Kennedy & Sons Funeral Directors, P.C.
Serving All Faiths 

Life is full of opportunities to show someone we love them. One such opportunity is the funeral or memorial service. Such a loving event celebrates the choices they made, the relationship you shared, and honors the memory of your loved one.


No two funerals are the same. Each family we serve has unique and important needs that we strive to satisfy. By working closely with your family we can arrange a funeral ceremony that will express the special, one-of-a-kind relationship that you shared with your loved one and help enrich the memories that you will cherish forever.

As you know, there are 18 churches in Pana, each an expression of a deep spiritual connection. It is our goal to serve families throughout the area, from all faiths. We believe that you will only find this type of dedication from a local, family-owned funeral home. We’re pleased and proud to continue our century-year old tradition of compassionate service, from our family, to yours.

Our Mission

      To lovingly and carefully guide you through one of life's most difficult experiences, the death of a

We hope that our site will be able to answer any questions you might have. Should you have concerns, comments or questions left unanswered, please call us at (217) 562-3959.

Everything we do in our business, everything we are in our personal lives, focuses on holding this place and the people who live here in deep honor and respect.

Not just for them, but for you; it affirms the relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love – for the both of you.

    It's often seen as easier not to have a memorial service or funeral, and it's certainly seen as a less expensive alternative. But we're here to say this: an easy, cheaper path is not always better one. Grief experts all agree: a ceremony is an important part of the healing process.
