Turning Memories Into Memorials
Since 1969, Smith Monument Company has provided central Iowa
families with quality, affordable granite monuments. A monument is
a symbol of one's life. It can characterize what one enjoyed doing
in his or her life and is a place where one can go remember their
With our local indoor display, our families can feel and see the
actual granite color and design before making any final decisions.
We have a large selection book of monument designs compiled from
over the years to choose from, which include various lettering
styles, engraving options, and customized etching options. A family
can bring in a picture of a family portrait, the family farm, a
hunting expedition, or a symbol of an individual's occupation and
we can etch the design onto the monument.
We first consult with our families to give them options with
designing their monument. We will then sketch the monument design
to scale for the family to see what the monument would look like
with the lettering style and any engravings or etchings. We strive
for perfection and will work with the family until the design
completely meets their expectations.
We also carry a complete line of cemetery vases and bronze markers
to choose from.
If you would like to set up an appointment to have your monument
designed, please contact Joel, John or Bill at 641-236-3134 or by
