Bossuot-Lundy Funeral Home, Inc. is the premiere independently owned funeral and cremation service provider in the North Country.
The current Bossuot-Lundy Funeral Home, Inc. is a direct business descendant of the Joseph Weekes & Son hardware firm of Harrisville founded in the 1880s. Around 1920, the funeral directing department was sold to Harrisville businessman Ray F. Dunlop. In 1936, Mr. Dunlop and Natural Bridge funeral director Floyd J. Ulmann founded the Ulmann & Dunlop Home for Funerals in Carthage. In the late 1930s, Mr. Dunlop sold his interest to DeAlton F. Bossuot and after Mr. Ulmann's death in 1952, Ulmann & Bossuot was incorporated as the Bossuot Funeral Home, Inc.
Samuel P. Lundy had purchased the Dunlop funeral business in Harrisville and renamed it the Lundy Funeral Home. In 1974, Mr. Lundy purchased the Bossuot Funeral Home, Inc. in Carthage, merged the two, and renamed the business the Bossuot-Lundy Funeral Home, Inc.
In 1995, Cullen D. Lundy, became a Licensed Funeral Director and returned to Carthage, eventually purchasing the business in January of 2000. Cullen continues to operate the funeral businesses, along with Lundy Services Medical Transportation, founded in 1997. In 2005, Nicole M. LaRue, an Ogdensburg native, served her residency here and continued her employment as a Licensed Funeral Director and currently acts as our lead pre-need counselor.
We currently serve the area with two locations. Our Funeral Home in Copenhagen is located on Washington St., behind the Fire Department and our main office is located at 500 State Street, Carthage.
The Bossuot-Lundy Funeral Home in Carthage is the only one in the area to offer a chapel on the premises for services, as well as two large viewing rooms for calling hours. The preparation area has been redesigned, incorporating the latest in mortuary and safety equipment and we offer the most modern fleet of funeral vehicles, including a new hearse and limousine.
In partnership with the Aurora Casket Company, the largest family owned casket manufacturer in the United States, we have updated our arrangements office with the latest exclusive technology available. The Family Advisor System not only assists the arranger in taking the feelings of insecurity out of funeral arrangements, but it also acts as a tool that helps families make educated decisions.
In April, 2008, the Scherer Funeral Home at 1 Bridge St., West Carthage was purchased from longtime area Funeral Director, William J. Scherer. The business continues to operate at 500 State St., Carthage.
