John Hargis of Wann Funeral Home in St. Elmo has announced the sale of his funeral home and business to Cade and Shawn Williamson, of Legacy Funeral Home and Cremation Center. 

“Cade and Shawn have been working closely with me at Wann's for some time now, and I’m happy and proud to have them take over the business. It was important for me to sell the funeral home to someone in the community who will continue our tradition of offering compassionate, personalized services,” said Mr. Hargis.

Mr. Hargis, who has been in the funeral industry for 47 years, purchased Wann Funeral Home in 1972 from Jimmy Wann. The funeral home has a lengthy history of serving the most distinguished residents of St. Elmo, Lookout Mountain and the surrounding areas.

“Our clients can be assured that nothing will change under the new ownership,” said Mr. Hargis. “I plan to continue working closely with Cade, Shawn and the families we serve.”

Mr. Williamson said, “We are thrilled to be able to continue the legacy of Wann Funeral Home and I look forward to providing every family with the same comforting experience that John has offered so many families over the years. I’m especially pleased he will continue working with us.”

“We will be remodeling and renovating. Balancing substance with style, the elegant accommodations of our funeral home will create a sophisticated yet comforting atmosphere for the families we serve,” said Ms. Williamson.

Cade and Shawn Williamson are both licensed funeral directors and embalmers. They are also the owners of Legacy Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Soddy Daisy where they have an on-site crematory. 

Founded in 1902, Wann Funeral Home is the oldest, continually operating funeral home in Chattanooga. The funeral home offers a complete range of funeral, cremation and pre-planned services.

I sure wish there was some way that Hamilton Place and ... (click for more)
