"The Utmost Compassion And Understanding"

Thank you for visiting the Sheets & Childs Funeral Home website. Please use our website for your convenience. We hope that it serves you as yet another instrument in which we can show our love and care for those we serve.

Since the days of F. M. Sonday’s horse-drawn hearse and even before, Sheets & Childs Funeral Home and its predecessors have been faithfully serving the residents of Whitley, Noble, and Allen Counties. Having our easy to find facility located on U. S. 33 in downtown Churubusco gives us the unique opportunity to bring small town care to our friends in neighboring communities such as Huntertown, LaOtto, Avilla, Arcola, Merriam, Wolf Lake, Albion, and Kimmell.

Also, ask any of our staff about our exclusive simple discounted funeral packages, as well as traditional services, our various cremation options, and our complete line of monuments and memorials. In addition, our pre-need funeral planning program is not only cost effective, but helps you make things easier for those you love at life’s most difficult time. It is a gift that you can give your family when they need your guidance the most.

We’re different today than we were years ago, as we continue to adapt to the ever-changing needs and desires of those we serve. But one thing about us will always be the same: Our commitment to serving your family fairly, competently, and compassionately. Honoring that commitment has helped us build an enviable reputation and a trusting relationship with families throughout northeast Indiana that we value highly. and never, never take for granted.

Thank you,

Greg Childs, Owner & Funeral Director 

Jeanine Childs, Attendant

Talk of a Lifetime

What the families we serve say...

Greg and Staff – We want to thank you so much for all you did for our family during such a difficult time. You helped us in such a professional manner. Mom and Dad always talked so highly of you, and we’re really happy they made the decision to use your facility. Many people commented how life-like Dad looked. He even had his usual “grin” on his face. Job well done by all!
