William Wood Funeral Home

Built at the turn of the 20th century, William Wood Funeral Home stands tall in the heart of historic downtown Boonville. The entranceway is graced with a front porch that is both historically beautiful and fully functional, and enjoyed by all. The large front door opens into a foyer that is decorated with a built-in antique hardwood hall tree, a stately grandfather clock and winding wooden staircase.

To the left of the foyer is the chapel, which features a stunning handmade fireplace and large bay windows. The historic beauty of the building is evident with its high ceilings and ornate woodwork, but the funeral home also provides a comfortable and homelike atmosphere for families to gather.

William Wood Funeral Home is rich in heritage and steeped in tradition, yet fully modern. For services, we offer an arrangement room, a visitation room and a chapel that accommodates 140 guests. A comfortable, private conference room is also available on the second floor for families to make arrangements. We are located approximately one mile from I-70 and just four blocks from the Missouri River.

We believe serving families is a privilege, and understand that the loss of a loved one is a very personal experience. Members of our staff take pride in providing a wide variety of choices to the families we serve, including personalized memorial services, cremation options and traditional funerals.

At William Wood Funeral Home, we believe that every life is unique, and every funeral should be too. We celebrate life. We are a proud member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers, offering quality, compassionate care and service you can trust.
