History of Tullahoma TN Funeral Homes


Tullahoma TN funeral homes and American funeral homes have a long history.  Communities would have a group of women who came in to help with the “laying out of the dead” which was the term used.  They were then placed in the parlor or nicer room of the family home. The body was closely observed for three days to make sure the person didn’t wake from a deep sleep or illness before the burial. This is where the term “wake” that we know today for visiting/viewing the deceased.

Embalming (which originated in Egypt) was used in the U. S. for the first time during the Civil War, and it gained in popularity very quickly after President Lincoln’s funeral train toured much of the nation. 

Tullahoma TN funeral homes as well as those in other areas typically do embalming, grief counseling, and other services today that can help you .
