History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

From the very beginning, Labby Memorial had a vision to provide the families of Beauregard and Vernon Parishes with a funeral home that was founded on trust, honesty and compassion. Over the years a great number of families have trusted us to do just that, and we are still bound by that same mission today. Our staff is made up of a team with servant hearts who strive to stand on trust, honesty and compassion, while understanding that each family is unique and providing dignified funeral services to every family that we are honored to serve.
