Dedication and Commitment to Serve

Hackett-Livingston Funeral Home is a family owned and operated business. We are large enough to give our families the same service as the largest funeral homes around, yet we are small enough that each family gets the level of attention and care they deserve.

Hackett Funeral Home was started by Fred N. Hackett, Sr. in 1951. Mr. Hackett established the ideals and quality service recognized by everyone in Southwest Iowa. That tradition was carried on by his son, Fred Hackett, Jr., and later by Vaughn Livingston, who joined the firm in 1983. Vaughn and his wife, Joan, bought the funeral home in 2002. Hackett-Livingston Funeral Home prides itself on its commitment to serving families in their community and the surrounding communities through some of the most difficult times in their lives.
