Curtis and Shelley Mills


Walk into the Vansant-Mills Funeral Home and you'll feel the warmth. Vansant-Mills is Clinton's only 100% locally owned and family operated funeral home, and that, family spirit is felt as soon as you enter our doors.

The funeral home was established by Howard and Genetta Vansant in 1938. After completing his training in Dallas, Texas, David L. Mills worked with Howard and following his death in 1977, purchased the funeral home.  In October of 2013, David's son Curtis and his wife, Shelley, purchased the funeral home and are continuing to follow in the Vansant tradition of compassionate, caring, friendly service. Believing deeply that each life is special, the staff at Vansant-Mills Funeral Home provides a personal touch with each family they serve.

In addition to providing traditional funeral services, Vansant-Mills Funeral Home offers memorial services, cremation services and personalization with memorial and video tributes. Each Christmas season, a memorial service is held and each family we have served during the previous year is given a hand crocheted angel ornament in their family member's honor. Pre-planning options are available which ensure your individual wishes are carried out at the most reasonable cost. You can contact us using this site's e-mail services or come by and visit us today, our family is waiting to serve you.
