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.
