Funeral Director & Embalmer
Shelley Family Funeral Home & Crematory is proud to welcome Brandy Williams to their staff. She is a licensed funeral director, embalmer and Pre-Need Counselor. She will be caring for the Arkansas City area families. Brandy comes to us with an extensive background in funeral service. She graduated in 1998 from the University of Central Oklahoma with her bachelor’s degree in Funeral Service. The last 20 years, she has lived here in Cowley County. She is knowledgeable and compassionate to the needs of this community.
She has brought with her some new ideas for memorialization and fresh ideas to capture the essence of a person’s life. Brandy believes that big changes are coming for funeral homes and need to be ready to facilitate the changes. One change is that switch from “traditional funerals” to “traditional cremations”. Cremations are expected to hit an all-time high in our industry in the next ten years.
If you need help planning a celebration of life event please contact her at the funeral home. In addition to her work, she enjoys making memories with her family. She and her husband, Matt also own and operate CM Williams Ranch east of Arkansas City. Brandy enjoys hiking, camping and working on the ranch with her husband. They have three children, Hannah, Bowdy and Addyson. Hannah is currently in nursing school, Bowdy is at Cowley College working towards a business administration degree and Addyson is a freshman at Central Burden High School.
