1841 - 2016

From our humble beginnings 175 years ago, the Sharer Funeral Home has been a family owned & locally operated firm, guiding families in creating a meaningful ceremony to honor the life and memory of a loved one.  It has been our honor to serve the families of the Alliance area for so many years.  We are grateful to have earned the trust of the many generations who have called on us since 1841 during the most difficult times of their lives.  

As we look ahead, we pledge our continued support to the Alliance community, as well as maintaining the high standard of service for which we have been nationally recognized.

  • I have nothing but good things to say about the services provided. Everything was very professional and the entire staff was caring and compassionate. The appearance of my mother was absolutely beautiful. This is an enormous comfort to the family. I particularly appreciated the private time with my mother the day before the services, and the funeral home gave me all the time I needed. Everyone was helpful in planning the services to selecting an appropriate casket. Tremendous Service !
