Annie E. Young Cemetery, owned by Thacker Memorial, is the largest cemetery in Pike County and located in a beautiful, peaceful setting of rolling hills. There are numerous acres to be developed as the need arises. Private crypts, garden estates, and two mausoleums as well as family gravesites are located on this spacious land.
Larry Thacker purchased the Annie E. Young Cemetery in 1984, and has worked constantly to landscape the many acres of weeds and overgrown bushes into the beautiful green expanse of today.
The picture to the right shows the entrance to the cemetery early in Spring. The flowering trees that line the road enhance the natural beauty of the area. Later in Spring and in Summer the trees provide a green leafy lining for the road.
A perpetual care fund has been established so generations from now, the landscaping and facilities will be as beautiful as they are today.
The J.U. Thacker Mausoleum was built in 1990 and was named in honor of Larry's father. The mausoleum provides a place for above ground burial and a quiet soulful place that families can visit in solitude.
