The Lyons Funeral Home was founded by William H. Lyons, known locally as “Billy,” a respected businessman in Thomaston since the age of 14 when he started the Lyons Tea company. He sold tea, coffee, spices, extracts, baking soda and cocoa door-to-door out of a horse drawn wagon in Thomaston and the surrounding communities.
In 1901, he entered a partnership with Thomas H. Brown. Their business included the sale of tea, coffee and ice cream. Brown was also a mortician and Lyons joined him in that, too, thus starting his career in the funeral business.
You are welcome to call us any time of the day, any day of the week, for immediate assistance. Or, visit our funeral home in person at your convenience.
