Unfortunately I had to bury my brother 3 years ago with Peoples funeral home and I lost my mother in February of 2022. Both results were satisfactory from all family members. I recommend to family and friends Peoples funeral home. Ms Ladeen runs a tight ship, on time very professional and great service most of all. Please give Peoples funeral home your business, you won’t be disappointed, trust me on that. Thank you so much to Ms Ladeen and her staff.

If you want the best even in the middle of a pandemic, Peoples Funeral Home of Whiteville is the only choice. Peoples has served our family since 1992 and we have never been disappointed in the courteous and professional services we have received.
My mother, the late Estelle Mclean Dixon did not believe there was any funeral home better than Peoples and no one could provide a better service and she was right. My brother Ryan answered the Masters call unexpectedly in August. There was never a question as to who would be providing services for him. His services went smoothly and professionally from the walk through viewing and ending with the graveside service. I went through some struggles with the life insurance company, but LaDeen was with me every step of the way assisting me in any way possible.
Peoples will continue to be my first choice for any services needed in the future.

My family and I would like to thank the staff of People's Funeral Home for the kind, professional, and courtesy service rendered to us during this time. The atmosphere was warm we all felt the consensus of genuine interest. Again, Ladeen and staff, we thank you and God bless you all.

I would like to take this time to send a special THANK YOU to Ms LaDeen and her staff at Peoples Funeral Home. Due to the current pandemic many businesses have lost their touch of sensitivity and courtesy regarding families and their needs. However, Peoples Funeral Home was not only understanding and sensitive, but also professional and courteous. They provided impeccable service even during this time. Our family appreciates the warm and caring staff which made this process a little easier. I know my dad, Jeremiah Maxfield, would be proud we chose Peoples to lay him to rest. From the time I contacted this funeral home to the very end of the burial, I experienced the best service ever! I highly recommend this funeral home for your loved ones.

The Bowen~ Hester families are well pleased with the final services of our loved one, Herbert Hester. We extend our appreciation and gratitude for your professional services. The intentional servant leader, Chief Operating Officer LaDeen Powell is trustworthy, straight forward, and professional. People’s Funeral Home of Whiteville provided good counsel, competitive prices, and excellent services during a difficult time. The staff is Christlike, respectful, friendly, compassionate, kind, and professional from the start to finish. It take a lifetime to build a business and can be destroyed in moments. Our family will continue to be supportive of this family owned funeral home. “Peoples” of Whiteville makes a tremendous difference in our multicultural communities in such a difficult time. I highly recommend “Peoples” for all final services.

LaDeen buried my great-grandmother, Doretha Fields, back in 2003. They came all the way to Leland, NC to pick us up and took us all the way to Whiteville for the service. At no time did LaDeen utter a word about being too far. She simply said, "We will take care of you; just be there." I thank God for her and her staff. The lady driver of the limo was very attentive and consoled us the entire time. Thank you Peoples Funeral Home.
