It's been over 100 years since the funeral home now owned and operated by William A. Cummins, Jr. and sister, Candace M. (Cummins) Svensson was founded in Hubbard, and although the years have passed, its commitment to the community continues to grow stronger. Kelley-Robb-Cummins Funeral home is a full service funeral home offering traditional services, cremation and cemetery monuments, with a grief counselor on staff, grief support groups and special honors for veterans, policemen and firemen. The funeral home was founded in 1901 by John Anderson. Clyde Kelley purchased the business in 1943, and was joined by his son, Robert Kelley, in the late 1950s. Dennis Robb purchased the funeral home in June of 1989. Bill and Candee purchased the business in December of 2009.

The Legends of the candle in the window are many. It has been said the candle was used to welcome the Christ child. The American colonists placed it in their windows to show weary travelers they were welcome into that home. Perhaps you heard it was a welcome sign for soldiers returning from battle. Although the legends are varied, the meanings are all the same. The candle in the window signifies "Welcome". The Kelley-Robb Funeral Home adopted the welcome candle as our logo and theme. The lighted candles in our window are a welcome sign to all who have suffered the loss of a loved one. We want to welcome you into our home during this time of need and bereavement.
Family Owned vs Chain
When choosing a funeral home, you may want to research whether or not the business is owned by a local family or run by a large corporation. There is a difference.
During the past twenty years, publicly-owned corporations have been consolidating the funeral business similarly to what has occurred in other businesses. Recently, this trend has reversed because the corporate-owned funeral homes have simply not measured up to the service that families receive from family-owned funeral homes.
Historically, funeral services have been provided by generations of local families who have deep roots in their community. When dealing with such an important event, turning to a funeral director whom you know and trust can make a world of difference. A family-owned firm will give you the personal attention and caring that you deserve, and the extra support that you will need after the funeral is over. You will also receive the outstanding professionalism that only generations of service can cultivate.
