In 1897 J.W. Sechrest & Son Funeral Service opened for business with Joe and Bob Sechrest at the helm. They originally rented space on North Main St. before relocating to Washington St. and were the first in town to provide a motorized hearse and ambulance. After several additional moves, the business is now located at 1301 East Lexington Ave. As our city grew and the times changed, we changed to continue to serve the families in this community with attention to detail, a sense of perfection and high professional quality.
Today we are proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. Dignity Memorial providers offer exclusive benefits, including National Transferability of Prearranged Services, the Bereavement Travel Program, the 24-Hour Compassion Helpline® and access to an acclaimed grief management library. As North America’s largest provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services, the Dignity Memorial brand is your assurance of quality, value, caring service and exceptional customer satisfaction.
