Cedar Rapids

In a time of loss and grief, it's nice to be home. Our Cedar Rapids location was built as a family home in 1908, and now serves the community as a place to come together and remember those who have passed since 1958. Garage and selection room additions were added at that time followed by a large chapel completed in 1985. The original woodwork including pocket doors and detailed staircase can still be found in well-maintained condition. Many families comment on how comfortable it feels because it reminds them of home, not a big institutional building.

A large chapel area comfortably seats 130 people for services and can be expanded to host large gatherings and visitations. There are flat screen televisions available for showcasing video tributes filled with your personal photos and the latest in sound equipment to play special music.

Family lounges are available to serve food and refreshments. You are welcome to bring in your own food or we can help with catering. All events at our facility include beverage service that includes, lemonade or iced tea, water, and use of a Keurig gourmet coffee machine.


Our Marion chapel began as St. Paul's Lutheran Church and was thoughtfully converted to a funeral home. The funeral home is quaint and attracts many families who want a more intimate environment and not a large institutional style building. The chapel comfortably seats over 100 people in beautiful carved wooden pews. Recently remodeled, there is plenty of room for family and friends to gather for sharing and remembering. There is a flat screen television for viewing video tributes and tables for displaying favorite memorabilia and photos.

A downstairs lounge accommodates larger families and provides space for food and refreshment, as well as a place for kids to gather. Families are encouraged to bring their own food or we can help with catering. All events at our facility include beverage service consisting of lemonade or iced tea, water, and coffee.

Mount Vernon

In 2015, Stewart Baxter acquired the Morgan Funeral Home in Mount Vernon. Denny & Mary Morgan retired after many years of service to the surrounding communities. The facility was built by the Morgan's in 1999, and can seat 150 people for a service or celebration. Seating may be set in rows for a formal service or in a more casual style for sharing and conversing. Many families also take advantage of the welcome space for serving food during events. An adjoining family lounge encourages family and friends to share food and provides space for kids activities.

The audio visual equipment has been updated to provide options for video tributes, special music, and recording services to share with those who can't make it to a service. The funeral directors at Stewart Baxter are experts at helping families remember and celebrate lives of loved ones.
