Lenz & Betz Funeral Home has been serving the residents of western Montgomery County for the past 80 years. Originally located on West Grand Street, in the Village of Palatine Bridge, the home named, Lenz Funeral Home, was started by Donald Lenz, Sr. in 1929. In 1937, the business was relocated to 69 Otsego Street, Canajoharie, to accommodate the growing Lenz family. The building was purchased from William B. Smith of Arkell & Smith Sack Company. |
In 1976, Donald Lenz, Sr. passed away and ownership was passed to his son, Donald Lenz, Jr., who was working by his side at the time. The business continued to flourish until Donald Lenz, Jr. passed away unexpectedly in 1989. The business was then acquired by the Betz Funeral Home of Amsterdam and renamed Lenz & Betz Funeral Home in 1990.
Today, Lenz & Betz Funeral Home continues its tradition of excellence in funeral and cremation services to the residents of Western Montgomery County. Currently owned by Betz, Rossi, Bellinger & Stewart Family Funeral Homes, Inc. of Amsterdam, we have become the largest funeral service provider in the Mohawk Valley. With five convenient locations throughout Montgomery and Fulton Counties, we continue to offer superior services at affordable prices.
