Welcome to the new
home page for Riffe's Funeral Service, Inc. We are located in
scenic Giles County, nestled in the mountains of Southwest Virginia
near the banks of the majestic New River, offering a variety of
funeral and cremation services.
From humble beginnings in 1932 and through
three generations since, our family and staff have worked long and
hard to care for the families of Southwest Virginia and Southern
West Virginia, at the absolute lowest time in their lives with
dignity, class and compassion.
These days, families are more value-conscious than
ever, even more so during the loss of a loved one. That's why
Riffe's Funeral Service truly is the better value during your time
of need. Here's why.
We have the largest visitation and funeral
facilities in Giles County (over 10,000 square feet across three
adjoining buildings, to be exact). That means plenty of room
for family and friends to gather and honor the life of their loved
In addition, Riffe's Funeral Service offers a
better way to choose caskets, outer burial containers, cremation
urns and other merchandise using our "Family Advisor" selection
system. That means less stress and anxiety in picking out
funeral goods and services, as opposed to walking through a room
full of displays.
It has been our privilege to offer dignified,
meaningful tributes, at an affordable cost in an
environment that offers spacious comfort, compassion and
convenience. And this new website is but one way that we can
share with you information to help you prepare to celebrate the
life of your loved one. Should you have any questions, we'd
love to help you! Feel free to give us a call or drop us a
line via e-mail. Our contact information can be found at the
