Our History

I n 1890, Fred G. Pomeroy opened his own undertaking establishment in the rear of his furniture store. In 1912, Fred's son, Elmer R. Pomeroy, joined his father in the business. When Fred died in 1915 at the age of 60, Elmer took over the business.

In 1935, Elmer moved the funeral business from the rear of the furniture store to its present location on Howard Ave. and Sanborn Ave. Elmer's son, Fred G. Pomeroy, receieved his mortuary science license in 1947. In 1962, Elmer died after serving 50 years in the funeral industry. Elmer's son took over, and in 1965 purchased the funeral home in Lexington. Fred sold the furniture store in 1974. Fred's son, Gary L. Pomeroy, receieved his license in the funeral business in 1976, becoming the fourth generation of the Pomeroy family in the industry. 

In 1988, the Pomeroys purchased an additional funeral home in Carsonville. There are currently three Pomeroy Funeral Homes in the thumb area.
