Newspaper Article - circa 1915

The firm that would become Mathers-Gaunce Funeral Home started business in 1855. Much has changed in all walks of life since the founding of W.T. Henry-Cabinet & Coffin Maker a century and a half ago. Our history is a story that causes us to pause and reflect on our one goal, to provide compassionate quality care to the families of this area.

We invite you to see our history through a few pictures from our archives. Click on any of the pictures on this page for a larger version.
