I presume that J. Young might have been the father of George Young who operated Young’s Funeral Home when I was a boy in Lanark. This old photo looks like the modern day store front still at this site.

In days gone by George Young sold good quality furniture in this store on George St. When my Dad returned from overseas in WWII he went to George and bought everything he could afford to set up house for my Mom. I think he said that George, who was a very kind man, even threw in a free Marconi radio as a thank you.

Linda GemmillGeorge Young has a furniture store as well as a funeral home. This is the furniture location on George St just north of the bridge on left

Judy ArnottGeorge was an amazing man

Barry BatesWhat’s the funeral home back up in past the United Church used for now? (storage)

Michele ScanlanBarry Bates yes there have been countless people that were taken care of at Young’s including many of my family. It is a shame it is no longer used.

Judy ArnottEveryone from the old Lanark TWS was waked st Youngs. They were family, George, Wilson Creighton and Alex Headrick

Michele ScanlanGeorge Young was a very giving man. I saved his planing mill (I think that’s what it was ) from burning and he told me to go and get what ever I needed for the winter from Don Drysdales store. A new pair of boots kept my feet warm that winter

Wanda LabelleEric bought all his furniture there in 67. George let him pay off a little at a time. He still has all the bills from that time

Emily DesjardinsGeorge let me make payments on a kitchen table set l purchased for my Mom and Dads twenty fifth wedding anniversary and delivered it for me.l was so happy and they were really surprised

Rose MarieMy mother-in-law, Barbara Closs, worked as a live-in house keeper for George and Bessie Young in Lanark in the 40’s (her first job as a teenager). Barbara bought their original bedroom set while she lived with them. We still have this beautiful 4 piece set which is made of black walnut.

True story… Young’s Funeral business in downtown Lanark–Terence Miller said:There was a saying in the valley when a funeral director was spotted downtown, ” look alive lads here comes the undertaker”

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
