J.M. White Funeral Home was established in 1967 as Waite and White Funeral Home in Henderson, North Carolina. Jerry M. White, Sr. became the sole owner of the business in 1971 and the name was changed. After his death, the business continued to serve families in the area under the direction of Mr. J. Hillman Dickerson. Mr. Dickerson was supported by a loyal and professional staff. With the help of that staff, Jerry’s wife Betty gradually took over as manager of the funeral home, eventually becoming a funeral director herself. Following in their father’s tradition of dignified service, Mr. and Mrs. White’s sons came into the business after gaining their education in funeral service. J.M. White Funeral Home continues to serve its clients with dignity, compassion and professionalism by Mr. White’s family long after he opened the business decades ago.
