Wallace Thompson Funeral Home
119 Rarden Road
Peebles, OH 45660

In 1991, Steve Thompson and Bob Wallace had the opportunity to purchase the Lafferty Funeral Home, located at 136 N. Main Street in Peebles, from Richard and Joyce Lafferty. Richard is a fourth generation funeral director from the descendents that founded the Lafferty Funeral Home, West Union in the early 1800's.

Steve and Bob operated the Lafferty-Wallace-Thompson Funeral Home at that location until 1996, when Bob and Sharon Brooke of the Brooke Funeral Home, located at 119 Rarden Road in Peebles, decided to retire. An agreement was made whereby Steve and Bob purchased the Brooke business and a trade was made of the properties, whereupon the Brooke-Lafferty-Wallace-Thompson Funeral Home was established.

The 119 Rarden Road location has a history dating back to 1904 when John R. Thomas opened a funeral home on Main Street in Peebles. In 1934 Cecil Trefz purchased the business from John R. Thomas and moved it to the present location.

Cecil Trefz operated the business until 1951 when he sold an interest to George Chapman, who sold to Charles Thompson in 1952. Charlie operated the Trefz Funeral Home, as it was known until 1972 when Charlie retired and sold the business to Tom Burke. Tom Burke operated the Burke Funeral Home until 1976, when he sold it to Bob Brooke.
