Peet Mortuary

The Lusk Herald, March 17, 1938


George Earl Peet of the Peet Mortuary this week started work on the erection of a modern funeral chapel on the north side of his present funeral home, next to the Armory, which will be a distinct improvement to his already modern mortuary.

The chapel will be 30 by 42 feet, in addition to a 16-foot family and music room. A basement 30 by 46 feet will be used for a casket display room, and the new chapel will be modern in every particular. Excavation for the basement was started the first of the week. The new building will face the south and will be of ornamental tile construction. The grounds will also be landscaped and the new chapel will blend in with the present mortuary building, with a lawn in between. Oscar Bostrom will have charge of the construction work.
