History

Newell Funeral Home has been serving Mount Vernon and Waltonville area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

In the spring of 2002, Jason Newell purchased Fry and Frick Funeral Home in Waltonville, Illinois. It is now known as Newell Funeral Home. Upon taking ownership it was renovated with a new covered porch, paint, furniture and carpet.

In April of 201,1 the Newell Funeral Home in Waltonville was destroyed by a storm that came through the community. We rebuilt a Waltonville Newell Funeral Home and reopened it in April of 2012.

We pride ourselves in maintaining the traditional funeral services for families in Jefferson County, while introducing the latest innovative funeral technology to enhance the tribute of your loved one. We have always made business decisions with the families we serve in mind. We are proud of our Newell Funeral Home website. On this website we offer online obituaries, online condolences, and online memorial tribute videos featuring photographs set to customized backdrops, text and music that are also featured during your loved one's funeral services if one chooses.

In 2015, Newell Funeral Home was purchased by Hughey Funeral Home. Hughey Funeral Home is continuing a legacy of trust started by Jason and his family. We pride ourselves in taking care of the families who choose Newell Funeral Home.
