COVINGTON — Alex and Stacey Moore of Covington are pleased to announce their recent purchase of Jackson-Sarver Funeral Home in Covington, and its subsequent renaming to Moore Funeral Home.
“It has always been a goal and dream of mine to own a funeral home,” Alex said. “Having the opportunity to do that here in our hometown is extra special for Stacey and me. We feel very blessed to be able to begin this venture together.”
Alex and Stacey both grew up outside of Covington, graduated from Covington High, and attended Edison State Community College. Alex, the son of Sherry Moore of Covington and the late Kent Moore, went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science. He has been a licensed funeral director for 11 years, and has worked as a funeral director in Miami County for the past 10 years, seven of those in Piqua.
Stacey, whose parents are Tom and Joyce Grilliot of Covington, has worked primarily in customer service. She began putting her customer service skills to work by assisting at funeral services over a year ago.
With the change in ownership, Moore Funeral Home has assumed the responsibility to execute all the prearranged funeral plans made in Covington under Pearson-Jackson or Jackson-Sarver ownership.
“We have notified all our preneed families of this change, to assure them that their preferences will still be carried out exactly as planned,” Alex stated. “All prepaid funds are still safely in trust with a third party, such as an insurance or trust company, according to the laws of the state of Ohio. And any pricing guarantees made under previous ownership remain in place with us.”
“Alex and I are very excited to bring Covington hometown ownership back to this funeral home. We are right here at home in this community, and we feel very honored to have this opportunity,” Stacey added. “And we’ll be making our home here above the funeral home, so stop by and say hello!”
Moore Funeral Home is a family-owned and operated funeral home serving families in Miami, Darke, and Shelby counties, and is located at 10 S. High St. in downtown Covington.
