Our History

The late James G. "Jimmy" Williamson, Sr., founded and opened Williamson & Sons Funeral Home in the Soddy area of Soddy-Daisy in 1950. His family's residence was in the upstairs of the building, while the downstairs served as the funeral home. His two sons, "Chuck" and "Gabby", literally grew up in the business. Their funeral home was one of the first locations in Soddy to have a telephone. People would come to the funeral home to call their relatives, and Army and Navy veterans would call the funeral home to let their families know when and where to pick them up as they returned home from service. Mr. Williamson also had an ambulance service for many years starting in the 1950s up until the 1970s and helped a lot of people through that service. The funeral home was and still is a lot more than just a funeral home. It serves as a community center as well. Even today, people come by to send or receive a fax, to talk and share information, to have a cup of coffee or just visit. Incidentally, the funeral home has the same phone number today.

Jimmy's widow, Betty Coulter Williamson, is the granddaughter of the late R.J. Coulter who established the R. J. Coulter Funeral Home in 1898 in Dayton and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Jimmy started out working for Mr. Coulter in the 1940's. In 1958, Mr. Williamson relocated Williamson & Sons Funeral Home to the Mile Straight part of Soddy-Daisy, and we have been here ever since. Betty is still active in the community and in her church, and she visits residents and friends in local nursing homes whenever she can. Jimmy's two sons, Chuck and Gabby Williamson, have continued the family tradition and are still active in the business and looking forward to serving families in the future. There are actually five members of the Williamson family that are currently active in the business. The entire family, along with other dedicated personnel, is highly committed to serving the public with outstanding integrity and compassion.

Chuck Williamson states. "I have either lived in the funeral home or within walking distance from it all my life. The same holds true for my brother, Gabby. Being in the funeral home business is more than just a job to us; it is part of our lives and always has been. Our father taught us to treat people like we would want to be treated, with dignity and respect."
