MOUNDSVILLE — A Moundsville widow is suing memorial service providers, alleging breach of contract and negligence.
Constance L. Thayer filed a complaint in Marshall Circuit Court against Moreland Burial Vault Company and/or Moreland Vault Company LLC, alleging they failed to install a memorial headstone in a workmanlike manner.
According to the complaint, on April 12, 2017, Thayer contracted the defendants for the engraving and installation of a memorial headstone for her late husband, Delno Thayer, who died April 1, 2017.. The suit says the defendants failed to engrave and to provide memorial headstone in a timely manner.
Thayer says as a result of the defendants' reckless conduct, she suffered serious psychic and emotional injury.
Thayer seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $75,000, punitive damages, with interest, court costs and all other just and proper relief. She is represented by attorney Shane M. Mallett of Mallett Law Offices in Wheeling.
