Our History

Frank Whitfield opened Whitfield Funeral Chapel in Medora in the middle to late 1800s. Paul Warner joined Frank and they opened the Whitfield & Warner Funeral Home in Brighton in 1938. Upon Frank's death on July 25, 1947, Nelson Targhetta came to work for Paul.

In 1954 Paul purchased the Macoupin Funeral Service from Mrs. Elizabeth Riefenberg in Chesterfield, IL.

In this same year Paul also established the Warner Funeral Home in Shipman, IL.

Nelson became a partner with Paul in the early 1970.

Brad Targhetta joined Paul & Nelson as an employee of the Warner-Targhetta Funeral Homes in 1980. Brad became a partner with Paul & Nelson in 1982.

In 1987 Brad & Nelson purchased Paul's remaining shares and became partners. They later incorporated the funeral homes into the Targhetta Funeral Homes, Inc.

Upon Nelson's retirement, Brad purchased his shares and became the sole owner.

In 1999, the Chesterfield funeral home was sold to another firm.

On March 29, 2019, Alex and Meghan Anderson purchased Targhetta Funeral Homes, Inc. from Brad, upon his retirement, and renamed them Anderson Family Funeral Home.
