Brent E. Shain has served Southeast Oklahoma for 30 years beginning in Hugo during December 1984, as a location manager for Lampton-Mills and Coffey Funeral Homes. Soon after he became the district manager over the Southeast and Western Region of Oklahoma for the Mills Family Funeral Homes and continued his service until 1991. Brent and Mary wanted to return to Hugo and raise their family in the small town they grew to love. They began Building a New Tradition by opening the Mt. Olive Funeral Home in Hugo during September of 1992. Brent and Mary trained up their four children in Hugo, Oklahoma, and continue to work daily in the family business. In May of 2006, Brent established Shain Family Funeral Service, Inc. by purchasing funeral homes in Durant, Hugo, Broken Bow, and Sapulpa, enabling them to better serve the families from Southeast Oklahoma and Northeast Texas. At all five of the locations, the vision is: "Serving your family with compassion and integrity."
Brent, Mary, and their son, Stephen, are all licensed Funeral Directors. Stephen lives in Hugo with his wife, Sarah Abigail, and he is currently serving as Funeral Director in Charge and Manager of Prater-Lampton-Mills & Coffey Funeral Home. He also continues to serve Troop 84 as Scoutmaster. They have an addition to their family, Boaz David Shain, who was born on April 26, 2013. Brent and Mary's oldest daughter, Sarah, lives in Sherman, TX with her husband Matthew, and works full-time as an English Teacher at Sherman High School, while finishing her Master's in Education Administration. Sarah and Matthew also had an addition, Atticus King Morrison, who was born January 26, 2013. Their second daughter, Rebekah, is a licensed Cosmetologist and married Brent David Odell on December 20, 2012. She is currently living in Durant, Oklahoma and working for Shain Family Funeral Service at the Durant location. Their youngest daughter, Anna, is attending Southeastern Oklahoma State University to pursue a nursing degree. Anna is attending the University of Stirling, Scotland UK, this fall semester. The families have all been active members of the Victory Life churches since 1999.
