November Business Highlight: Lakeover Memorial Funeral Home, Inc.


Lakeover Memorial Funeral Home, serving the Greater Jackson community since 1989, was a carefully planned and developed organization to provide families with an option for funeral services.

Belief was that as the residential scope of Jackson households migrated away from the traditional inner city climate to extended boundaries of Hinds, Rankin, and Madison counties, there should be a neighborhood funeral home to address their personal needs. In order for the facility to be accessible from all main arteries of the city, the founders decided upon a wooded area in North Jackson.  In 1987, they purchased grounds at the corner of Watkins and Beasley Road, viewable from I-220 North.  After a two-year process of feasibility studies, financing hurdles, and construction, the facility opened on February 5, 1989, at 1525 Beasley Road, as Jackson’s newest funeral home in many, many decades.

The business operates under the management of co-founders, Perry K. Paige, Sr., and Mary White Paige, who have been an integral part of the Jackson minority business community for some 46 years; Mr. Paige is a long-time Nationwide Insurance Agency. Mary White Paige is Manager and Director for Lakeover Memorial Funeral Home.  She states that “along with a loyal and dependable group of workers, the company is able to offer a real sense of personal care to families. They take great pride and honor in knowing their services actually have evolved into a ministry of helping people address the many issues of death and dying.  Mrs. Paige also makes note that “the ethical practices they employ provide for genuine concern of families as they are guided in the financial aspects of preparing for funeral expenses”. The 21 employees are well trained, courteous, attentive, and caring of each family’s individual needs.

According to Mrs. Paige, “Lakeover Memorial Funeral Home is extremely appreciative for the opportunity to serve the community.” Often, a first-time visitor expresses not knowing of their existence.  After 28 years of service, Mrs. Paige said “it is hoped that our visibility is distinct and our name a household word”.  In an effort to give back to the community, the company does provide donations and contributions to various organizations, including educational, religious, civic and social concerns.

The Paiges are not only proud to be identified as the City of Jackson’s Business Highlight for November 2016, but they are also proud to own a business and reside in Jackson.
