The Lohman family opened Lohman Funeral Home DeLand with the purchase of Constantino Funeral Home May 25. An Open House and Ribbon-Cutting was held June 13. With the opening of their funeral home, Lohman now operates the only family-owned combination funeral home and cemetery in the DeLand community.
The Lohmans also own DeLand Memorial Gardens, a Lohman Cemetery. “With both the funeral home and our cemetery, we can now offer families in the DeLand area one single continuum of care. They can go to a single place and work with one staff for all their funeral, cremation and burial services,” said Lowell Lohman.
The Lohman family also offers their own crematory for the families they serve. “Our crematory is beautiful, clean and dignified; just as we would want if it were our family,” said Nancy Lohman.
Representatives from the DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting to celebrate the funeral home’s new ownership. Sally Updike, director of membership development and marketing for the chamber, Robert Delgado, board member and vice president branch manager at Regions Bank, and Danny Gainin, retired board member, represented the chamber. The Open House included music by Sims Kline, refreshments, and a complimentary gift to the guests who attended.
During the Open House, the Lohman staff presented Lowell, Nancy, Victor and Ty with a plaque and photograph that read, “The Lohman Family has not only just purchased a new funeral home, they have significantly earned it. Lohman Funeral Home DeLand is working in conjunction with DeLand Memorial Gardens to be DeLand’s one and only funeral home and cemetery combination. The Lohman Family along with all their staff are dedicated, devoted and diligently compassionate with every family they serve.”
The Lohman family is the largest private, family-owned operators of funeral homes and cemeteries in Florida, with 13 locations. For more information, call Nancy Lohman at 386-451-2011.
