Lamberts purchase funeral home

Husband and wife Carl and Kim Lambert have purchased Graham Funeral Home at 635 Wilkesboro St., Mocksville.

They have made Mocksville their home for more than 30 years, where they raised their three children and have actively been involved in organizations and community projects.

He has more than three decades of funeral service experience serving Davie and surrounding areas at Eaton Funeral Service. He is a graduate of Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science. He is a certified funeral service practitioner, a designation from the Academy of Funeral Service Practice when one completes 180 hours of additional funeral service education and 20 hours annually in professional continuing education. He is also a certified crematory operator.

For 26 years, she worked with her husband. While he has taken care of families prior to a death, preneed and at need, she provided assistance and post service follow-up to families. She graduated with highest honors from Fayetteville Technical Community College and holds a funeral director’s certificate.

The husband and wife team treat working in the funeral profession as more of a ministry than a job. “With family being such an important part of their life, when you come to Lambert Graham, you will be treated as just that, family,” she said.

The couple is excited to be purchasing such a well maintained and state-of-the-art facility. They will be doing some redecorating and renovating.

The Lambert family invites the community to visit anytime. They will be happy to answer questions.

Dorothy Graham announced her retirement but plans to work at the funeral home with the Lamberts as long as she is able. The couple plans to have a community open house in the near future, not only to share in the opening of Lambert Graham Funeral Home, but to celebrate the retirement of Dorothy Graham.
