Trinity Memorial Centers is the first new funeral facility in Kingsport in more than 40 years. Shupe and Leonard envision the new facility as an innovative and convenient option for families in the region.
As part of the welcoming activities, Congressman Phil Roe and Tennessee Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey spoke at the event. Dignitaries from the City of Kingsport and the owners of Trinity Memorial Centers also took part in the ceremony. A reception and fellowship followed.
“The funeral industry is under-represented in the Kingsport area,” says Shupe. “There are times when families need to schedule funeral services, and all the existing facilities are already booked. There is definitely a need for additional service providers to meet the needs in this area.”
Trinity Memorial Centers is conveniently located at 1221 Stewball Circle near the intersection of John B. Dennis Highway and Interstate 26. Taking an existing building that was previously purposed for a different use, the owners of Trinity Memorial Centers have conducted an extensive renovation to prepare the facility for new use.
Trinity Memorial Center will host an open house on Saturday and Sunday, November 2-3, from 1-4 p.m. The community is invited to tour the new facility and learn about the services offered.
Trinity Memorial Centers is an inclusive provider where customers can handle all of their end-of-life needs. The facility includes multiple visitation rooms as well as options for purchasing caskets, vaults, urns and other items. Floral services are provided on-site as well, and a gift shop with sympathy cards, memorial gifts and other items is available.
