About West & Parrish & Pedigo

Our History
Our funeral home is proud to be family owned and operated.

Ed West and son, Harold, came to Spencer, Indiana in 1919 from Cloverdale, Indiana and established a furniture store and funeral business on the south side of the Spencer square.

In 1929, they moved to the present location at 105 North Montgomery Street. Ed West passed away in 1949 and Harold in 1962. Arthur Parrish joined the firm in 1938, and Steve Parrish in 1964. Steve Pedigo joined the staff in 1977, just before Arthur Parrish passed away that same year.  Patrick Day joined the staff in 2007.

Our funeral home would not be where it is today if not for the women who supported, and worked alongside those men mentioned above: Doll West (wife of Harold West), Ella Mae Parrish (wife of Arthur Parrish), Alice Parrish (wife of Steve Parrish), and Becky Pedigo (wife of Steve Pedigo).

Since our humble beginnings over 90 years ago, the funeral home has striven to offer a professional and classy approach in a dignified and personal manner. Our service is conducted in a manner befitting the tribute that you and your family wish to bestow. We have evolved from a furniture store/funeral home to a place of compassion and refuge, where you can take the first steps of grief, and healing.
