Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our doors we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Why Us?

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Learn the legacy.

Moster Mortuary was founded in 1884 in Laurel, IN. by Louis Moster.  Will Moster, one of Louis's sons, joined the business and expanded it into Rushville, IN. in 1931.

All of Will’s sons, Robert, William and Richard became licensed funeral directors and embalmers and ran the family business. William's son, Thomas joined the business in 1965 and Richard's daughter, Ann joined the business in 1988.

Ann bought the family's funeral home in June of 2007 and now owns and runs the family Business.
