D & A Funeral Services, Inc., was the brainchild of Sarah Lee Davis, Founder. With the encouragement and support from the community for the need of a funeral home in Chadbourn, the funeral home was established at its present site. The funeral home was originally incorporated as D & L Funeral Home, Inc.
In 1997 D & L Funeral Service, Inc., was reestablished as D & A Funeral Service, Inc. D & A was chosen as the name of the corporation because it represented Chadbourn and surrounding communities. Judson Dukes served as the Funeral Services Director and Embalmer until he retired in 2004. Margaret H. Davis, daughter-in-law of Sarah Lee Davis, became the Manager and Funeral Director. She served as Manager and Funeral Director from 2004 until 2020. Avala Nealy, granddaughter of Sarah Lee Davis, joined the staff as a license Funeral Director in 2011. She is currently serving as General Manager and Funeral Director.
