Hahn Funeral Home is a local family owned and operated funeral home. In 1937 Marcel J. De Vos started the De Vos Funeral Home located at the corner of Eighth and West Streets, Mishawaka, IN.
Marcel, his wife and son owned and operated the firm until 1976. C. Ronald Hahn has been assisting families in the community as a funeral director since 1962. In 1976 he and his wife Marsha purchased the De Vos Funeral Chapel. Since then Ron has instituted many structural and service changes to the firm. After graduating from Vincennes University, Ron’s son, Pat joined the firm as a licensed funeral director in 1983.
Two years later they purchased the Ballard Funeral Chapel located at 118 S. Mill Street, Mishawaka, IN, which started in 1903.
