Proud to be Family Owned and Operated

Goodwin Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc. began its commitment to the community in 1946 by providing dignified care to your families at times of personal loss. When that commitment started 70 years ago, it was established by Mr. A. K. Goodwin on principles of dignity, caring, and most importantly, trust. Those three traits were carried on through owners Chat and Martha Maxfield and presently John R., III and Margie Vinson. Dignity, caring, and trust are not just our business principles, they are our livelihood. Whether it is providing support for a local organization or assisting a family in a time of loss, our commitment stays the same as it has for over 70 years.

We are located on beautiful historic Main Street in Cadiz. Our home was built in the late 1870's and was converted into a funeral home in 1946. Our funeral home provides the same comforts that any family home would have. That is why we are proud of our facility as we feel it provides our families with a comforting "home-like" atmosphere.

At times of loss, your family has available to them a staff that has a combined total of over 160 years experience. With that experience and knowledge, we can provide the answers to those most difficult questions; because with death, there will come questions. We have heard those questions many times, and we bring to it answers that will be simple, informative, and filled with care and compassion.

Again, our dedication and commitment in service to your families began 70 years ago, and it continues today - from our family to yours.
