The giving spirit of Willie and Denise Horne, owners of Hornes Funeral Home, garnered them the Merchant of the Month award for March from the Farmville Chamber of Commerce.

“They are givers and are an example for all merchants,” Judy Gidley, director of the Farmville chamber, said.

A funeral home may not be considered a typical merchant, but it is a “necessity in life,” Gidley said.

Denise Horne strives to provide a “warm atmosphere,” she said.

“I am a Christian … and I try to put myself in their place whether losing a mother, child, brother,” she said. “I want to provide the utmost respect for them. I have lost loved ones and can relate to how they are feeling.”

Hornes Funeral Home opened in 2004 on Marlboro Road and relocated to 3865 S. Main St. in downtown Farmville in 2014.

“The Hornes renovated this building and improved the neighborhood and block,” Gidley said.

Hornes Funeral Home was one of the first recipients of the town’s revamped façade grant program.

“The grant was a great blessing and helped with our exterior renovations,” Denise Horne said.

Hornes Funeral Home opened after Denise Horne, who operated Attractions Hair Salon in Farmville for 25 years, decided on a career change. She became fascinated by mortician work at a young age, and her talents in the salon have proven to be an asset when preparing the deceased for their viewings.

Willie Horne, who drove trucks for nearly 30 years, came in off the road to help his wife.

“The first day we opened we got a call,” Denise Horne said. “We are told it would be six to nine months before we would see business. We have been blessed.”

Hornes’ Main Street location features a chapel and provides full, cremation and memorial services.
