Welcome to Kearns Funeral Service

Welcome to Kearns Funeral Service, Garden View Chapel, and LaPorte City Funeral Home; since 2013 part of a Locke Funeral Services family of funeral homes. It is our mission to fairly, honestly, and compassionately offer our expertise and guidance before, at the time of, and after your loss.

We believe we have a responsibility in helping people make the right decisions for themselves by providing information and explaining options which are available.  When a decision is reached our help is available to carry out your instructions.

Through COVID we have enhanced the cleaning and disinfection of our facilities.  We are utilizing our entire space to help provide for Social Distancing.  We make hand sanitizer available throughout our facility.  When attending a service, our staff will be wearing masks, and we ask that those who are attending follow the Waterloo Ordinance and wear a mask as well.  For your safety, and the safety of others, if you are not feeling well, please express your condolences and support in ways other than your physical attendance.

In 1945 C.P. Locke pledged that we would be “Where your wishes govern.”  That same pledge holds true today, as we offer a four-generation commitment to Integrity, Service, and Excellence.  We measure our success by your satisfaction in our help.
