State suspends funeral home license over issues

DAYTON — Officials have suspended the license of a Dayton funeral home accused of violations of Ohio laws and regulations, including improper procedures that contributed to someone being buried in the wrong grave.

The Dayton Daily News reports McLin Funeral Home owner Scherrie McLin’s funeral director’s license was suspended after a state board found she broke the law. The newspaper said her attorney did not return a call seeking comment Wednesday.

The facility is accused of not cooperating with an inspection, not picking up a body from the coroner’s office for several weeks and taking more than two months to respond to a family about the location of a dead relative.

The newspaper said McLin also owed $26,000 in delinquent property taxes.

She is the sister of former Dayton Mayor Rhine McLin.
