Meet Our Family


     In 1997, the Cook family purchased Koops Funeral Chapel, continuing the personalized service and neighborly care begun by Gary and Nettie Koops. The business of helping families care for their loved ones comes naturally to Fred and Ron Cook. They each began helping with the funeral business at a very young age. What matters most to a family while they are in our care, matters to us. From answering your questions to providing steady emotional support, the Cook family and caring staff of Koops Funeral Chapel are dedicated to making sure everything goes smoothly.


     General Manager Ken Tidd grew up in Homer, Michigan graduating in 1995.  He graduated from the Mortuary Science program at Wayne State University in 1999 and obtained his license in 2000 after his apprenticeship at George White Funeral Home in Quincy, Michigan. Ken joined Koops Funeral Chapel as General Manager in January 2013.  Ken and his lovely wife Stephanie enjoy living in the Lake Odessa community with their two daughters. 


     Grieving is a process that takes time. The caring staff at Koops Funeral Chapel are committed to walking alongside individuals throughout the community who have suffered the loss of a loved one. As part of our Continuing Care Program, we host social events throughout the year to give individuals the opportunity to gather together for mutual support and encouragement. Our quarterly newsletter, Reflections, also helps families understand the grief journey and keeps them up to date about helpful seminars and community events.


     Through Greater Michigan Monument, we provide personalized sales, service, design and installation of quality memorials throughout Michigan. With advance funeral planning, we provide resources to guide families through all of their memorialization options. The Cook Family has a long history of supporting the communities they serve. We continue to look for ways to offer support to those in need to build a legacy that will impact families today and build a better tomorrow.
