We believe in building relationships that last a lifetime...

"Where your family becomes our family!"

We are Gaylord’s premier Funeral Home & Cremation Service covering all your funeral needs with dignity and compassion. 

H. Charles Nelson opened Nelson Funeral Home in 1965 with the help of his wife, a Gaylord native, Patricia (Wattson). The tight knit relationships of our community motivate our staff to serve with the same passion and commitment to helping others as it did 50 years ago. 

The Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Service, now in its 51st year, is still owned and operated by Mr. and Mrs. Nelson. A true family funeral home, the staff is unique in that some employees are related.  “Our staff prides itself on the philosophy, Nelson Funeral Home, where your family becomes our family”, says Jan Lake.  In addition to Chuck and Pat, the staff includes daughter Elizabeth Nelson Tobias, John and Jan Lake and a few employees who have worked for the firm for over 30 years and have become family. Together they all believe in quality service, compassion, and individualized care for each family they are honored to serve. 

“We consider it a distinct privilege to care for the loved one’s of our community members, and we will continue to provide dignified services to all who call upon us in their time of need” says Nelson.

 Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at (989) 732-1770, Quality Service, Compassionate Staff, Better Value.
