Dalla Valle Funeral Service is a family-owned funeral home, owned and operated by funeral director Scott Owen Dalla Valle.
The funeral home has been serving Bedford County and Fulton County friends and families for over 120 years.
In the late 1800’s, D. Sidney Gump started providing funeral services from his West Main Street home in Everett. In 1910, Mr. Gump moved the funeral parlor from across the street at his home to 22 West Main Street, where the funeral home stands today. Later his son D. Stanley Gump, began working with his father and owned the funeral home. This is a photograph of the D. Sidney Gump funeral parlor in 1910, and, with a closer look, you can see the 2nd and 3rd floors remain the same.
In 1949, Andrew and Sara Conner moved from Clearville to Everett, buying the funeral home from the Gump family. Known as Conner Funeral Service, Sara and Andy lived upstairs for many years, operating the funeral home on the first floor with their son Lynford Conner after he returned home from World War II.
In 1978, Auggie and Beverly (Saylor) Dalla Valle wanted to move back home to Bedford County, with their hometowns being Schellsburg for Beverly, and Windber and Schellsburg for Auggie.
The Conner family members we approaching retirement, and Auggie and Beverly took ownership of the funeral home, and began operations under the same thoughtful and caring manner that Andy and Sara had brought to our communities for so many years.
And now, Scott Dalla Valle, Beverly and Auggie’s son, along with his co-workers Lois Saylor, John McFarland, Marcus McFarland, and Karen Morse, and editor Jolene Mallow, do their best to serve others, continuing the funeral homes tradition of personalized, considerate service.
