About Our Greenlawn Staff 

Staff members of Greenlawn Funeral Home Inc. are caring and experienced professionals who understand that each family is unique and has personal requests and traditions. These requests and traditions are of utmost importance to our staff of licensed funeral directors.

Our History

In 1876, Joseph Diemer settled in the area as one of Springfield, MO’s earliest pioneer families. At the time of the move, Benjamin Jacob Diemer was 12 years old. Benjamin, Greenlawn’s founder, was one of Joseph’s seven children. He attended Springfield Public School, then grew up to help operate the Diemer Brother’s Dairy Farm. In 1903 he was elected Judge of Greene county. During his tenure he was largely responsible for the erection of the historic Greene county courthouse. In 1905, after seeing a need in the area, he marked off part of the Diemer farm and started the Greenlawn Cemetery. Having a fondness for trees, he planted hundreds of maple trees. Today they stand as a testament to the forethought of one man, and are enjoyed by thousands of people who drive by to see them each fall.

Greenlawn was incorporated in 1924, and Benjamin continued to run things along with his son Harry until his death in 1942. Harry B. Diemer and wife Una were very involved in the community and opened a theater downtown. They had one son, Jack. Jack served in WWII and returned home to work alongside his father Harry. They started the vault shop and monument shop in the fifties- then built Greenlawn Funeral Home North in 1966.  Harry passed away just a short time before Greenlawn Funeral Home South was completed in 1976.

Jack Diemer had one son, Jake H. Diemer. They also worked together and built Greenlawn Funeral Home Branson in 1987. Jake purchased Pitts Chapel in 1996 after his father’s passing. Jake also had one son, Jason J. Diemer. Together they built Greenlawn Funeral Home East, completed in 2006. Jason also has a son, Boston Jacob Diemer who now comprises the 6th generation.

Today, Jake and Jason are involved in the day to day operations of the funeral home, and continue the tradition of community involvement by participating in Ozarks Racing Association, Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks, local YMCA, local sports youth teams, Alzheimer’s Association, and American Cancer Society.
