The Woodlawn Chapel was built in 1955 and for 44 years was the home of the former St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. Woodlawn Funeral Home acquired the property in 1999 and the building has continued to serve families of the community as it was originally intended. The Woodlawn Chapel will accommodate 175 persons and is available for use by our families for visiting with their family and friends as well as for use for a variety of services. Adjacent to the Woodlawn Chapel, the Magnolia Room is a spacious visiting room that is available for our families' use.
It is the mission of Woodlawn Funeral Home to assist in the recognition of the value of a life lived and to facilitate meaningful ways for the family and community to celebrate the memory of their loved one. In doing so we will care for each family with the same respect and dignity we would have afforded our own family in time of need.

The caring and experienced professionals at Woodlawn Funeral Home are here to support you through this difficult time. We are humbled that you chose our family to provide these services to your family in this time of need. We take great pride in what we do. At Woodlawn, our purpose is to:

It is with many mixed emotions that the Woodlawn Funeral Home family says goodbye and a most well-deserved ‘happy retirement’ to our longtime friend and colleague, Walter Sloope. Walter has made the decision to retire after over 50 years of dedicated and compassionate service to families in and around the Mount Holly area.
Walter worked with Hankins and Whittington of Charlotte and Carothers Funeral Home in Mount Holly before coming to Woodlawn Funeral Home in 2000. We are honored to have spent the last 18 years working alongside Walter. His vast knowledge of the funeral profession has helped to grow the Woodlawn business and enhance the careers of many more dedicated funeral professionals.
Walter will leave Woodlawn at the end of December. Please join our staff in wishing him well in any future endeavors and the best of luck and relaxation in his retirement.
