Staff

Each individual deserves an appropriately individualized final tribute.

Steve and April Palmer, Owners Steve and April Palmer, Owners

In the thirty years I have been in funeral service, the one lesson I have learned is that each person is unique. Each individual deserves an appropriately individualized final tribute. Our goal is to work with each family to remember their special loved one in a personal, meaningful and healing way.

My wife April and I are proud to be active community members. We feel it is important to give back to the community and to help the Verde Valley grow in a responsible way. Thank you for allowing us to provide this important service to our Valley.

We are proud of our staff. They are qualified in their fields and truly wish to help those who have experienced a loss.
