In 2006, the dream of Rev. C.E. Willie, III, a licensed mortician became a reality when he opened his very own funeral institution. Rev. Willie is the President and CEO of the C.E. Willie Funeral Service, LLc. (CEW). The firm is named after his grandfather the late Claude E. Willie, Sr..

When I was a child growing up in Pollocksville, North Carolina, I told my mother the late Louise Jones Willie that one day I would be a mortician. My father Claude E. Willie, Jr., always said, be prepared when the door of opportunity opens. We are excited as a family that the door of opportunity has opened to serve the greater Pittsboro Community.

Staff members of C.E. Willie Funeral Service are caring and experienced professionals who understand that each family is unique and has personal requests and traditions. These requests and traditions are of utmost importance to our staff of licensed funeral directors.

Below is a listing of our full-time and part-time staff.

  • Linda D. Willie - Administrative Officer
  • Craig Bell - Funeral Attendant
