Our History

Our History

Lewis Funeral Home, Inc. was established in 1904 by Charles Lewis in the  back of Lewis Furniture Store on the Square in Magnolia. Charles operated the funeral home from 1904 to 1946. 

His son, Fred Lewis operated the funeral home after his death from 1946 to 1981. 

At Fred Lewis' death, his son, Billy Fred Lewis purchased the funeral home and operated it from 1981 until 1994 when he passed away from cancer. 

In 1994, his wife, Saundra and daughters, Dee Dee Lewis Foster and Jennifer Lewis Adkins took over the business and have continued to provide service to families since.
