"We are more than a funeral home, we are now truly a community steward and are able to give back to the city. We felt the need to offer additional event services. This facility will enable us to provide services and events like no other in the surrounding communities. We envision having continuous programs for families, including movie nights, children's activities, and socials. We envision the center as a place for all people from all walks of life to enjoy the facility for whatever purpose they intend."
The Maxton-Rosado Funeral Home will offer affordable services and cater to all funeral needs including prearranging of services, cremations, celebrations of life, and full traditional funeral ceremonies. The Rosado’s wanted to reopen the funeral home as they felt a strong need in the community for an affordable but high-quality funeral home. “I think we really encompass the families that we work with and engage with them on a more compassionate level. We realize our clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds and circumstances. We strive to serve families equally, regardless of what their financial situation is. That's something that my mentors, Larry and Diane Hughes, always prided themselves on — what they have instilled in me. To be able to help any family that comes through our door."
It is a great honor to have the opportunity to carry on where Mr. Maxton left off. He was a staple in the community of Du Quoin, and his legacy deserves to be remembered. Frank was named Rotarian of the year in 2000, Du Quoin's Citizen of the year in 2005, and upon his retirement, was awarded Du Quoin's highest honor by former Mayor John Rednour when he declared Oct. 27, 2012, as Frank Maxton Appreciation Day. Francis McCara “Frank” Maxton passed away on September 21, 2014 at the age of 80.
