History

A History of Community Service and Trust

Fossett-Mosher Funeral home was established in 1919 when H.D. Fossett came home from World War I and opened the business. His son Max L. joined him in 1941. Max L. Fossett opened his funeral home on West Cherry Street in 1951 and moved it to the present location when he built the new home in September 1955. The family tradition spanned over 60 years until Ed and Nola Mosher purchased the funeral home in 1986.

John and Maude Morris established Morris-Leiman-Mosher Funeral Home in 1908. The original facility was what is now the Lions’ Club Building . In the 1940’s the Morris home burnt down and was rebuilt at its current location on North Davis Street. Daughter Pauline (Morris) Leiman and husband Glen took over the family business and continued the family tradition until the Moshers purchased the firm in 1984.

In April 2000, the McCulloch family purchased the funeral homes and are now currently operating them under their previous names. In 2004, the Mt. Vernon location underwent major renovation, making it handicap accessible, expanding to 225 plus seating in the chapel and adding a much needed parking lot.

Our policy has always been to treat each family with dignity and respect. We provide the finest service and strive to stay on the cutting edge while still maintaining close personal relationships with the families we serve. In turn, we hope to help the community prosper and have a sense of respect and value.

Fossett-Mosher and Morris-Leiman-Mosher Funeral Homes provide a wide variety of funeral services and merchandise. Whether you are choosing a cremation service, a traditional funeral, or pre-planning your funeral, we offer the very best.
