J im Fohn began his career in the funeral business in 1965, in 1977 Jim and Janice opened their first funeral home in Kirksville, MO.
They sold that location in 1988, in 1990 they moved to Cassville Mo. and purchased the Axley Funeral home changing the name to Fohn Funeral Home and continuing a tradition that was over 60 years old.
Jim and Janice purchased the Williamson Funeral Home in 1995 adding funeral homes in Wheaton and Shell Knob, Mo.
In 2004 The Williamson Funeral home was remodeled and enlarged and became the Fohn Funeral Home as the original location was moved to this facility and the old property was sold to the Methodist Church.
Today Jim and Janice as well as their staff continue to serve the Cassville, Wheaton and Shell Knob communities as well as all of Barry County.
We offer a traditional service as well as services tailored to fit the needs of the public.
Many of our families are from somewhere else and moved to the area as a retirement location, we can assist these families with a service both here in their new hometown or back home where they came from.
