Welcome to the Waters Funeral Home, Inc. website. We have been family owned and operated and serving the people in the surrounding area of Vandalia, Missouri for more than 110 years. We pride ourselves in providing our families with the very best in service and facilities. No matter what type of service your family prefers, we can meet your needs on every level.

Although our staff is involved with death on a daily basis, we never forget that completing all the necessary arrangements for any type of funeral service is a serious task that most people are only directly responsible for a few times in their life. The funeral directors at Waters Funeral Home, Inc.are well versed in the funeral traditions of various faiths, ethnic backgrounds and the military.

Our goal is to make each and every family we serve feel that their loved one’s service is more than a single day in a lifetime . . . . .it’s a lifetime in a single day.

This website has been created with you in mind. Every day we get phone calls from people who need information on a variety of topics. It may be difficult to find time to make the call or stop by.

On this site you will find information regarding our staff; merchandise and prices; the benefits of preplanning; online tributes and obituaries; survivor information dealing with social security and veterans benefits; a community directory and directions to find us.
