Blanchard St. Denis Funeral Home merges with Legacy Funeral Group

Mike Murphy will turn 70 in September and wants to spend more time with his family, and especially his grandkids. He made the decision to merge his family business, Blanchard St. Denis Funeral Home, with a friend’s company who has other funeral homes throughout Louisiana. Michael Soper has agreed to keep all employees in place and Murphy will stay involved as a consultant for the next two years. This will provide employees with increased benefits and resources.

“I would like all of our clients to rest assured that their pre-need contracts will continue to be honored,” said Murphy.

Legacy Funeral Group:

Legacy Funeral Group owns and operates funeral homes and cemeteries across the country, and their employees operate their locations independently.  Legacy Funeral Group is now one of the premiere names in the funeral home and cemetery industry—and one of its fastest-growing companies. Though Legacy manages funeral homes across the country, we take pride in retaining that family-owned funeral home feel in every single community we serve.

Blanchard St. Denis:
For more than 80 years, Blanchard-St. Denis has been serving the families of Natchitoches Parish. We take pride in the fact that we are Natchitoches’s oldest continuously owned and operated funeral home.
