In 1917, White's Funeral Home was founded by Dan and Grace White. It is now in its third generation of continuous service and serving all faiths.
Dan White, a Missouri native, began his career in the historical combination furniture and undertaking business. Preferring the opportunity to help families who have experienced a death, Dan became an undertaker only, which eventually became a lifelong experience.
In 1926, like many funeral establishments at that time, he started an ambulance service. Owning a vehicle that could be used to carry a casket horizontally or the placement of a gurney, they served all neighboring communities. Even today, decades later, many share stories of newborn mothers being returned home at no charge from the hospitals where they gave birth.
