Lila Neal

Director/Owner

I grew up on a small farm in Ripley County, IN between Delaware & Lookout. My parents are George and Jo Coyle who live in Osgood. I attended Napoleon Grade School and graduated from Jac-Cen-Del. I married Bill Neal, Jr. and we attended Purdue University and both graduated in 1973. I graduated from the school of Nursing Technology becoming a registered nurse. My last nursing job was Ripley County Health Nurse. After graduating from Purdue, we moved back to our farm in Osgood and raised our three children. During this time in 1986 I attended Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science. I served one year as an apprentice at the funeral home and took over on December 31, 1987. Today, our three children are all married and we have five grandchildren. Over the years I have belonged to different organizations and have helped with the many charitable causes that they supported. I belong to the Osgood UN Methodist Church, am a member and have served as president four years of the Osgood Area Kiwanis along with leading them in their various fundraisers. My family and my funeral home families are my major priorities. After now serving over twenty two years in the funeral business, I have dealt with many families and still continue to today. Yes, I make my living from this business, but I truly do care and want to help make it easier for my families thru this most difficult time in their lives. When we serve a family, I feel almost like I become their mother thru this journey and want to protect them and make this experience as easy as possible. Better pricing, good service and the excellent appearance of your loved one, are reasons families contact our funeral home.

Travis Neal

Funeral Director/ Licensed Embalmer

I have been a life long resident of the Osgood Community graduating from Jac-Cen-Del in 1992, then attending Purdue University and studying Animal Agri-Business.  I returned to Osgood and married Toya Wetzler in the summer of 1996, and have 2 children currently attending  JCD.  In the fall of 2010, as life was moving along, a decision was made to have a lifestyle change.  In the spring of 2011, I enrolled in Mid America Mortuary College, and began a new career path.  I graduated in the fall of 2012, and served my internship and received my State Licensing.  I have always believed in order to be successful you must be involved in your community.  I currently serve on the Jac-Cen-Del School Board, Osgood Lions Club, Indiana Funeral Director Association, and involved in 4H, and other school activities. 

I currently am employed with Matthews Aurora Funeral Solutions and work as a Funeral Sales Consultant.  This gives me the opportunity to work with various funeral homes throughout Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio.

This business is difficult, in the fact that I laugh with many of you as my friend, and then also grieve with you in times of sorrow.  This business is much more than earning a living, it reaches deep in you, to be a better person today, than you were yesterday.  I'm proud to call Osgood my home.
