Funeral Director / Co-Owner
Scott Huffman has been a licensed funeral director in Iowa for over 35 years. He graduated from Mid-America College of Funeral Service in Jeffersonville, Indiana, in 1982, and served his internship with Bickford-Murray Funeral Home in Greenfield, Iowa. Scott worked for funeral homes in Emmetsburg and Grundy Center, Iowa. In 1997, he and his wife, Connie, became partners in Christensen-Ciha Funeral Homes in Ida Grove, Odebolt, and Battle Creek, Iowa. They eventually became sole owners of the firms and changed the name to Christensen-Huffman Funeral Homes. In 2009, they added a chapel in Sac City, Iowa.
In 2013, Scott & Connie sold their northwest Iowa funeral homes to purchase Chet Ryan Mortuary (now Ryan Funeral Home) in Nevada, Iowa.
Connie Huffman, co-owner of Ames Monument and Cremation Center, began working in the funeral industry while her husband Scott was serving his internship in Greenfield, Iowa, and over the years has continued and expanded her role as office manager, bookkeeper, and pre-arrangement counselor. Connie and Scott have three grown children, Justin, Jill, and Sam, and are proud grandparents to four boys and one girl.
