Our History

Wright's Funeral Parlor was established on July 2000 by Cynthia D. Wright and Bobby J. Wright. The business was purchased from Charles Sizemore of Sizemore Funeral Home. Cynthia was interested in the funeral business since the 1990's due to the death of her grandmother. 

After serving in the US Navy, Cynthia was given the chance to attend a college of her choice. She attended Schreiner University in Kerrville for business after a few years decided to explore the mortuary science field. Cynthia was accepted into the mortuary science department of San Antonio College and graduated in 1997. After graduating, she took an internship with Sizemore Funeral Home, Kerrville. 

Charles made Cynthia an offer to purchase the funeral home, she accepted. The funeral home became family owned and operated by Cynthia and her father Bobby Wright. 

The funeral home is honored to serve the Hill Country for over a decade. We are proud to be truly family owned and operated; Cynthia Wright, Melissa & Victor Hernandez, Robert Puckett and Nicholas Wright. Our family takes proud in putting families first and making the services we offer affordable and personal to fit everyone's need.
