Dear Shumate-Faulk Family,
Thank You for all your help during our loss & providing the best care for our loved one. You all are #1 and very compassionate & caring.

February 20, 2024

Everyone was very helpful, compassionate, and professional. Mr Faulk was very accommodating and made sure that the service was carried out just as we planned. Shumate-Faulk has served my family numerous times and I would recommend them to anyone who has to make final arrangements for a loved one. Thank you for all that you do.

I had a very professional experience with shumate Faulk. Suzanne was personable and took her cue when to have a sense of humor and that was very helpful. They did have an issue with their sound system and they went right out and bought another one and I would trust them again. Also Pastor Willoughby did a great job and my dad really looked good.

Whether you are preplanning for yourself or choosing for a loved one, a casket selection is a very personal decision and an expression of your feelings. A casket that reflects the personality and taste of your loved one can be your final tribute to their life. Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home understands these needs and offers a wide variety of caskets that can help you make your decision.

Metal caskets

including those made from bronze, copper, stainless steel and steel -- are known for their unique finishes. Bronze and copper are among the most durable and beautiful of metals; both are naturally non-rusting. Stainless and carbon steel caskets come in a variety of grades, gauges, styles and finishes.

Hardwood caskets

nclude a variety of species: mahogany, walnut, cherry, maple, oak, pecan, poplar, and pine. These caskets are the choice of families who appreciate and cherish the qualities of natural wood. The warmth, beauty and personality it brings to fine furniture ideally suited it for the construction of quality caskets.

When budget is a challenge, cloth covered caskets are especially appropriate because they meet the special needs of some families.

Vaults and Urns


A burial vault is designed to protect the casket from the weight of the earth and heavy cemetery maintenance equipment as it passes over the grave during routine maintenance. This heavy equipment can put great pressure and weight on graves, causing maintenance problems and endangering the appearance of the grave and cemetery itself. With this in mind, selecting a quality burial vault is not only practical but essential.

Selecting a Burial Vault

The Value of a Committal Service


We extend our concerns to families when they lose a loved one. We have experienced first hand the loss of a family member, true friend or companion. We understand the great emptiness and grief by those who have had to say good-bye. Remember your loved ones in a personal way with a beautiful, loving memorial. A beautiful urn can keep the memories of our loved ones alive and with us forever.
