Our History-Lathrop

In the spring of 1961 Morris Bailey purchased the firm from DeMoss Crunk. Morris and his wife Joy ran the funeral home until 1979 when they moved to Polo. At that time Morris's son Mark took over the management of the Lathrop funeral home. After the death of Morris in 1994, his son Mark and his stepmother Mary Lou Bailey continued to operate the funeral home until 2002 when it was purchased by the Meierhoffer family based in Saint Joseph, Missouri. In 2013, seeing a need for a locally owned family oriented funeral home, Kyle Stith approached the Meierhoffer family about purchasing the funeral home in Lathrop. In the fall of 2015, the name was changed to Stith Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services. The funeral homes have been locally owned and operated by Kyle Stith ever since. Kyle is a life-long resident of the area and committed to serving families in time of need. Kyle's wife, Erin joined the business January 1st, 2017.  Kyle and Erin work side by side to ensure every family receives the service and dedication they deserve.
