I would be remiss if you left our website and didn’t have a peek behind the scenes to understand how Kellogg Memorials originated. The business itself began in 1899 in Mexico, NY under Frederick L. Kellogg Sr., who operated it with his sons George and Fred Jr. until he passed in 1946. His sons continued to run the business for several more years, eventually turning it over to Phyllis Tyler in 1969. Kellogg Memorials became a Rock of Ages independent dealership in the 1970s, and present ownership took the reins in 2004. And though we are often asked, no, we are not Kelloggs or even related to the family. But we do know them and are thankful for the opportunity they gave us to continue their wonderful legacy.
My husband Ron and I jokingly tease each other that while I am the brains of the business, he is the brawn and we can’t “git ‘er dun” without him. We both pour a lot of ourselves into the business and the families we’re so honored to serve. After so much time in the death care industry, we still absolutely love what we do! Helping to deliver exceptional customer service on our team are Aimee Mohr and Laurie Fusco. Their love and devotion to what they do, and to our family, are unparalleled. They make Kellogg Memorials a fun place to work and a safe, warm place for our customers. Aimee is our office manager in Mexico; Laurie takes care of things in Rome. We are blessed to have them!
