Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett will Friday take part in a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new minority-owned and operated funeral home. Sprowl Funeral Home & Cremation Care has invested $1.2 million in the new location, which co-owner Lloyd Sprowl calls a milestone for his team.

Sprowl owns and operates the facility with his sister, Lori Hobbs. The pair will also dedicate the facility's chapel to their uncle, Bishop Roland Martin, himself a mortician and pastor.

In addition to the traditional funeral and cremation services, the facility will also have space available to community groups and organizations. The chapel will also have the ability to live stream services for homebound people who are unable to physically attend.

“We consider the people we serve our family, as we recognize the responsibility we carry to ensure they and their loved ones are treated with dignity and respect at such an important time,” said Lori Hobbs, owner. “We are grateful for the opportunity to walk alongside our clients at this very meaningful moment in their lives.”

The funeral home is located near the $11 million Clifton Square Apartments mixed-use property developed by BWI LLC. Gary Hobbs with BWI will serve as chief financial officer of Sprowl.
