We believe this memorial was originally done by an inexperienced company. It was barely legible. We were able in this case to improve the engraving. Doesn't work out all the time, but we wanted to show what a difference it makes.

Customers, we wanted to give everyone an update with everything going on. Our business has endured many obstacles over the decades. We plan to be open normal business hours as long as we are able to do so. We will also take appointments after hours as well for those concerned with venturing out and that are higher risk. We can also take orders via phone and email. We are feeling the negative impact just as everyone else. Please buy local in everything you need. Be safe, and be positive.

01/10/2020

Due to the pending inclement weather, we will be closed for the reminder of the day 1/10. We may also be closed tomorrow as well depending on the amount of snow. Thank you and be safe.

Just wanted to share a before and after of a stone that we cleaned. It is amazing how much of a difference you can make even on a "clean" looking stone. Now it looks nearly as good as new.

Why buy from us? Service and price. We will listen to you and your needs. We try to treat you like family. We don't want to pressure you into a memorial that you can't afford. Neither do we nickel and dime you with extra charges. One price in most instances takes care of it from start to finish.

What's different about getting a memorial from us vs a funeral home or some of our competitors? You work with the same people that are going to sell, design, and set the memorial.

Thank you Hawkeye for your kindness and all of your help!!! I really appreciate it very much. I've highly recommended Patterson Monument to everyone I know.
Our cemetery plots are in Douds, IA. We are looking to buy a bench tombstone and have it placed there before too long. Do you do something similar to this?
