COSHOCTON – Amy Stockdale, director of the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce, was excited to welcome a brand new business to town.

The chamber hosted a ribbon cutting on Sept. 12 at Miller-Kaser Cremation Services, which is located on Cedar Street. The business was created by owners Matt Miller, Valerie Miller and Darcie Kaser from Miller Funeral Home. It is the first and only human and pet crematory in Coshocton County.

“A rising tide lifts all boats,” said Mayor Steve Mercer who spoke at the ceremony. “A property like this is an asset that lifts everybody and everything. This is an asset to the community and we appreciate this investment.”

Matt said a couple of years ago a local veterinarian asked if the funeral home would ever consider adding a pet crematory.

“Darcie and I looked at the idea and knew it was a big investment, but we felt the time was right,” Matt said.

Kaser is happy to have the opportunity to work with the Millers on this project.

“I appreciate Matt and Val letting me be part of this experience,” she said. “I’m excited to get started and to be a part of this.”

They have already starting receiving feedback from customers.

“In the last three weeks we’ve already seen the impact this has on pet families,” Matt said. “They appreciate having this here and not having to go out of town.”

Miller-Kaser Cremation Services is located at 845 Cedar St., and may be contacted at 740-295-9011.

“It’s been a long road, but we are proud to be here,” Matt said.
