Legacy of Service Continues in New Expansion
At Bopp Chapel, families come first.
In fact, the funeral home has recently undergone
a 6,200 square foot expansion and renovation focusing
on the needs of the families they serve.
Visitors will notice changes immediately with
an expanded parking area and a new, easily accessible
entrance. The new entrance, facing Manchester
Road, also features 22 foot vaulted ceilings.
“It is important to make sure our facilities
are comfortable and convenient for the families
we serve,” said Louis Bopp II, co-owner
of Bopp Chapel. “From the moment you pull
into the parking lot, we want you to feel like
our facilities have been created to make every
step easier for you.”
“Many suggestions we have received from
families over the years have been incorporated
in our plans,” added Richard Mueller, Jr.,
co-owner of Bopp Chapel. “Our recent expansion
and renovation is focused on meeting the needs
of community families now and in the future.”
These requests have included an area where families
can have private time together. The funeral home
responded by including an enlarged main floor
lounge for families to take a quiet moment to
themselves. A children’s area is also available,
providing younger family members with an area
of their own.
The expansion also includes a large visitation
parlor that can be split into three rooms, making
it comfortable to accommodate gatherings of various
sizes. The chapel has been refurbished and although
it remains in the same spot, it is now enclosed
within the building.
“We want families to know they can trust
the Bopp legacy of service to continue,”
said Bopp. “Our recent construction is just
another way we are continually working to better
serve our community.”
Located at the corner of Manchester and North
Taylor Avenues, Bopp Chapel was established in
1902 and is the oldest family owned business in
the Kirkwood area.
