Danny Mounger is a native of McKinney, Texas. He began working at Belew Funeral Home in McKinney in 1993, where he served a twelve month apprenticeship. He received a dual license for funeral director and embalmer from Dallas Institute of Funeral Service in 1994. Danny managed several funeral homes, as well as, one combination location (funeral home and cemetery) through Stewart Enterprises. In 2004, he left Stewart to pursue his own funeral business operation in Lewisville, Texas. In 2008, Danny sold that business and he and his family moved to Nacogdoches to partner with Laird Funeral Home and Taylor Funeral Home. Continuing to uphold the tradition of family owned funeral homes, Corrigan Funeral Home joined their family of firms in 2011, Mangum Funeral Home in 2017, and most recently, Garrison Funeral Home in February 2019. Presently, he is a member of the Nacogdoches Rotary Club, the Gideon Camp of Nacogdoches, Milam Masonic Lodge #2, and he attends Westside Missionary Baptist Church.
After meeting in their church youth group, Danny and Shannon were married in September of 1999. Shannon attended the University of Texas at Arlington and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in May of 1999. She worked as a registered nurse in Plano, Texas before moving to Nacogdoches to assist Danny with running the funeral homes. They have three children who attend school in Douglass, Texas. Shannon is a member of the Fredonia Rotary Club.
Yanci is a lifetime resident of Shelby County. Graduating from Center High School in 1989, she married Ron Hendricks shortly after. The two have made a life in Huxley with their two children, Sarah and Hunter. She started working with her family at Mangum Funeral Home in 1995.
Yanci is loving her "semi-retired" life where she can spend more time with her family and enjoy being a Wawa (grandmother and aunt). She still loves being at Mangum and helping families of Shelby County during their time of need. She is a member of Ephesus Baptist Church in Shelbyville.
Charles has been with our family of firms since 2017. Native to East Texas, he's lived here all his life save for his time spent in the military, serving proudly as a member of the United States Army.

Married to his lovely wife, Cathy, for 40 years, they have two daughters, two sons-in-law, and six grandchildren. He enjoys spending time with family, fishing, and working out in his shop.
Scotty was born in East Texas. As a child, he grew up around the funeral home and that's when he knew that the funeral industry would be his ministry to help those in their deepest sorrow. He graduated from Dallas Institute-Gupton Jones College in 1966 and started his career as a funeral director and licensed embalmer.
He married Wanda Bailey and they have three beautiful children, Scott, Shannon, and Shearmon. One of his most prized awards is the Texas Funeral Directors Association of 50 Years Recognition Award presented in honor of his 50 years as a licensed professional in Texas which he received in June of 2016.

Cameron Copelin, lifelong resident of Center, attended Center High School, Panola College, and Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service.
He began his funeral service career when asked to pass out programs at a service. Over time, Cameron realized he had found a career that would allow him to make a difference and went on to pursue his license. “If you do your job well, the families you serve will tell you they could not have gotten through the death of their loved one without your assistance.” That statement by an instructor at Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service confirmed the decision that a career in the funeral service industry was the right one.
Cam has two children and enjoys spending his free time riding his motorcycle and cooking for his family and friends. He joined our family of firms in October 2019 with ten plus years of serving families in Shelby County. He looks forward to continuing to serve families in their time of loss.
