The Liley Funeral Homes has provided personal
Funeral and Cremation services to the residents of Bollinger County and
surrounding communities since 1950. They have two full-service locations: 410
Union Street in Marble Hill, Missouri and Highway 72 & 51 in Patton,
Missouri to better serve this community.
The funeral home is an important part of any community. In addition to providing
a variety of necessary services to the community such as burial services,
cremation services, memorial services and celebrations of life, funeral homes
also serve as resources for those grieving the loss of a loved one. When
it comes time to make the decision regarding the funeral home you will trust to
care for a loved one or to take care of your pre-planning arrangements, we
offer the above information about our company history and our valued staff to
assist you in your decision.
In June 2022, Ford & Sons purchased Liley
Funeral Homes to become Ford & Liley Funeral Home. “We’re honored for the
opportunity to serve the families of Bollinger and Cape Girardeau counties with
tradition, respect and compassion in their greatest time of need,” said company
president Kevin Ford. “These communities can expect to receive care that allows
the end of life to be approachable, dignified and a highly honored experience
for the individual and their loved ones.”
We are committed to serving our local communities, neighbors, and friends for
generations to come.
