Pre-Need There are several benefits to choose a Pre-Need funeral plan. Funeral arrangements tend to be made after a loved one’s passing, when family/friends are emotional and dealing with grief. In addition, there are imminent financial concerns in covering funeral expenses which can be a significant burden for most families.

Pre-Need funeral plans gives you time to financially prepare and can be made at any time. By enrolling in our Pre-Need funeral plan, you can give yourself peace of mind and allow you and your family a meaningful and peaceful closure. Call us at 505.368.4607, e-mail us, or visit our location if you would like to start a Pre-Need funeral plan today.

Memorial Services

Memorial Services A memorial service is a ceremony for memorializing the deceased after they have been buried or cremated. Memorial services may be held at any time that is convenient or significant to you.

Many people hold memorial services weeks following the death, and also hold memorial services on the first anniversary of the death. Whenever you choose to hold the memorial service for your loved one, we are here to help you plan it.

Veteran Services

Veteran Services We are proud to honor those who served our country with our veteran services. We have the most compassionate, caring and thoughtful staff who have years of experience planning military services. Whether your family chooses cremation or burial, we will be proud to take care of all the details involved.

Tribal Services

Tribal Services If you are worried about how to finance your loved one's funeral, we also work with the Navajo Nation's Indigent Burial Assistance Program. If you qualify, this program may help ease your financial burden.

Should the Chapter House, Nursing Home or Navajo Veteran Affairs Office be assisting the family with any donations or refunds, these contributions will be deducted off the amount the Navajo Nation Indigent Burial Package allows. Please contact us for further information.


Cremations Cremation is an alternative to the traditional burial service and does not limit in any way how you choose to celebrate the life of your loved one. You may choose to have a direct cremation, memorial service or a traditional funeral service.

If you would like to discuss cremation services and costs, we are here to answer your questions and bring peace to any concerns that you may have. Please call us today at 505.368.4607, email us on our Contact Us page or stop by our location in Shiprock, NM.
