COSHOCTON -- After months of planning and construction, the locally owned and operated, Miller Funeral Home is open for business on Main Street in Coshocton. The facility, which was formerly the Century National Bank, has undergone major renovations, including a 5,200-square-foot addition.

"We have worked hard to create exactly the building we needed," said owner Matt Miller. "And of course we were going to do this only once ... so we wanted to do it right."

Coshocton based SUTCO construction was the general contractor for the project using almost exclusively Coshocton County contractors to complete the project.

Some of the details that Miller believes people will appreciate include; a covered entrance to a spacious main lobby, special children's room, a private kitchen for families, an in-house video system that allows for recording of the service just to name a few. In addition, the facility also boasts two large showing rooms for visitations and funerals.

"We created the building with the details of a service in mind," said Miller.

The Miller Funeral Home will offer a compassionate and caring approach to their funeral services. In addition, Miller will also offer cremations, online memorials, pre-planning and after care as well.

"We will assist your family in planning a meaningful funeral and choosing the options that best suit your family's needs and your loved ones wishes," said Miller.

Miller is a 1993 graduate of Tri-Valley High School in Dresden, 1995 graduate from Ohio University in Zanesville and received his Bachelors in Mortuary Science in 1996 from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science. He has been a licensed funeral director and embalmer for 14 years including 5 years at another funeral home in Coshocton. Matt, his wife Valerie, and their three children Andrew, Madison and Grace have lived in Coshocton since 2004.
