About Brown Funeral Home

Brown Funeral Home is locally owned and operated. The funeral home was founded in September of 1972 by Robert M. and Mary C. Brown. Our location at 306 College Street in Elizabethtown, Kentucky is the original location. We have made many changes on the inside and outside, but the tradition stays the same.

After 43 years, Bob and Cathy Brown stepped down as the owners and the second generation of Brown's, Tommy Brown and Lora Brown Dixon took over. They continue with the same foundation that the funeral home was founded on.

Robert M. Brown and Mary C. Brown, the founders of Brown Funeral Home continue their involvement in the funeral home on an as needed basis. Bob continues to work most funerals even in his retirement. It is in his blood and he always has and always will have the compassion for the business.
