The First Generation

In 1908, Polk Houston Searcy left Luverne, AL in a horse and buggy with his wife, Lallie Revel Searcy and opened a hardware and funeral home in downtown Enterprise. As Enterprise grew, so did the Searcy family. Polk and Lallie reared five children in Enterprise. Of those five children, Revel and Lomax followed their father and chose a lifetime career in the funeral profession. After the deaths of Revel and Lomax, Dorothy Bevis Searcy (wife of Lomax) and their son, J Lomax (Maxie) Searcy, Jr., continued the family tradition in funeral service. Lomax(Maxie) and Dorothy's other son William (Bill) Searcy joined the family in funeral service. The Searcy family proudly continues their service to our community with the addition of Bill's son, Will, into the business. In October of 2007, The Searcy family purchased the funeral home that was built by the Patterson family and changed the name to Searcy Funeral Home where we proudly continue to serve your family with a fourth generation of caring service to our community. We have now added a full-service crematory to our funeral home and have changed the name to Searcy Funeral Home and Crematory, a name that is respected in our community.

The Second Generation

After the death of her husband, Lomax, Dorothy Bevis Searcy found the responsibility of operating the family business had fallen directly on her shoulders. Dorothy (affectionately called Mama Dot) answered the call and made a necessary career change from wife and mother to a funeral service professional. She was actively involved in the day to day operations of the funeral home until age 90 when her health began to fail. During her later years, she joyfully continued to make her appearance "at work" every day. Mrs. Searcy (Mama Dot) passed away April 2, 2010 at the age of 92. She is missed by her family, her co-workers and friends as well as those lives she touched over the years.



The Third Generation

After the death of Revel Searcy and his father, Lomax, J Lomax (Maxie) Searcy Jr. worked along side his grandfather as he began the third generation of funeral service professional. Maxie ushered a new generation of the modern funeral service into the Enterprise area.

William Edward (Will) Searcy joined his father, Bill, into the funeral service profession upon his graduation from Auburn University. He continues to serve as the fourth generation of funeral service to the community.
