|We wish to announce that Stephens Memorial Chapel has purchased the assets and business entity of Key Funeral Home.
Gloria and I want to be the first to congratulate Clara Key of Key Funeral Homes, Pryor and Locust Grove, on her well deserved retirement. Clara and her daughter Clarissa (Key) Yates have worked hard and served our community well, after the untimely death of their husband and father Tim Key.
Effective October 15, 2014 in an effort to better serve, keep costs down and cut overhead expenses, the Key locations will be closed. All business will be merged into our location at 1525 N.E. 1st Street next to the Pryor City Cemetery.
With the approval of the Oklahoma Funeral Board, we will be changing the name of our business to Stephens-Key Funeral and Cremation Care.
Clarissa will be coming on board with our family and staff. Clarissa has been a main stay in the operation of the Key Funeral Homes for many years. We welcome her to our existing staff and look forward to merging our resources to better serve you and your family. In addition, Clara will still be available on a limited basis.
We also want each and every family that has a pre-arranged or pre-funded funeral to know that they do not need to do anything to keep them in force. Pre-funded funerals are governed by the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner’s Office and all necessary and legal documentation is in the process of being done, to assure that your funds are safe, in our care, and accounted for.
