Who We Are : Our Story

Our StoryOur StaffOur Location


Bennett Wormington Funeral Home has been owned and operated by the Wormington Family since 1946. We have provided quality service at our present location since that time. We have recently become the only locally owned and operated funeral home in Monett.

The late Oliver and Lois Wormington and the late Gordon and Ruth Bennett purchased the funeral home in 1946 from the Blankenship family. Ron and Mary Ann Wormington purchased the funeral home from his mother, Lois in 1976. They were the owners until their son Rick became a partner in 1994. Rick Wormington purchased the business from his parents January 1, 2004. He has been the sole owner since that time.

Bennett Wormington celebrated its 60th year of service to the community in 2006. We are proudly caring on the tradition of service to families in Monett and the surrounding area.

We're always available to sit down and discuss any needs you may have. We hope our past families will choose us again. Of course, we always welcome new families. We can also help you with planning pre-need arrangements or assist you with transferring a pre-need from another funeral home.

We will continue to provide competent and compassionate service to your family. Let us help you plan your last act of love for your loved one.
