B oth the Oswald-Hoskins and the Vale-Hoskins Funeral Homes have received many changes and improvements, none of which would have been possible without the guidance of Leonard Hoskins. Following his "retirement" from a career in carpentry in 1986, he joined his son, Jim Hoskins, and now his granddaughter, Jennifer Hoskins-Long, to oversee all construction & renovation projects conducted at the funeral homes. You will also see Leonard assisting with services and helping out in any way he can.
The first major project was the transformation of 323 E. Mulberry St., Lebanon into an office in 1992. This allows families to conduct business matters in a warm, comfortable environment without interfering with services.
Next was the expansion of the Oswald-Hoskins Funeral Home in 1995 to include a new lounge, handicap accessible restrooms and the largest chapel in Warren County. The chapel features a baby grand piano, a beautiful elyptical window and convenient access to the parking area.
Then in 1998 the Vale-Hoskins Funeral Home underwent complete asthetic and structural improvements. This included new furnishings throughout and the addition of an expansive lounge area, handicap accessible restrooms and central air conditioning.
Finally, in 2005, and in an effort to continue to offer the best services & facilities available, the Vale-Hoskins Funeral Home added a children's room complete with books, videos and toys. Families can find comfort in knowing that even the youngest guests are welcome at Hoskins Funeral Homes.
