History of Ellis Funeral Home
Covered wagons, cattle, wind and dust are what Newham Ellis encountered when he came to Midland. He started serving the growing community as an apothecary. Ellis Funeral Home was founded in 1892 to meet the funeral needs of the community.
Newham’s son, Newnie W. Ellis, Sr., and his grandson, Newnie W. Ellis, Jr., carried on the tradition of providing exceptional care to Midland. Everyone at Ellis Funeral Home is proud to uphold the commitment to our community that the Ellis family demonstrated for more than a century, by serving our families with dignity and respect.
