TERRE HAUTE —
DeBaun Funeral Homes & Crematory has announced that its Callahan-DeBaun location at 2425 Wabash Ave. will now be known as DeBaun Funeral Home — Wabash Avenue Chapel.
Owner Curt DeBaun III said that DeBaun’s association with Callahan began in 2001. “At that time, we kept the Callahan name to honor the tradition that family had established and maintained since opening the facility in 1913,” DeBaun said. “Since then, DeBaun has served more than 1,000 families, and we believe it is time to move forward now under the DeBaun name.”
DeBaun said most funeral homes in Terre Haute are owned by out-of-state corporations. However, DeBaun Funeral Homes & Crematory is family-owned and has served Terre Haute and the surrounding community for four generations.
The DeBaun Funeral Home — Wabash Avenue Chapel will continue to operate with the same staff, DeBaun said.
