We would be privileged to serve your family when the need arises. History Established in 1946 In May of 1946, E. Paul and Hazel Amos opened their family business in Shawnee, Kansas. In 1946, Shawnee was a little community of 800 people in Johnson County on the outskirts of Kansas City. Their son, Gene Amos, joined the family business after serving in the U. S. Navy. Not long after returning, he met and married Margaret Zoll Amos. In 1976, Gene and Margaret’s son, Gregg, joined the family business and today leads one of the most successful funeral homes in the Kansas City area. Meet the Business Owner:
