Bennett-Wormington Funeral Home was established in 1946 by Oliver and Lois Wormington and Gordon and Ruth Bennett (Oliver’s sister and brother-in-law_ on the foundation of personal, professional and compassionate service to Monett and the surrounding communities. Oliver and Gordon together continued this service until the passing of Oliver in 1956, at that time Oliver’s widow Lois stepped in to carry on the mission that her husband began. In 1974 Gordon Bennett Passed away and the business was purchased by Oliver and Lois’s son and daughter-in-law, Ron and Mary Ann Wormington.
