- About Us
We are happy to announce that Lawson-Roessner Funeral Home has now become Schaffer Funeral Home South, Lawson-Roessner Chapel. Please read the message below from the previous owner:
I am writing this letter to inform you that after 43 years of serving Defiance as a funeral director and 39 years of owning Lawson-Roessner Funeral Home, I have made the difficult decision to sell. It has been my privilege and honor to care for families in Defiance over the years. I want to ensure that Defiance continues to receive the care needed. Jayne and I have accepted an offer, to purchase the funeral home, from the Dan Schaffer family. They will extend their care to include families that we have served. I wish you peace and happiness in the future.
"Proud to be locally owned, serving all faiths and area communities for over 160 years, celebrating the lives of everyone who makes our area a great place to live."

The entire staff at Schaffer's was phenomenal. My Mother had a preplanned funeral, but there were extra details and questions we had. They answered them all and took great care and extra time with us. At a time of grieving it is nice to have someone go above and beyond to help you. I recommend Schaffer’s for all your funeral needs.
