Rankin Funeral Home
Rankin Funeral Home is a full-service funeral home that has
been proudly serving the needs of the Marion County area since 1967.
Charles E. Rankin purchased the C. L. McMackin Funeral Home
from the McMackin family who were engaged in “Furniture & Undertaking” and had
been established in 1865. Original locations of the McMackin Funeral Home were
the McMackin Furniture Store building and “the old Rainey home.”
Rankin Funeral Home’s present facility, Tudor in design,
was built in 1941 by C. L. McMackin II. Mr. Rankin’s son, Edward S. Rankin, joined
his father in 1978 at its current location which continues to offer a
professional atmosphere suitable for the conducting of funeral services in a
comfortable, “home-like settling.” Myron S. Lloyd joined the
firm as an associate in 1974.
Our staff offers both traditional and
non-traditional funeral service options—each conducted in a dignified,
compassionate manner to families in Salem and the surrounding area—and always
committed to a “Heritage of Family Service.”
We continue that commitment of 150 years in this
community by meeting the needs of each family today, while Pre-planning for
their needs of tomorrow. Our courteous staff is here to help. Please contact
us with questions about your funeral needs or any of our professional services.
Our mission statement is to respond to each families needs,
carefully listen to their wishes and strive to implement their requests in a
professional and meaningful manner.
Rankin Funeral Home is a member of Illinois Funeral
Directors Association and National Funeral Directors Association.
