Our Story



Dyer Funeral Home was opened in 1966 by brothers, Paul and Ralph Dyer.  The brothers designed and built the funeral home and lived there with their families in the two apartments upstairs.  They not only directed funerals but were also often called upon to sing. The Dyers operated the funeral home until the 1980's when they sold it to Hoyt and Shirley Maberry.  


The Maberry’s continued the excellent service begun by the Dyers. They, along with siblings, Joe and Debbie Maberry, lived in the two apartments upstairs, continuing the tradition of onsite ownership started by the Dyer brothers.  The Maberry’s expanded the facility by adding a chapel, arrangement office and selection room to the front of the original building.  They owned and operated the funeral home until 2001.


After several years of out-of-town ownership, the Horner Family purchased the funeral home in 2016, returning it to local ownership.  Jason Horner currently serves as manager, and along with long-time staff members, Jim and Aureila McCaleb and funeral director, Corey Hall, continues to provide quality service to local families.
