We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

In 1946, James Otis (J.O.) and Margot Mudd purchased the property at 606 West Main Street in Bowling Green, Missouri. The building at that time was a large house dating from the 1880s. The exact date of its construction is unknown. The Mudds did extensive remodeling and redecorated the building. They opened the business under the name J.O. Mudd Funeral Home. Later that year, the Mudds purchased Vomund Funeral Home in Silex, Missouri and continued building a rich tradition of personal, caring service to the surrounding area.

After 41 years of service in Bowling Green, J.O. and Margot Mudd sold the funeral home on January 1st, 1987 to  John and Cathy Veach. Later that year, a third location was opened in Frankford, Missouri. The business was renamed Mudd-Veach Funeral Homes. In 1994, the Silex location was remodeled and expanded. In 1997, a new property in downtown Frankford was acquired. In 2006, the site in Frankford was closed and service to the Frankford area continued through the remodeled facilities in Bowling Green.

In 2004, the property in Bowling Green underwent a major expansion and remodeling project. Renovations and additions included a new chapel equipped with an audio/video projection system, closed-circuit television system, main office, arrangement office and casket display center, handicap accessible restrooms, lounge, and parking expansion. That same year, Ryan Bibb joined as a full-time staff member. Our state-of-the-art facilities and qualified staff allow us to offer personalized options to meet your family's needs. We are committed to continuing the rich tradition of offering personal, professional funeral service.

On January 1, 2015 Mudd-Veach Funeral Homes took another step in its rich history by going through a name change as Ryan and Stacey Bibb took on an ownership role in the funeral home.  With this change, we felt it was an appropriate time to transition the name to Bibb-Veach Funeral Homes, LLC. 

In January of 2017, John and Cathy Veach stepped down from day to day operations of the funeral home and retired after 30 years of ownership.  On December 31, of that same year, Ryan and Stacey Bibb took over sole ownership and have continued on the legacy that was handed to them.  John and Cathy currently live in Springfield, MO where they are enjoying being closer to family.
