O ne of the early day residents of Lewistown, MT was Mr. George R. Creel. At the young age of 26, George was working in the Judith Hardware Store. At that time, the store offered caskets for sale. George noticed the care of the deceased and funeral planning were done in a very crude manner.
George pursued an education in Chicago and returned to Montana and obtained his license to practice in the funeral service industry.
George established Creel Funeral Home in 1902, one of Central Montana's oldest businesses. He was determined to provide a more professional undertaking service. Care and compassion for all were the principles and guidelines he followed.
