E.E. Pickle Funeral Home has served Amory and Monroe County for 87 years

AMORY – E.E. Pickle Funeral Home was started Oct. 31, 1925, by E.E. Pickle on Front Street.
The present location of the funeral home had been the home of Pickle, but when he died in 1939, it was turned into the funeral home.
In 1939, it moved to its present location of 500 3rd Ave. S., which had been the site of an old sawmill. Pickle’s home was turned into the funeral home when he died in 1939.
E.E. Pickle’s sons, Charles and Guy, worked together in the funeral business until Charles drowned.
Guy’s son, Warren, grew up working at the funeral home. He eventually went to funeral college and worked in the family business until his death in September 2010.
Warren’s son, Robert, graduated from Ole Miss in 1990 and funeral college in 1991. He worked in the family business for awhile and then ran funeral businesses in Washington and Tennessee. He returned to the family business when his father became ill in 2010 to become manager of E.E. Pickle Funeral Home.
Guy’s daughter, Julie Pickle Randle, has worked in the business and insurance part of E.E. Pickle Funeral Home for 52 years.
E.E. Pickle Funeral Home is a full-service funeral home. In addition to traditional funerals and burials, they offer memorials and cremations. They also sell monuments and help people when their pets die.
“We can help personalize a service, which makes it more meaningful to the family,” Robert said.
They also offer tribute videos for the families and have done balloon releases.
“We try to create a unique service for each family,” Robert said.

    I have nothing but good to say about this family. I still miss talking with Guy…the man was a walking history book…I loved that little grin & the twinkle in his eye when would share a story. Warren single-handedly helped our family through some very difficult losses. He had a big ol’ smile for you when he saw you somewhere. When we were building Celebration Station, he came out one day. I’d never seen him in anything but a shirt & tie. That day, he had on a T-shirt…needless to say, he had a distinct tan line where his collar normally was…I mentioned it to him & we both got a laugh out of it. I miss them both & will always be grateful to them & the rest of the family. Wishing you all the best…Keith Shaddix
