Our History

Reed’s Chapel was founded in 1960 by Mr. Charlie Reed. After his death in 1970 his wife, Frances, continued to operate the business until it was purchased by Wayne and Virginia Lewis in July of 1978. Wayne and Virginia’s son, David, joined the business as a licensed embalmer and funeral director after he graduated from John A. Gupton Mortuary School in Nashville in 1981. Wayne and Virginia served the funeral needs of this area for over 30 years. Virginia passed away in 2008 and Wayne in 2012. Now David and his sons, Benjamin and Adam, carry on the tradition.
