current facility boasts nearly 6,000 square feet of space dedicated to providing the highest-quality funeral services to area families.
