In 1918, Edward C. Young, Sr. and his wife
Adelheit, started what is now Young and Sons Funeral Home. A company that
has steadily grown and continues its growth and service to Perry County.
Edward's four sons later joined him in the
business: Wally in 1933; Earl in 1935; James in 1945; and Edward C. Jr.
in 1954. Their wives also became affiliated with the business. Young and
Sons now continues with its third generation of Youngs plus other

director, has been with the firm since 1972. Michael Sutterer, an

On behalf of myself and my staff at Young and
Sons, we are very proud to carry on the tradition that my grandparents,
parents, uncles, aunts and brother started. It is truly an honor to
serve our friends and families of Perry County.
