About Us

Honoring Tradition. Leading Change.

Why Choose Us...

NEW OWNERS. NEW LOOK. NEW CONCEPT.

 

At Colonial Chapel our focus is YOU. We've renovated our building to make it a warm and welcoming venue to host a special farewell for your loved one. Whether you want a traditional service or a Celebration of Life complete with a meal and champagne toast, we've got the facilities to accommodate your wishes--with everything on one level.

 

New owners Paul Seger and Scot DeWitt welcomes the opportunity to meet you and explain how Colonial Chapel is raising the bar to meet the ever-changing needs of Lincoln families. For example:

 

* We're technologically innovative. We use the latest in technology to create one-of-kind video tributes. We're also the only Nebraska funeral home with the E-signature guest book.

 

* We're creative 'Outside the Box' Celebration Planners

 

* Customized services to meet your needs and budget.

 

* A Funeral Director answers all after hour calls.
