H.S. "Sam" West
In 1958, Sam and Ianna West opened the first funeral home, in Newton Grove. In 1970, West Funeral Home moved from its original location to its present location on 503 Raleigh Street. In 1972, West Funeral Home expanded into the Benson area with the remodeling of one of the older homes on West Main Street.
