For more than a century, providing compassionate funeral care has been the Penwell-Gabel tradition. We opened our funeral home in 1994, and over the years, our professional staff has served generations of Olathe families with compassion and care.
We will assist you with designing a unique and memorable service for your loved one at our chapel or a location of your choice.
Our reception room offers a beautiful, convenient place to gather before or after a funeral or memorial service. Just a few steps down the hall from our main chapel, your family and guests will appreciate the time to share memories and spend time together, without the need to travel to another venue.
You can bring in your own refreshments or select one of our catering packages. Custom menus are also available. Please give us a call for more information or download our information flyer.
