The Lunn family has been serving the North Texas area since 1913. That tradition continues today at Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home in Wichita Falls. Through the years, the Lunn family has always endeavored to treat our families with the utmost care, compassion, and respect. Those we serve, come to us in their greatest time of need, and we always try to live up to the trust placed in us. Will Z. Lunn, of Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home and his nephew Cuatro Lunn, represent the fourth and fifth generations of funeral service professionals in our family. The late Raymond N. Lunn’s grandfather, W.N. Lunn, began the first Lunn's Funeral Home in Olney, Texas. Ray's father, Raymond Lunn, joined his father in the funeral business in 1933. Later, Ray's brother Don also joined his father in the business in the early 1960s. Ray's grandfather was a partner with the Merkel-Lunn Funeral Home in 1920, at 10th and Austin in Wichita Falls; however, in 1924, he sold his interest and continued operating the original Lunn's location in Olney and another funeral home in Archer City. In 1986, Ray and his wife Valine began operation of Lunn’s Colonial Funeral Home in Wichita Falls. Since then the Lunn family has been proud to serve Wichita Falls once again. In 2013, the family celebrated 100 years of service to the larger North Texas area. Until his death in 2014, Ray Lunn had been a licensed funeral director since 1966. His son, Will, followed in his footsteps. Now the fifth generation Cuatro Lunn, and grandson-in-law Chase Richardson, have joined the business as well. Even with Ray’s passing in 2014, his wife Valine also continues to play a large role in the funeral home’s operation.
Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home is now a part of a company that operates the original Lunn's Funeral Home in Olney, Texas, the Falls Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Wichita Falls and Seymour Memorial Funeral Home in Seymour, Texas. Early on, the Lunn family had instilled in the subsequent Lunn generations and its employees, a family philosophy of dignity, honor, and respect in funeral service. Will Lunn is now actively involved in the day to day operation of the four funeral homes, as well as in the strategic planning for the future of the family-owned business. Our professional and caring staff is always available to assist with guidance and support, whether it is answering questions, handling funeral services for a loved one, prearranging personal services, or simply speaking with someone concerning issues you've always wondered about, but didn't feel comfortable asking. At Lunn's Colonial Funeral Home, we never forget that we are here to serve you.
