Welcoming funeral home
Our Center Avenue funeral home is a welcoming place to plan a funeral, and our professional team is always ready to help guide you through the planning process and beyond. How that plays out is as unique as the loved ones we help celebrate. Regardless of the type of service you seek, our goal is to leave an indelible mark of each life we honor.
Perhaps you want a traditional funeral service at a church, graveside or elsewhere, followed by a catered reception. Or maybe it's a no-holds-barred Texas-style celebration of life, complete with live music, catering and a roof-raising send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one. Either way—or anywhere in between—we go the extra mile to make the occasion special.

From Austin to Davis
The funeral home was established as Austin-Morris Funeral Home, but when 2 of the original 3 owners sold their shares to their partner, Ed Davis, he became sole proprietor and renamed the business Davis-Morris Funeral Home.
He later partnered with Melvin Storm and Groner Pitts, who continued operating the funeral home after Ed died in 1972. While Melvin and Groner worked at the funeral home, they both lived upstairs with their families.
Wendell Dodds, who began his funeral services career with Davis-Morris in high school, bought into the funeral home in 1973.
The 800 Center Avenue location opened in 1947, and the partners remodeled Davis-Morris Funeral Home several times. A large renovation in 1982 added a 300-seat chapel.
As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, Davis-Morris Funeral Home provides both quality service and value.
