Terry G. & Terri Lynn Sorrells, Owners
Terry G. Sorrells & Terri Lynn Sorrells possess a passion for service which has lead them on an unbelievable journey through the years. They have been richly blessed with many opportunities and have the good fortune of seeing many of their hopes and dreams fulfilled. Together they have built many successful funeral businesses and have raised the bar for professionalism in the funeral industry. One longtime dream was to build a funeral home in the eastern part of Geneva County where they were raised and completed their high school education. In January 2000, that dream came true with the opening of Sorrells Funeral Home, LLC in Slocomb, Alabama. Little did they know at that time what God had in store for them. They went on to open two more locations; Sorrells Funeral Home, LLC - Geneva in August 2002 followed by Sorrells Funeral Home, Inc. of Enterprise in January 2009. For many years, these three locations operated with great success under the same Sorrells Funeral Home umbrella. However, after 50 years in the funeral industry, consultation with family and friends, and much prayer, Terry and Terri Lynn decided it was time they took more family time. They had sacrificed so much for so many and were so blessed. Though so many of their dreams had come true, they came to realize it was time to simplify their lives. In November 2015, the employees at the Geneva location approached Terry and Terri Lynn with an offer to purchase the business. This was a such a blessing for everyone involved and then, in May 2018, another purchaser acquired the Enterprise location. With the sale of these business, Terry and Terri Lynn were able to return to their roots, enjoy some much needed family time yet remain true to their calling and continue to serve their family and friends in eastern Geneva County at Sorrells Funeral Home in Slocomb!
