Our History

We stand behind our reputation and will continue to serve our community with the values instilled by our funeral directors. Anderson-Marry Funeral Home has locations in Adrian, Tecumseh and Blissfield, Michigan, serving families throughout Lenawee County and the Southeastern Michigan area. We help families enjoy the memories of yesterday, focus on the challenges of today as they deal with death, and look to the promise of tomorrow, and the healing that it brings. Our funeral homes in Michigan are designed for private gatherings to honor your loved ones. This is a time to cherish those relationships, comfort each other with the grief that comes with death, and plan for future family healing.


Michael L. Anderson learned early in life that his calling was to serve families at times of loss. Michael’s vision as a funeral director originated when he suffered loss as a child, worked with families grappling with death while working at Bixby Hospital as a young man and through work experience in funeral homes in some seven states, including a long period of time in Charleston, S.C. Once Michael decided to establish his own funeral home he sought the assistance of his family and friends. He was met with many obstacles as he returned to Adrian, where generations of families had used established funeral homes for years. Despite these obstacles Michael’s heart and determination would sustain him.

On March 8, 1988, he built and opened his first funeral home; he soon expanded the entrance and front Chapel. Later, he created The Event Center and a large Chapel was added in 1997 bringing his original building from 4,000 sq. ft. to over 12,000 sq. ft.

In 2013 Mike and Lenawee County, Blissfield resident Arin Rudd purchased a building in Blissfield and converted it to the Anderson-Rudd Funeral Home. This large, single-level facility provides an inviting, home like setting where members of a close-knit community can gather for uniquely personal funerals.
