Since 1943, the Williams family has been involved in the funeral business and assisting people on the Eastern Shore of Virginia at their time of need. Our family considers our profession to be a calling, not just a job. We consider it a privilege for families to request our services and take this sacred trust seriously when we are called.

This site has been designed to give you information about our family, staff, facilities, service and merchandise. There is also a page to request more information from us from the comfort of your own home.

We also have recent online obituaries for you to view. You may also send a note of condolence to a family when other obligations and commitments prevent you from attending a visitation or funeral service.

The Williams family hopes that this website is a convenient tool to better serve our community. We have been a part of this community for many years and appreciate the families we have served in the past and the trust of our many new area residents.

What Our Families Say TESTIMONIALS

Our family can never express enough just how compassionate, professional and attentive each member of WOFH was during the loss of our mom and grandmother last November. From the responsiveness of John T immediately upon her passing all the way through the difficult planning of family logistics that included Thanksgiving, we were able to make informed decisions knowing that all details would be carefully handled with our needs and desires at the forefront. Mr. Johnny Williams' compassionate care during the family viewing and her memorial service was a blessing as he has cared for several of our loved ones throughout the years and along with John T has always made the difficult times feel like we were family. New to us but an absolutely priceless addition to the team, Crystal gave nothing short of phenomenal care to every detail throughout the entire process right down to mom's favorite detail--her lipstick, as well as always being available and responsive in the days leading up to and at the memorial service. Crystal's compassion runs deep and she made the process so much easier. Every member of WOFH helped us honor mom's wishes as well as made the entire family feel loved, supported and comforted. They are absolutely the best!
