Funeral Home Opens New ‘Modern’ Chapel Near Howell

HOW TWP. — A couple of longtime funeral home owners in Livingston County say they have converted a former credit union into the most modern funeral home location the Howell area has seen in more than 100 years.

Todd Borek and Karl Jennings have opened Borek Jennings Funeral Homes, Howell Memorial Chapel, in a former Lake Trust Credit Union bank building at 1700 W. Highland Road/M-59.

Borek and Jennings say the new, approximately 9,200-square-foot site offers a host of benefits, including improved accessibility for mourners, on-site parking and close proximity to Howell Memorial Cemetery, which is located next door. It will also be a meeting place for grief support groups.

“The biggest advantage is the much more modern architecture that lends itself to both intimate and open spaces,” said Jennings. “Here we have both, places where people can come together, and we’ve made sure we have places where people can be quiet together.”
