Trusted Funeral Provider
Louisiana Governor John Bell Edwards has announced that Funeral Homes in Louisiana can resume conducting funeral services as long as there is no more than 25% of the building’s occupancy in attendance. Therefore, Williams Funeral Home has adopted the following provisions to ensure public safety. We ask that you please stay home if you are sick, have a temperature over 99, experiencing a cough or any symptoms of Covid-19, if you are high risk, elderly, or have a compromised immune system. If you are at higher risk but are immediate family, we ask that you wear a mask and take extreme caution. We have blocked off every other pew in the chapel to ensure social distancing is practiced. Please do not congregate in the foyer area, however if you would like to step outside to socialize we ask that you practice social distancing however as of now there is no limit for outside so you are welcome to visit on the premises. We will have hand sanitizer placed at the entrance of the funeral home and in the restrooms and we do ask that you utilize those when entering. At this time no outside food or drinks will be allowed to be brought into the building. We encourage everyone to wear a mask. The governor has stated that there can be unlimited attendees at an outside service gathering but please keep a safe distance between families at a graveside service. Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these trying times and we will continue to serve our community to the highest standard of care.

How Our Established Funeral Home Started
As a teenager, Danny T. Williams, Sr. applied for a summer job at the old Poole Funeral Home in Slidell, LA, which turned into a dream of becoming a licensed funeral director/embalmer. After graduating from Slidell High School and completing a 4-year stint in the U.S. Navy, he attended Commonwealth College of Mortuary Science in Houston, TX and returned to Slidell, LA where he continued to work as an undertaker. In 1986, he and his wife, Adele, were given an opportunity to purchase a piece of land in Hickory, LA.
Giving Quality Funeral Services Since 1987
After much prayer, they decided to build the Williams Funeral Home in Hickory, LA as a promise kept to the Pearl River, LA community, which came true in February of 1987 when the doors opened. He also opened the cemetery on grounds known as, Hickory Memorial Gardens Cemetery. Mr. Danny ran the business until he was no longer able to due to illness. His daughter, also a graduate of Commonwealth, stepped up and began running the funeral home business, while Adele became Mr. Danny’s caregiver. After his death in 2011, his wife, daughter, and caring staff maintained the quality of service he has instilled since the beginning of our funeral home.
