Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home has its roots in the 19th century work of Charles P. Heinrichs, a pioneer Jefferson City undertaker, embalmer, and furniture dealer, with whom was later associated Sylvester "Bus" Dulle. Mr. Dulle and his wife, Esther, acquired the Heinrichs' funeral assets and in 1942 founded the Dulle Funeral Home, which operated for many decades from the historic Tweedie Mansion at 601 East High Street.
In 1965, their son, Ralph F. Dulle, joined the firm, and, together with his wife, Roseleen, eventually assumed ownership. In 1984, a new funeral home was built at the North Ten Mile Drive location on a four-acre wooded lot. With retirement approaching and wishing to keep the funeral home locally owned, the Dulles transferred ownership and management to Kent W. Trimble and his wife, Christine, on July 1, 1995.
People are increasingly purchasing their funerals ahead of time because of the obvious advantage of paying for them at today's prices. But the benefits go much further. Knowing things will be taken care of according to their specific wishes relieves people of worry and anxiety as they get older. It also avoids financial burdens from falling on their children or grandchildren. We are licensed by the state of Missouri to handle such prearrangement funding. We place the funds either in a Funeral Trust established through the Missouri Funeral Director's Association, or in an insurance policy specially designed for funeral planning purposes by the Funeral Directors Life Insurance Company.
Unlike other area funeral homes, we freeze the prices of ALL items selected, including sales tax, grave openings, and other cash advances. Whatever you pay for today is guaranteed to be provided at the time of your death with not one penny of additional cost to your estate. Moreover, should you move outside of our normal service area, your plan is completely portable to another funeral home of your choice.
