About Us

Joe Bowers, the current owner, began working for a funeral home in his hometown at the age of 14. He helped out by mowing lawns and setting headstones for the local monument business and eventually learning through years of experience more about the funeral business.

He attended Genesee Community College before attending Simmons Institute of Funeral Service and Graduating in 2000. At Simmons, Joe met his future wife, Karen, while she was also attending and graduated with a degree in 2000 as well. They have three children together, their eldest daughter Kaitlyn, their son Hayden, and their youngest daughter Kendall.

In her years prior to becoming a funeral director, Karen also worked as a licensed cosmetologist since 1995 which has assisted her in her funeral directing career. Later on, Karen decided to go to nursing school and has been a Registered Nurse with NYS, since 2011.

Joe and Karen Bowers have dedicated many years of their lives to funeral service. We are sincerely grateful for the opportunity to come and serve the community of Dryden. So far we have met many wonderful people who have helped us settle into the community. We are here to help serve your family with our dedicated staff, Gary Tyrell and Dennis Totman, who have worked in the community for many years.
