danks 300BEAVER DAM, Ky. (2/13/18) — “The more things change, the more they stay the same,” might be true of a local funeral home with a rich tradition along with modern updates.
 
William L. Danks Funeral Home in Beaver Dam has been family owned since “Bill” Danks and wife, Ima, purchased it from Erwin and Annabelle Casebier in April 1966. Since that time, the Danks have added son, Jeffrey Danks, as co-owner.
 
“We are family and locally owned and operated,” said Lauren Danks Allen, business manager. “We have lived in and served this community for over 50 years, with three generations of Danks family members committed to caring for families during their most difficult times.”
 
Allen said while the business will evolve, it will maintain its longstanding reputation of putting families first.
 
“We will continue to provide care and compassion for the families of Ohio County with genuine respect and dignity on a personal level,” she said. “Not because this is a business --- but because it is our way of life. We have had roots in this community for generations and will continue to provide only the best to the families that we serve and the community that we call home.”
 
Staff members include William L. “Bill” Danks, president, licensed embalmer and funeral director; Ima S. Danks, treasurer and licensed funeral director; Jeffrey Danks, secretary, licensed embalmer and funeral director; Lauren Danks Allen, vice-president, licensed embalmer and funeral director; Colten Allen, funeral director and embalmer apprentice; and, Jamie Renfrow Maiden, licensed embalmer and funeral director.
 
The funeral home’s six employees have a combined 175 years of funeral service experience. The staff’s attention to detail and standards of service isn’t going to change even if the funeral home were to expand, said Allen.
 
“The values that were established in 1966 continue to prevail today, providing professional and compassionate service to families through three generations of our own family,” she said. “We continue to be deeply committed to providing only the best to the families that call on us. We want to provide personalized services tailored to a family’s wants and needs. Our goal is to make them feel at home when they walk through our doors, and to make them feel like family when they walk out.”
 
The funeral home located at 222 North Lafayette Street in Beaver Dam is available year round, seven days a week, 24 hours a day and available by calling 270-274-7124.
