Willis Funeral Service first opened on Central Avenue in Batesville in 1995. In 1998, S & S Crematory was built, it was the only crematory within 100 miles of Batesville at that time and was co-owned by Sandi Willis and Dr. Sarah Hays.
In January 1999, Dr. Hays purchased half interest in the funeral home creating Willis-Hays Funeral Service. The new funeral home on Harrison Street was opened at that time.
On October 6, 2008, Sandi Willis Martin became sole owner of Willis Funeral Service and S & S Crematory.
Many families of Independence County and the surrounding North Central Arkansas area have entrusted their loved ones to Willis Funeral Service and S & S Crematory.
We are very appreciative to these families for their trust in us.
