The History of
Bladen-Gaskins Funeral Home and Cremation Services: Gaskins Funeral
Home opened its doors in Bladen County in September 2001. Harvey
and Linda Gaskins had been in the funeral business for most of
their adult lives. Linda, being from Bladen County, had a great
love for the people of Bladen County and the surrounding areas.
They decided to "come home" to Bladen County and opened the then
closed Carter Funeral home in Clarkton and renamed it Gaskins
Funeral Home. As the business grew and more families chose Gaskins
Funeral Home, expansion was evident. Wanting to provide a quality
funeral home that was more centrally located for the people of
Bladen County and the surrounding areas, the dream of Bladen
Funeral Home and Cremation Services was born. In October 2004,
while keeping Gaskins Funeral Home open in Clarkton, Bladen Funeral
Home and Cremation Services began operation in Elizabethtown. In
2008, the two facilities were combined and became Bladen-Gaskins
Funeral Home. It's location at the corner of Hwy 242 and Martin
Luther King Drive is very centrally located. The beautiful building
has a large chapel, two large viewing rooms, a large arrangement
and selection room, and a huge parking area.
Today Linda, through Bladen-Gaskins Funeral Home and Cremation
Services in Elizabethtown, along with her experienced staff, make
sure that their goal of giving quality service at affordable
prices and satisfying the needs of the families
with utmost dignity is met.
