Thank you for visiting the website for Wolfe-Nelson Funeral Home in Sciotoville and D.W. Swick-Nelson Funeral Homes in New Boston and South Webster, Ohio. For over 45 years we have been independent, family-owned and operated funeral homes serving local families with dignity and honor.  Our licensed funeral directors are caring and experienced professionals who understand that each family is unique and has personal requests and traditions that are of the utmost importance.

We do our best to serve your family with compassion during a time when it is most needed. We believe small, caring firms serve our communities best – that's one of the main reasons we remain family-owned and operated.

Wolfe-Nelson Funeral Home and D.W. Swick-Nelson Funeral Homes service the entire Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky area. We provide full service funerals at one of our funeral homes or the church, home, or other location chosen by your family and we are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year to serve you. We also provide cremation services and can handle any transportation arrangements necessary when a loved one dies out of the area. We offer a variety of pre-need services and encourage families to plan ahead before the need arises.

Video Tributes are one of the latest innovations we offer the families we serve. These “mini-movies” are a wonderful way to pay additional tribute to the deceased loved one and include pictures provided by friends and family. The Tribute is usually shown continuously at the visitation and before the funeral. Each family is also provided with a DVD copy of the Tribute for their own personal viewing, and additional copies are always available.

We are proud to be locally owned and operated. Most importantly, we don't answer to some far away corporate executive. The Nelson and Swick families are here to take care of your family during it’s time of need.  It’s our family serving your family.
