Changing from Maclean's to Labs'
In October 1969, Mr. Maclean retired to Florida and sold the funeral home to Mr.& Mrs. Walter Labs. The Labs’ along with their family moved into the second and third floors while operating the Walter L. Labs Funeral Home on the first floor. Mr.& Mrs. Labs expanded the funeral home with a second addition on the original home. The addition provided an enlarged chapel, new main entrance and garage space. In the years to come the Labs’ made more improvements to the facility including additional parking, a second garage, an exit driveway and the land purchase behind the funeral home. The business also became incorporated to the Labs Funeral Home, Inc. For 37 years the Labs family lived on the second and third floors, while maintaining a small town family owned and operated funeral home.
