Our Story

"Our Family Serving Your Family"

We take great pride in the reputation we have built over the years, that our funeral directors are known as the most trusted, knowledgeable and honest funeral service providers in our community.  Most likely the staff  at Simmons-Rentschler Mortuary is someone you know, someone who you see regularly around your hometown. That is because this is our hometown too.  When planning a funeral our funeral directors are dedicated to ensuring that each funeral reflects the unique life of the deceased and, at the same time, is meaningful and supportive for those left behind. We offer creative ideas and options to help tailor your arrangements to suit you and your family, and we take care of all the complex details.  We feel that every family we serve becomes a part of our family and we believe this does make a difference in the care that you receive.

We care about you, your family and every community in Smith County from Kensington to Lebanon and Gaylord to Smith Center. Our staff of professional funeral directors are highly experienced in compassionately caring for families during the most difficult time of their lives. Our goal is to assist your family in the selection of a fitting tribute to their loved one. We offer families the choice of traditional services, Graveside Services, Cremation and other memorial options that will meet your family’s needs. We have designed our web site to answer many of the funeral service questions that people typically have and hope that it can be of some assistance to you. Feel free to call or e-mail us anytime if you have questions or comments about our firm or any funeral related issue.  We don’t rely on all day office hours due to the large amount of time we dedicate to our community, but we are always available by phone 24/7and can set up an appointment.

Sincerely serving you and your community,

Adam Rentschler – Funeral Director/Embalmer
