L ouise Gephart grew up to marry Flavian J. "Bud" White. They lived in the same house in downtown Lakeville for many years. Our grandfather worked hard to build his reputation as a compassionate man that believed in hard work and honesty.
He operated the funeral home out of a storefront in downtown Lakeville until he and his son, James F., moved the funeral home out to the "Country" in its present location on Highway 50.
