Our Heritage in Funeral Service to Cook and surrounding counties has been nearly 100 years beginning with A.D. Wiseman and then his son Thad Wiseman. The Wiseman Funeral Home was a well known place for service and it's location on old US Hwy. 41.  Vernon A. "Pete" Boone began working with A. D. Wiseman and Thad Wiseman in 1954. Pete along with his wife, Luverne Rewis Boone, opened Boone Funeral Home in 1964 and in 1972 purchased the Wiseman Funeral Home. Luverne was a Registered Nurse working both with Dr. Fred Clements and at the Adel Memorial Hospital. She passed away unexpectedly in 1994. Dale V. Boone, son of Pete and Luverne, grew up in funeral service being fully licensed as a funeral director and embalmer in the early 1980's.  Dale has always helped others as the example set by his parents. Dale is married to Dawn Spearman and they have three sons: Tyler, Tanner, Turner and two grandchildren Kenly and Kolby Boone.
      James Braddock "Jamie" Grimsley, Jr. joined our staff in 2002 and is a licensed funeral director and embalmer. Brad Bostic is currently concluding his degree in funeral service and will also be licensed in 2012. We continue training younger generations to serve our community on into the future. Being one of the oldest Funeral Homes in the State of Georgia, we have an excellant and very qualified staff. Currently we have three Licensed Funeral Directors and Embalmers with over 100 years of experience on staff along with two licensed apprentices. Michael Hughes has completed his apprenticeship. We maintain all State and Federal Laws and Standards of licensure and continuing education. 
      This business belongs to the Lord and we as his stewards serve Him and others in 
                        a Christian manner as we would treat our own families.
