At Parson Mortuary we know that high inflation and fuel costs are affecting families. As a result, we have restructured some of our services to help you and your family. We are offering more cremation services, as well as lowering the cost of our direct cremation option. In addition, we are now offering more options to our Medicaid clients, including a burial option. We call it our "Good Neighbor Program."
Since 1934, we have tried to be a good neighbor to our community and we will continue to do so. Please contact us for more information.
