Modern funeral home facility
At Willis-Reynolds Funeral Home, we understand that being surrounded by loving and supportive family and friends and having the right place for celebrating your loved one’s life are foundational to a meaningful experience. Our well-appointed funeral home offers an expansive lawn and large covered porticos at both the main and chapel entrances. For your convenience, there is ample parking in our large lot.
Inside our Colonial-style facility, you will find a bright and spacious chapel as well as 2 expansive spaces for visitations and gatherings. We also have a bright and airy reception room for catered events.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements. Willis-Reynolds Funeral Home has an on-site crematory, which means your loved one never leaves our care.

Willis-Reynolds Funeral Home was founded in 1938 by James “Rex” Reynolds and Clyde Willis. The business was purchased by Catawba County native Stuart Terry in 1986. Terry bought property and built the funeral home at its current location near the Catawba County Judicial Center in 1989.
The on-site crematory was added in 2002. It was the first in the Newton-Conover area.
Today our team carries on a tradition of fine compassionate care 80 years in the making.
