Our Rochester Obituaries
Metropolitan Funeral Chapels provides obituaries for all individuals we serve. Our Rochester obituaries act as quiet reminders of the finite nature of our lives. Yet, for those who have recently experienced the death of a family member or friend, an obit means so much more. Obituaries can be a starting point for the difficult grieving process and tell a valuable story of the life that was lost. In this way, obits are a valuable part of healing and remembrance for families who are experiencing the loss of someone dear to them. At Metropolitan Funeral Chapels, we believe that making these death notices available online does more for the Rochester community than leaving them to be strictly found in local publications. Hosting obits on our site allows Rochester families to share them on social media and even have them be accessible for a long time after the death has occurred. In addition, we find that there is more participation in funeral services when obits are posted to our website.
We have recognized the importance of obituaries. They are key to properly honoring the deceased. Therefore, with the Book of Memories platform we have expanded how individuals can interact with obituaries. Once you find the loved one you are looking for, just click on their name to access their obituary. You will be taken to our Book of Memories platform, where you can read their obituaries but you can also leave condolences, light a memorial candle as a tribute, send flowers or a sympathy card, share some memorable photos, or you can even make a donation.
Use the search features to conveniently find your loved one. The easiest way is to type the person’s name into the search box. You can also click “All Services” to find the obits within different date ranges. Click the “Sort: Date of Death” button to sort the online memorials by service date, date of death, or by last name.
