Thank you for visiting our website. When Carney Funeral Home started in May of 2008, it was owned and operated by Tommy and Mabelee Carney, Randy and Lana Carney, and Susan Carney Myers. In August of 2017 Randy passed away. In February of 2021 Tommy passed away. So now Carney Funeral Home is owned by Mabelee Carney and operated by Susan Myers.
Randy Carney, a Blytheville native, passed away August 12, 2017, after a long battle with cancer. He had been a funeral home director and embalmer for over 30 years, and manager/CEO of several funeral homes for more than 10 years. He was a certified eye enucleator with the Arkansas Eye Bank, and also specialized in pre-needs. He served our community as County Judge for the last several years of his life. His faith in God, his family, and his community were so very important to him.

He was an ordained minister for over 60 years, was an adjunct instructor at Arkansas Northeastern College for 10 years, and retired in December 2007 after three terms as Mississippi County Coroner. Tommy and Mabelee were married for 65 years, and have five children: Joe, Rick, Randy (deceased), Susan, and Alan (deceased).
Dr. Mabelee Carney, a Blytheville native, is the office manager and is also a licensed funeral director. She is retired from Arkansas Northeastern College where she was a math instructor, and also served 8 years as head of the College Preparation Department.
Susan Carney Myers, a native of Blytheville, is the manager of the funeral home. She is also a licensed specialist in pre-needs and a licensed funeral director.
