Welcome to Thomas L. Geisel Funeral Home & Cremation Center

We at Geisel Funeral Home recognize that our primary role as a funeral home is to take care of families in need of our services.  But we also place great importance in getting behind causes that we feel strongly about.  You may have seen some of our public service announcements addressing our concerns with texting and driving.  If so, we hope it had a meaningful impact on your own viewpoint.  There's no question; texting and driving has become a real epidemic. So please join us by speaking out against texting and driving, and help make our community a safer one.

  • Sending or receiving a text takes a driver's eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent-at 55 mph-of driving the length of an entire football field, blind. (VTTI)
  • For drivers 15-19 years old involved in fatal crashes, 21 percent of the distracted drivers were distracted by the use of cell phones (NHTSA)
  • The number of people killed in distraction-affected crashes decreased slightly from 3,360 in 2011 to 3,328 in 2012. An estimated 421,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver, this was a nine percent increase from the estimated 387,000 people injured in 2011.
  • Engaging in visual-manual subtasks (such as reaching for a phone, dialing and texting) associated with the use of hand-held phones and other portable devices increased the risk of getting into a crash by three times. (VTTI)

A little more about us....The Geisel name has been associated with helping families through times of loss since 1919. We at the Thomas L. Geisel Funeral Home are one of six funeral homes in the Geisel family, all of which are privately owned and operated.

"A Family Serving Families" has been our slogan for over 90 years, and we feel it conveys our philosophy.  Our diverse staff not only includes five licensed funeral directors, but also a vast number of others, people who are your neighbors and friends. ........Because we know, without question, that a friendly, familiar face is an invaluable comfort to those in difficult times.

While offering traditional and non-traditional services, advance planning, and on-site cremation services, we strive to provide a delicate balance of compassion and professionalism while minimizing the difficulty of a loss. We measure our performance by the sincerity in the thank you's we receive, not the bottom line in a quarterly stock report, which may be the reason we've grown to become Chambersburg's preferred funeral home.

From Our Family to Yours...

Relating to the needs of area families takes a special kind of understanding; one which is nurtured over years of knowing what is most important. At THOMAS L. GEISEL FUNERAL HOME, our understanding of family care comes from generations working together, growing up with our community, and responding to each family's needs as if they were our own. We are committed to total care, from our family to yours.

1. offering advanced funeral planning and services.
2. maintaining a compassionate, full-time licensed staff available 24 hours.
