In 1971, William Markey bought 2 funeral homes in Hamilton from William Dermody. The P.X. Dermody funeral homes were located on East Avenue South and King Street East. When William Markey died in 1978, his wife, Mary, and son, Chris, continued to run both.

To better serve the Hamilton community, Mary and Chris built a new funeral home, and in 1987, the Markey-Dermody Funeral Home opened to families.
