About

Ellis Funeral Home is convenient to Midland International Air & Space Port and the neighboring communities of Odessa, Big Spring and Monahans. Ellis Funeral Home has provided more than a century of compassionate care when it counts most to the families of Midland and the surrounding areas.

Let's start with a passion

Personalized memorial services begin with an inspiration. Imagine a Texas-themed tribute for a native Texan who loved his state, replete with inscribed flag mementos for those in attendance. Or throw a '70s-themed disco to celebrate the good times. Whether you or your loved one prefers a traditional, religious ceremony or an upbeat and contemporary celebration of life, our attentive funeral directors have the expertise to beautifully fulfill final wishes.

A funeral home with Texas hospitality

Our chapel welcomes celebrants of all faith traditions and cultural backgrounds with West Texas hospitality. Our accommodating reception area adapts to your needs, whether you wish to have a large gathering of friends before the ceremony or an intimate circle of family after the service. Catering options feature classic fare, elegant refreshments or even your secret family recipe. Just talk to us about what you'd like. Our team stands ready to guide you through the funeral options that best fit your needs, from military honors to cremation services.

Lean on us

As an established and dedicated part of the community, Ellis Funeral Home is here to serve you. Please reach out to us, day or night, if we may assist with funeral arrangements in Midland or if you would simply like a tour of our chapel.

History

Covered wagons, cattle, wind and dust greeted Newham Ellis when he first arrived in Midland, Texas. He immediately found his niche, serving his adopted community as an apothecary before he opened Ellis Funeral Home in 1892. Newham’s son, Newnie W. Ellis Sr., and his grandson, Newnie W. Ellis Jr., carried on the tradition of providing exceptional care to families seeking funeral arrangements in Midland. Today, the entire team at Ellis Funeral Home proudly upholds the Ellis family’s long, strong commitment to providing dignified and affordable funeral and cremation services.

"The staff at Ellis Funeral Home are very caring, professional individuals with good senses of humor. For my family, even in this exremely sad and trying time of loss, was very important. They worked with me every step of the way. I had alot of questions, as well as requests. They worked closely with Rush Funeral Home, that prepared my sister for her next to the last journey. Ellis Funeral Home has cared for other loved ones for us. They are trusted."
