Chapel in the Pines Funeral Home was founded in 1980 by Jake and Pat Bliesner. Together they ran the business for a short time before Jakes passing in 1985. At that time, Pat took on all managerial responsibilities with the help of an assistant, Bill Sherman. The funeral home needed a directors license to hang in the building in order to operate. With Max having a license that was not in use the two parties worked out a deal in 1993 that made Max Skinner the licensed funeral director for Chapel in the Pines Funeral Home. This business decision would ultimately change the future of both funeral homes.
In October of 2007 Pat Bliesner decided it was time to retire and sold Chapel in the Pines Funeral Home to the Skinner family.
The Skinners updated Chapel in the Pines Funeral Home with a new casket display room. They also added a new foyer and remodeled both the mens and womens bathrooms. In August of 2012 the name Chapel in the Pines was changed to Skinner Funeral Home of Lansing.
The Skinner family is continually challenging themselves to strive for excellence in the funeral industry. Using core principles adopted by their founder, Max Skinner, holding themselves to the highest ethical and professional standards. The Skinner family takes great pride in their heritage that is evident in each family served.
