WADSWORTH — Midwest Everlasting Memorials creates markers and other memorial items for loved ones.

The 10-year-old family business, owned by Dave and Kim Joyce, moved Dec. 1 to a new showroom located at 1244 High St. Kim Joyce said the new site offers more room to display a large selection of available memorials, such as head and gravestones, bronze memorials, benches, cremation urns, flower vases, blocks, bricks, boulders and more. The old site is home to the engraving work the business does.

Joyce said having a large stock of memorials on site allows customers to see exactly what they will get instead of having to rely on a picture of the selected item in a book or magazine.

“We are a full-service company, and we offer not only the memorial but do all the design work, engrave the item in-house and we deliver to the burial site and do the installation,” Kim Joyce said. “We create affordable memorials to honor your loved ones forever. Customer service is very important to us, so we take the time to make sure we get the right memorial for each customer.”

In addition to engraving work, Joyce said Midwest specializes in laser etching, which means they can add pictures of loved ones to any memorial. The business also can create religious memorial designs and military memorials.

According to Kim Joyce, Midwest does custom design work to create unique memorials for customers, as well as stone monuments, columbariums and mausoleums.

Midwest also offers preplanning services, which she said gives customers the opportunity to personally select their own memorials.

In addition to memorializing loved ones, Midwest offers various kinds of memorials for pets, such as monuments, pet rocks, urns and jewelry that hold the remains of a cremated pet.

The jewelry also is available to hold cremated remains of people.

All of the engraving work for Midwest Everlasting Memorials is done through Midwest Engraving, which was established 28 years ago. That part of the business also engraves fundraiser bricks, custom signs, baseball bats, wooden plaques and glass items, as well as laser etch manufactured parts.

Business hours are Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays and evenings by appointment.
