In September of 1970, Mayer Funeral Home moved into a beautiful new one story brick building, designed for modern funeral service needs, located alongside the old funeral home. Upon completion, the old home was removed and a large parking area was installed in its place.
In 1978, John "Jack" Koppa joined Mayer Funeral Home. In 1995, after 17 years of working for the Mayer family, Jack had the opportunity to purchase the funeral home from John F. Mayer, Jr. Jack owned and operated the funeral home for 17 years until merging with Mahn Family Funeral Home in 2012.
