It's not about us, it's about you. We do understand that your family is entrusting us with a very important mission, taking care of your loved one, and it does make a difference who you choose. We are an independent, family owned business, that is operated by a fully licensed funeral director with over 20 years of experience. Why is this important? The focus of our business is on serving you and your family in Parker, Arizona, not pleasing stockholders in another state. Licensing is important because it breeds accountability. Experience means we know how best to help your family in your unique situation. No two families are alike and we wouldn't change that for anything.
We are committed to providing compassionate, personalized service to you and your family. You are our friends, neighbors, and family and we promise to always treat you that way. We are here because we want to serve you. We don't work on commission, receive bonuses, or employ any salesman type tactics here.
We have a staff that is as diverse as the Colorado River Indian Reservation we call home. We are committed to fully honoring the traditions that every single one of you hold so dear. Our shared commitment is in helping every single family who needs us. We care about helping people, it's that simple.
We love our unique Community, with all of its culture and traditons. That's why we opened our funeral home. Parker is our home and it is our mission to make it a better place by relieving some of your family's burdens in one of your most difficult times.
We are here to serve any one who needs us in any way we can.
If we can help in any way at all- PLEASE don't hesitate to call. We never use an answering service, you will always speak to a licensed professional when you call, day or night.
We are privately owned and operated by an Arizona and California licensed Funeral Director, who graduated at the top of her class, from the prestigious San Francisco College of Mortuary Science in 1995. Lorrie Ann Muriel has lived in Parker since 2010 and is also a licensed embalmer, cremationist, and insurance agent. Her son, River, is now in college so, she has plenty of time to devote to the business. Funeral service is not just a job to Lorrie, it is a labor of love. She is also active in the Parker community, serving as the Vice Chair on the Town of Parker's Parks and Recreation Committee, as the Secretary of the La Paz Youth Soccer League, and as a Business Representative for the PAACE Coalition. She is also the Funeral Director Liaison for the National Council of Urban Indian Health and is a freelance journalist in her spare time.
