as OKFDA President
Kacey Ferguson of Waynoka, Oklahoma was installed as the 2021
Oklahoma Funeral Directors Association President during the 118th
OKFDA Convention and Expo on Monday, April 26, 2021. The convention
was held at the Tulsa Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center where
funeral homes throughout six districts of Oklahoma’s 77 counties
Kacey is the second female president to preside over the Oklahoma
Funeral Directors Association following in the footsteps of her
grandmother, Irene Lanman. Irene was the first female president
serving as president in 1994. So not only is this a personal
achievement for Kacey there is historical significance as well for
OKFDA. Kacey’s journey began in the spring of 2011 when she became
District III Chairperson. Kacey’s next ten years were spent working
her way through the OKFDA Board of Director positions while working
as a funeral director in the family business at Lanman Funeral Home,
Inc. Kacey’s late grandfather, Kenny Lanman, Sr. purchased the first
funeral home in Helena in August, 1975. Still family owned with
three generations plus support staff, Lanman Funeral Home, Inc. now
has five locations serving families in Helena, Cherokee, Okeene,
Medford and Kiowa, Kansas and surrounding areas.
In her acceptance speech Kacey said “I would like to thank my
Grandmother Irene for being such an inspiration, mentor, and role
model as well as the Oklahoma Funeral Directors Association. I would
also like to thank my family and friends for all their support and
assistance along the way.
If you see this special lady out and about, be sure to give her a
big word of congratulation.
