We mark our lives with milestones. Throughout our lifetime, these noteworthy events are marked with a ceremony. Mankind has done this since the beginning. When a death occurs, family and friends gather to celebrate a life that has been lived and to share memories.

The staff of the Thomas Family Funeral Home of Minot, North Dakota, is ready and willing to assist you in planning and orchestrating a personalized service of remembrance. We have established a reputation for service built on excellence, warmth, and personalized caring attention. When a family requests our service, time after time over several generations, they are acknowledging a profound trust in our family, and our service. We sincerely appreciate the trust that thousands of families have placed in the Thomas Family during the past 84+ years, and we continue to strive to measure up to all your expectations.
