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.

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.

Technology has certainly changed the ways that funeral services are handled. It has provided a means through which families can personalize each service to reflect and honor the person they are remembering.  There are several ways to personalize a memory of a loved one.

Memorial Tribute Videos are becoming very popular. 30-40 photos can be put together in a video format, and the video can be played at visitation or a funeral service. The video is yours to keep, and we can make copies for family members to have as a keepsake.

Jewelry is unique and meaningful way to memorialize a loved one. Thumbies are fingerprint keepsakes that are made from an imprint of your loved one’s fingerprint, and then cast into sterling silver or gold. It can be worn as a charm on a necklace.

Life’s Treasures Jewelry can hold a lock of hair or a small portion of the ashes of a loved one in either a pendant or a bracelet.

Tribute Angels are hand-crafted and molded using the flowers from your loved ones funeral. It provides a wonderful way to preserve the beautiful flowers that otherwise only last a few days.
