Welcome to the Schaeffer Funeral Home online. We are a full service, independent; locally family owned and operated funeral home situated in Petersburg, West Virginia. We believe that personal and professional service is the foundation in providing the best funeral service to the families we serve. The Schaeffer family has served the tri-county area of Grant, Hardy, and Pendleton counties of West Virginia over fifty years. J. Blaine Schaeffer began the family mortuary business in 1950 with his wife, the late Edna Kathern (Hanlin) Schaeffer. Their second daughter, Renee S. Schaeffer, has been the general manager since 1990. The Schaeffer's are committed to the families they serve in providing a meaningful funeral service; one that is appropriate for each family no matter what choices are made and one that is affordable. We are proud of our business history and desire to maintain our excellence in personalized and professional funeral services. Three generations of the Schaeffer family have continued the 24-hour services of the mortuary. Blaine Schaeffer graduated in 1948 from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science after serving in World War II. Renee Schaeffer graduated in 1970 from the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science (PIMS). Marian (Schaeffer) Kitzmiller is another daughter of Blaine and Kathern. She worked with her father and sister, Renee, from 1962 until a fatal car accident in 2006. Marian's son, Steve Kitzmiller, graduated in 1992 from PIMS and has worked in the family business since that time. Aaron Hott graduated from PIMS and has been with the family business since 2006. Our philosophy of serving you well is reflected in the detailed personal attention that each and every family we are privileged to serve receives.
