After seeing a trend in the funeral industry moving towards cremation, Artie Morvant, one of the original owners of Samart Funeral Home and crematory, opened the funeral home, cemetery, and crematory on the grounds on which they are currently located in the summer of 1995. Offering affordable, low-cost, funerals, cremations, and burials allowed the funeral home to expand rapidly.

In the early 2000’s, new investors purchased the funeral home and operated it until 2006 when the company was renamed Samart Funeral Home of Houma. Currently, it is owned and operated by a local family with many years of experience in the funeral industry. Samart Funeral Home of Houma continues to honor our original concept of being a leader in the community offering dignified and affordable funerals, cremations, and burials.

Soon afterwards, the current owners of Samart Funeral Home of Houma, seeing the need to expand the funeral their operations even further, opened Samart Funeral Home of Gray in order to serve the local community more fully by extending their services to a wider geographical area. This new, modern facility and its experienced staff of funeral services professionals offers a wide variety of funeral and crematory services meeting the respective needs of the larger community.

Smart Funeral Homes of Houma and Gray are dedicated to continuing to provide the community with the compassionate, professional services of excellence, drawing from the past, continuing through the present, and carrying on into the future as the trends of the funeral industry develop and the needs of the community expand in diversity.
