ABOUT US
 

In the early years of Alpine, as in most frontier communities, everyone in the community took part and aided in conducting funerals.

In the early part of the twentieth century Mr. Jim Walker became the first authorized undertaker in the community. In 1907 C. W. Livingston, who was a certified embalmer in Marfa, Texas, established a branch in Alpine with J.L. Davis as manager. In 1909 W.G. Young, Mr. Livingston’s partner, who also lived in Marfa, Texas, was listed as an associate in the Alpine branch of the undertaking business.

Mr. C.W. Livingston died in 1924, and at that time his son, Charles Livingston, took charge of the Alpine branch of the Livingston Undertaking Company. Charles Livingston moved the undertaking business into the large two-story building on the corner north of the courthouse in 1929. In the years that followed, Mr. Livingston gradually remodeled and refurnished the building into a modern, well-equipped funeral home. The Livingston Undertaking Company served Alpine, Marathon and Sanderson for many years.

Along with his wife, Jo Ella, he operated the business until it was sold to Don Geeslin in August of 1961.

In late 2007 and early 2008, the funeral home was again remodeled and updated and continues to be one of the best equipped funeral homes in the western part of Texas under the name of Alpine Memorial Funeral Home.
