In August of 1917, J. Best and George B. Lewis purchased the Joseph Quest Undertaking Company. The business was located on the corner of Church and Main Streets directly south of the Post Office. For several years the concern also operated a furniture business in addition to the mortuary. In 1929 the partnership was moved across the street to the Savoy Building. This building was razed in the late 70’s to make way for the new Palmyra State Bank. Sons of the founders, John B. "Jack" and George M. Lewis, constructed the current building located on the corner of Hamilton and Main Street in 1964. Both Jack and George have served for over 50 years in the funeral industry. Today, the grandsons of the founders David and Steve Lewis continue to operate the family business. An addition and complete renovation of the current building was completed just a few years ago. Lewis Brothers also operated ambulance service in Palmyra and Philadelphia until the Marion County Ambulance District was formed in 1974.

For three generations and over 95 years the Lewis families have served Palmyra and the surrounding communities with caring, dignified funeral services. We welcome you to our web site and encourage you to browse the many offerings and information accessible here. We are available to answer questions 24 hours a day and invite you to contact us by phone or by e-mail.
