Our History

Our History

The Palmer Family has been in the funeral business for over 120 years. Lewis Kremer, George Palmer's uncle, first opened a furniture and funeral establishment in the 1890s. Robert Palmer began working for Lewis Kremer in 1937. He eventually bought the business with Gene Beaman. The Beaman & Palmer partnership continued for several years before Robert bought Gene out in 1970. George Palmer graduated from mortuary school in Dallas, TX in 1974 and began working at the funeral home after. Jonathan Santin graduated from mortuary school at Kansas City Community College in 2012 and began working with Palmer Funeral Home. After 41 years of service, George and Judy Palmer sold the funeral home to Jonathan and Brittany Santin in May of 2015.
