Our History

"Words cannot express the overwhelming feeling we have when we talk about our journey towards ownership. It's easy to focus on the ups and down we've experienced but what we know for sure is nothing worth having is easily gained".
                                                                                                                                             - Christie K. Moore

Mansfield Funeral Home was born out of hard work and determination from the original founders, Daryle and Melissa Perez. In 2016, after prayer and determination, the leadership of Mansfield Funeral Home shifted to Christie K. Moore and Shelia R. Hollaway but the love, dedication and care for families remain.

Christie and Shelia  started on a new path August 11, 2016 as the new owners of Mansfield Funeral Home. Since their first day, they've served families not only at the funeral home but in their homes and other locations that made their families feel comfortable.

Christie and Shelia take pride in how their families are treated not only at the time of loss. When you call Mansfield Funeral Home for help, their staff takes you by the hand and walk you down the path of education and understanding of the funeral service industry.

One year later Shelia’s son, LaMar D. Davis, committed suicide and she found herself on the grief side of the funeral industry struggling to find good customer service. Dallas Institute of Funeral Service taught Shelia how to share the technical side of grief. Life experiences have allowed Shelia to help others who are grieving the loss of a love one through warmth, care and compassion.
