What makes a House a Home

“Our People make the difference.”

You’ve heard the question, “What makes a House a Home?” A house is only the shell, but a home is made up of what’s inside. When speaking of Funeral Homes, it is much the same.

A Funeral Home is generally made up of 4 walls and a roof, but what makes Mayes Ward-Dobbins unique is the people inside. Funeral Directors and Funeral Home employees typically are given a stereotype of being dark, reserved, money hungry, and not being personable, amongst many other characteristics. Our people are genuine and real. Our Directors, as well as other team members, have lived in the Cobb County area for decades. They are involved in the community through the Funeral Home and in their personal lives. Some interests of our team include, reading, hiking, cooking, spending time with family, gardening, loving on their pets, golfing, watching sporting events, and helping others. We bring all of these interests together and create a great team that is like family, creating the Mayes Ward-Dobbins Family.

Many times, people are scared to walk into a Funeral Home, but here at Mayes Ward-Dobbins we have people within the community who will come in just to sit and chat with us. Our team carries a genuine and neighborly personality. We enjoy spending time getting to know those in our community. There are a few people that have created a trusting and personal relationship with some of our team and they rely on them to help them with some of their personal matters. That is the type of people we have serving our community and the type of relationships we build with our families. We are honest, genuine, real people.

Our people are what make us a Funeral “Home”; not the walls of the building.
