HISTORY OF THE FOSTER/ REASONER FUNERAL HOME
Courtesy of Brooke County Genealogy Society


The FOSTER FUNERAL HOME was established in 1901 by Frank E. FOSTER
and his wife CAROLYN MC CUSKEY. They had a daughter MARGARET FOSTER who
married RICHARD T. McCREARY. From 1932 to 1942 the McCreary's were the
owners of Foster Funeral Home. At this time, WIRT DAVIS did the embalming.

The business was then sold to CARLYLE and MARGIE JOHNSON, who continued
to use the name Foster Funeral Home. The Johnson's were the owners from 1942
to 1955.

The business was then sold to PAUL CARTE who operated still under the
name of Foster Funeral Home, from 1955 to 1978.

On Oct 1, 1978 the business was sold to DAN REASNER who changed the
name to REASNER'S Funeral Home. He remains the owner at this time (1996).
