Robert and Betsey Talbot, Owners
Rob, licensed funeral director and his wife, Betsey Talbot have been the proud and dedicated owners of the Talbot Family Funeral Homes and Scenic River Cremation Center since April of 2004. Each day they work closely together to ensure the families they serve receive only the best in care.
In July of 2005, they purchased Poeschel funeral home in Mondovi. Then in October of 2011 the business was expanded to serve families with the addition of Scenic Rivers Cremation Center and Precious Companion Cremation Care. Now if a family desires cremation, they can have the peace of mind that their love one will never leave our care. Rob is a licensed funeral director in both Wisconsin and Minnesota and Betsey is a licensed pre-need intermediary.
