Based on Governor's Executive Order 176
The Covid-19 Pandemic continues to affect our community, the families we serve, our personal families and our employees. Our funeral home’s highest priority remains the safety of these people. Governor Cooper’s latest Executive Order begins to re-open some businesses but has little effect on how we must operate in these trying times.
We must require the wearing of masks while inside our funeral home.
We must enforce six (6) foot social distancing.
We will encourage hand washing or the use of disinfectant upon entering and leaving our facility.
The actual funeral service is exempt, but prudent safety measures dictate we adhere to the above listed safety measures; therefore, any funeral services conducted within our facility will be limited to a maximum of fifty (50) persons. This includes the total of family members and guests. This number may be lowered to maintain proper social distancing.
Any activities prior to or following the funeral service are not exempt and must adhere to the mandated maximum of 10 per room people inside, or 50 outside. This includes visitations, receptions, and social gatherings. We will continue to offer extended hours for individual to come by the funeral home to pay condolences.
By working together, we can mitigate the impact this virus may have on our community and on our families.

Funeral services in Troy were conducted by Auley O. Wooley of the Dixie Furniture Company until August 1925 when the business was sold to Troy Furniture Company. The funeral business was conducted from the furniture store, and E.T. Reynolds became manager in October, 1926. Three years later he took a leave of absence to attend Worsham College of Embalming in Chicago. After graduation he return home and was Montgomery County’s first licensed embalmer.
In 1940 the funeral business was separated from the furniture and moved to its present location on North Main Street. Mont L. Reynolds joined the staff in 1945 and remained until his death 1967. In 1950 Mr. and Mrs. John Riley Beaman moved into the apartment upstairs at the funeral home and served as host and hostess for eighteen years.
Pugh Funeral Home, Inc. purchased the funeral home from the Reynold’s family in January 1968. William H. Johnson, was the first manager and remained until his retirement in the early 1980’s. William H. “Bill” Kearns became manager until his retirement in 2008, Sherrill Bumgarner served until 2016. Dean Shelton currently is the manager.
Starting in 2010 the building underwent eighteen months of major renovations which turned it into the modern facility we see today.
The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect and than others seem to think. Read More
