LIMA — Siferd Funeral Home is under new management and ownership.
Hanneman Family Funeral Homes, a family owned chain based in North Baltimore, Ohio, purchased Siferd on Aug. 1.
The sale included three other Ohio funeral homes in Fremont, Willard and Attica, all of which were previously owned by Service Corporation International.
Siferd has a new managing funeral director, Jamie Sizemore, who previously worked as an investigator for the Allen County Coroner’s office.
The funeral home, previously known as Siferd-Orians, is in the process of changing its name to Hanneman-Siferd Funeral Home.
“This is an opportunity to better serve the Lima community through the strong reputations of each business,” Kraig Hanneman said in a statement about the sale. “Being family owned and operated will serve as the foundation on which to continue to serve families with dignity and respect. We feel we are better able to personalize our services for the family’s unique needs by placing the needs of the families we serve first.”
Siferd’s past funeral director Pat Orians, who worked at Siferd for 33 years, has joined Chiles-Laman Funeral Home as its newest funeral director and mortician.
