Raymond Funeral Home becomes Cranston Family Funeral Home

Jack RAYMOND of Raymond Funeral Home is retiring from the funeral profession and has sold his business to Jeremy and Jamie CRANSTON of Cranston Family Funeral Home in Eldon and Batavia.

Jeremy CRANSTON grew up on a family farm near Deep River and attended Iowa State University graduating with a degree in elementary education. He taught school for several years where he met his wife Jamie. After leaving education, he attended Des Moines Area Community College, where he received his degree in mortuary science. He served his internship with Holland-Coble Funeral Home before taking over the former Kremer Funeral Home in Eldon and Batavia. In August 2016, Jeremy and Jamie CRANSTON purchased the Kremer Funeral Home locations and began Cranston Family Funeral Home.

Jamie CRANSTON currently works for the Great Prairie Area Education Agency and helps with funeral home operations., as well. They have a 7-year-old daughter, Ireland, who will begin second grade this fall.

RAYMOND spent many years serving the families of Fairfield, Birmingham and the surrounding area, and it was important to him to find a family that would carry on that tradition.

"We are honored that Jack felt confident in letting us continue a tradition of quality, carrying (sic), funeral care," said Jeremy CRANSTON.

He added that all preneed funeral contracts that were held with Raymond Funeral Home will be honored as written.

He also added that people will start to notice some small changes in the coming months as the transition process moves forward.
