Several undertakers served Bolivar over the years. Most folks remember F.P. McDowell, John Vann, Featherson, and Ed Speidel Funeral Home. When Mr. Speidel retired he sold the funeral home to Paul McCracken. The McCracken Funeral home on Market Street was closed for good in 2012 as only a few funerals occured each year. Prior to the building of this funeral home we had a funeral parlor in the current Lamantia Market known as the Vann Funeral Parlor. The Funeral Home was purchased by the "Beacon Independent Church" in 2017.
