Hoefer---- Sevier and his wife Janice purchased the firm in 1989 upon his father's retirement. Janice received her funeral director's license and began assisting Sevier at that time. In 2000, she became the full-time secretary at the Funeral Home and works beside Sevier in many facets of the business.

Both Janice and Sevier are lifelong residents of Higginsville and are members of the Salem United Church of Christ. They have a daughter, Sarah, who is a process coordinator for the Lees Summit School District, and two grandchildren, Blake and Lily. Their son, Robert (Rob), has been in Heaven since 1999.

Hoefer Funeral Home, Inc. is located in the original home of its founder. Much remodeling has been done to the 100 year-old building through the years and it continues to stand tall and proud.
