We at Parson Mortuary and Cremation Center are working around the clock to serve the needs of our families during these uncertain times.

As an unwavering steward of our community, Parson Mortuary is humbled to have the opportunity to care for those who have died while also caring for those who mourn. Our responsibility is providing care at times demands that we make decisions and implement practices, while confusing and potentially difficult, that are made for the greater good of public health and welfare.

Amid these uncontrollable circumstances, Parson Mortuary remains committed to you and your family while care for your loved one.

Although service options in the immediate future may be severely limited due to these public health-related mandates, we will diligently work with you to find appropriate options and alternatives for your immediate needs within the current restrictions and assist in planning for future public memorial events when circumstances have improved.
