The Williamson name became associated with funeral service in the late 1800's in Arenzville, Illinois when C.E. Williamson, a local purveyor of gas stoves, expanded his business to include furniture and undertaking. After briefly moving his business to Beardstown, Williamson relocated to Jacksonville in 1911 and joined A.G. Cody in opening a funeral home on the north side of East State Street, just off the downtown. This partnership dissolved in 1923, and in 1925 the Williamson Family moved to 210 West College Avenue. The business remained in operation at that location until the completion of construction on the new location at 1405 Lincoln Avenue in 1998.

Our Pittsfield location was opened in 1976 as Plattner Funeral Home. Several years later, in 1980, it was purchased by 3rd generation Director, Mike Lummis. Mike had followed in the footstep of his grandpa (G. B. Lummis, 1914 Mortuary School graduate), and his father John B. Lummis (1951 graduate). Mike had already been in Pike County having purchased the Ward Funeral Home in Pleasant Hill in 1974 and the Gill Funeral Home In Barry. Ill health forced Mike to retire from the business and in 1993, Terry Airsman bought what is now the Airsman-Hires Funeral Home. Currently, 4th generation Director, J. Scott Lummis, is just one of the directors who continues to serve the families of Pike County in their time of need.
