The Kentucky Association of Morticians Inc. has had the pleasure of seeing three of our own hold the office of President of the National Association. They were G.W. Saffell, Shelbyville, KY; John W. Delaney, Covington, KY and Danny Percell, Elizabethtown, KY.

A Legacy of Leadership

The Kentucky Association of Morticians, Inc. was formed and organized in a day when African American people were looked upon as second class citizens. In spite of that those men and women stood together proving then that “In Union There Is Strength”.

We Not Only Survived, We Continued to Thrive

Our Association has survived. There have been obstacles but we withstood them; Trials, we overcome them: And sometimes even setbacks but we outlasted them.

The Legacy Continues
