In 1914, Jim Johnson founded what is now Johnson Funeral Home in Georgiana, Alabama. Mr. Johnson had two sons, James Henry Johnson and Walter Frank Johnson, who helped run the funeral home and hardware businesses. After both sons returned from World War II in 1967, they took over the family businesses for their father, with Walter Frank Johnson in charge of Johnson Funeral Home and James Henry Johnson in charge of the hardware store.
Walter Frank continued to run the family-owned funeral home until his retirement in 1975. In 1975, Douglas C. Herring and Michael L. Middleton bought the business and ran it until 1996 when they sold to ECI Services. In 1999, Johnson Funeral Home was acquired by an affiliate of Service Corporation International, and ultimately became a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
Johnson Funeral Home has been serving families for nearly 100 years and is proud to uphold the heritage that was started by the Johnson family.
