Serving the Sarasota area since 1948 with pride, honesty and compassion, the Toale Brothers name has become a long-term legacy in our community—one that is now proudly in its third generation with sisters Tiffany Toale Holsbeke and Stephanie Toale Lynch.
While most funeral homes in our region have been sold to multinational corporations, this family had a different plan. In being a very small, local, family-owned and operated company, Toale Brothers made it their mission to serve the Sarasota, Bradenton and Venice communities with a personal touch—never compromised by accountability to far-off stockholders. They are accountable to you. And that’s the legacy each generation has committed to uphold—including Tiffany and Stephanie.
As the new generation at the forefront, the sisters bring a new generation of ideas, innovations and improvements. They look to grow the family business through technology, making it easier for people to connect with their services, ask questions and receive guidance.
“We want to get out of the importance of pre-arranging,” says Stephanie. “Our informative seminar luncheons are on hold currently, but we are reviewing ways via different platforms to provide expert advice on topics such as estate planning, trusts, assisted living and more.”
Tiffany and Stephanie also share the Toale Brothers’ longstanding commitment to giving back to the community. While one is a mother of three and the other is a mother of a toddler, the sisters each have made time to join local charity groups and regularly contribute to nonprofits benefiting children and other worthwhile causes.
