Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Why Us?

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Learn the legacy.

Opening in the spring of 2008 Living Waters Funeral Home is one of South Carolina’s finest and newest funeral service facilities. We are located between Greenville and Spartanburg on Hwy 29 convenient to the Upstate’s major population centers. We are easily accessible by personal visit, telephone or this website and prepared to serve the needs of our community. Mark and Paula Patterson’s dedication and devotion to family, friends and church is now extended to the greater community. Living Waters will never be considered merely a business venture, but a place of remembrance and hope where lives are celebrated and personal relationships are strengthened. Our experienced and compassionate staff is available to assist families during their time of loss.
