Our History... Founded in 1853 by Frank Staffan, the funeral home business has been passed down from father to son for several generations. The Mitchell family moved to Chelsea in 1981.  John Sr. and Gloria Mitchell bought the Staffan Funeral Home from George and Kathryn Staffan, ending a four-generation Staffan legacy.
About Green Burial Staffan-Mitchell Funeral Home continues to be leaders in the industry. We are proud to offer biodegradable caskets, burial shrouds, environmentally friendly embalming fluid, and burial wash.
Memorial Keepsakes Who was this loved one? What were their passions, their beliefs? What did they like to do in their spare time? Who did they love and what were the gifts and joys they gave to us? A memorial should reflect and pay tribute to the person it commemorates.


In 2001 the Mitchell family moved the funeral home from the downtown district to its current location at 901 N. Main St. As one of the newest funeral homes built in Washtenaw County, the 8,000 square-foot barrier-free building is spacious and open. It radiates a warm, home-like atmosphere.

In 2004 Mike Mitchell joined the business and now the brothers run the operation together.  Since 1995 the Mitchell family has been fortunate to carry on the tradition of care that had been set by the Milner and Caskey Families.

Lisa Munson

Lisa (Bolen) Munson, age 55, of Grass Lake, MI passed away on January 15, 2019 with her family by her side. Lisa was born in Ann Arbor, MI on May 10, 1963 to Howard and Barbara Bolen.  She was doted on as a child, and throughout childhood, teenage years, and into her adult years made friends wherever she went.

An extremely easy person to love, she was a great mother, a bossy sister, a good hairdresser, and loving wife.  Her opinion was never a mystery, but many also sought her advice as she was an amazing best friend. If you knew Lisa, you knew fun. Her laugh was infectious, and her personality filled the room.

She is survived by her husband Jay Munson, daughter Holly Tobias, and stepson Jeremy (Devin) Munson.  She is also survived by her sisters DeDe (Brian) Scudder and Jenny (Phil) Kraus. She was preceded in death by parents Howard and Barbara Bolen and grandparents Silas and Claudine Bolen and Charles and Jean Stanley.

The family will receive friends at Staffan-Mitchell Funeral Home in Chelsea, MI on Friday January 18, 2019 at 1:00 pm followed by a service at 2:00 pm officiated by Evangelist Gwenn Parker.  A private burial will take place at a later date. Expressions of sympathy may be made to the family.
