Our History

Our History

Haisley Funeral & Cremation Service began its tradition of serving the families of the Treasure Coast over 40 years ago. Since that time, the concept of “our family serving your family in your time of need” has been reflected in the multitude of services we offer, in our comfortable surroundings, and in our professional, capable staff.

Haisley Funeral & Cremation Service is locally owned and operated, and is dedicated to serving the needs of all families, regardless of race, religion or financial status. Today the funeral home is under the direction of Richard F. Haisley, a licensed funeral director. His wife, Jimmie Anne Haisley, helps with advanced planning and family services.  They have raised and educated their children in the Treasure Coast area, and community involvement has been, and continues to be, a focus of their loyalty and continued service to the community where they live. Their daughters, Quinn Haisley-Wheeler, a licensed funeral director and Lee Anne Haisley run the day to day operations of the funeral home.

To maintain the high standards people have come to expect of them, they are continuously looking for better ways to serve the community. They are committed to caring and helping the families they serve. They offer each family they serve the ability to plan a funeral that will meet their specific needs, while keeping their traditional commitment to funeral service unchanged.

A few of those specialized services are:

• Green Burial

• Pet Loss Services

• Interactive website and webcasting

• Fully Equipped Reception Center

• Scattering at Sea
