About Wetherby Funeral Home
The Boulton-Pillsbury Funeral Home was purchased in 1895 by George Fifield and Charles Wetherby forming the Fifield-Wetherby Funeral Home. During the early 1920's, the funeral home moved to its current location, 402 Wildwood, and became solely owned by Charles K. Wetherby and hence became "The Charles K. Wetherby Funeral Home." In 1941, Mr. Wetherby passed away and the funeral home was purchased by two employees, Chester Easton and Donald B. Pelham. The gentlemen continued as partners of the home until the mid 1950's when another Pelham came into the business.
Donald's son, Dean, joined the establishment in the 1950's as Secretary/Treasurer. Donald took the position of President and Chester took the position of Vice-President. In the 1970's, Donald retired and Dean took over as President. Shortly before the passing of Donald Pelham, grandson Cris, entered the family business.
In 1990, Cris Pelham became President, Dean took over as Chairman of the Board and Chester Easton retired. Today, Cris continues to carry on the Pelham family commitment to the Wetherby Funeral Home.
