About Us

"Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy." 
That is what you will get when you choose Van Hoose & Steele Funeral Home Inc.

Our History

Est. 1923

When Mr. Maudlin died in 1965, his wife, Bertha Frierson Mauldin, became owner of Van Hoose-Freeman & Mauldin Funeral Home and remained owner until 1969 when she sold the business to Charlie Steele, Sr. and Charles Green. Mr. Steele became sole owner of Van Hoose-Freeman and Mauldin Funeral Home in 1971. In 1972, Reverend Theodore Wilerford became a business partner with Mr. Steele but sold his interest back to Mr. Steele, Sr. in 1974. Mr. Charlie Steele, Sr. invited his wife, Eleanor W. Steele, to become his business partner and they remained in partnership until 1976 when they transferred their ownership to their sons, Charles Steele, Jr. and Danny R. Steele. Mr. Charlie Steele, Sr. died February 27, 1987 and Mrs. Eleanor W. Steele died December 27, 2003.

For over 80 years, Van Hoose and Steele has been an integral part of the Tuscaloosa community, providing quality funeral service at an affordable price, and with the highest level of professionalism.
As we move into the 21st Century, we will foster the use of new technologies, delivering programs, services, and opportunities to educate our clients to the practical application of new technologies.

We will continue to focus on the needs of those we serve and find ways to provide services, benefits, and programs that are beneficial to the West Alabama community as well as the world.

We hope you will consider us to be caring neighbors and valuable friends when the need arises.

Meet the Team

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
