In 1960, Sarah, the daughter of Percy and Helen Peek, gradated from the Atlanta School of Mortuary science. She joined her parents and changed the name of the funeral home to Lee-Peek. She began her tenure of love in the funeral delivery service. Sarah established an ambulance which transported black patients to Gainesville, Tampa, West Palm Beach and Miami. She designed and developed the current van type ambulance now used around the world. She delivered babies and became a champion for the poor. Sarah was one of thirteen female licensed funeral directors and embalmers in the world. She was involved in the family business until her death in 1991.
Her son, Rufus, a graduate of Lynn University's Mortuary School, took over the reins of the business in 1992. This family owned business has a new member, Antonio Jackson, an Honors Graduate of the Miami-Dade School of Mortuary Science in 2008. He is a Licensed Funeral Director & Embalmer and assists his uncle in the management of this family business.
After serving this community for over 89 years, this fourth generation of funeral directors look forward to continuing to serve its community.
