For more than 165 years, the family-owned and operated Lee Funeral Homes has provided caring, dignified service to families in need. During those years, six generations of Lee family have prided themselves on this dependable and distinctive service. Today, that service is offered by C. William Lee, III., Katherine Lee Taylor, Michael W. Lee and Lisa M. MountsĀ and the entire staff of the Lee Funeral Homes. Orginially, the J.

William Lee Sons Company had the distinct privilege of serving the William McKinley family, our country’s 34th President of the United States.
