Our Story & Legacy

Our Story & Legacy

One of the oldest family owned funeral homes in the nation, Tufts Schildmeyer Family Funeral Homes and Cremation Centers continues to expand with the needs of the surrounding communities

The legacy of excellence started in 1840 in Maineville, Ohio by Seth G. Tufts, who did a bit of everything under the shingle of S. G. Tufts Undertaking and Carriage Shop and continues with locations in Loveland, Blanchester and Goshen Twp.

At the turn of the century, Oscar B. Tufts, Seth’s son, moved the undertaking business to Loveland working out of a livery stable. In 1920, Lawrence S. Tufts, Oscar’s Son, purchased the property on Riverside Drive, which is currently the main location of Tufts Schildmeyer Family Funeral Homes and Cremation Centers.

For many years, Lawrence Tufts, his nephew, John O. Tufts and his son-in-law Robert P. Schildmeyer operated the funeral home.

Today, we honor that tradition of excellence with knowledge and compassionate men and women who respect your right to choose without undue influence and who believe the most valuable thing we own is our reputation. Every staff associate is expected and empowered to do anything it takes to serve your family well. The Tufts Schildmeyer Family developed a mission statement "A Caring Tradition and Celebration of Life since 1840" that they live by with compassion, integrity, and exceptional attention to details.

Robert and Marilyn Schildmeyer, along with their sons, Lawrence T. and Terry S. Schildmeyer and grandson Lawrence Schildmeyer Jr. represents the fourth, fifth and sixth generations to continue their legacy of excellence.
