Welcome to Our Website.

Gary Bowman, Cheryl  Wettstein and Lori Wilkey started a funeral home on Glenwood Street in 2004 to provide services and merchandise for funerals without traditional sales methods. 

We offered the least expensive options first. Our goal is to help customers make informed financial decisions at a difficult time.

In 2014 we moved to a new location, 10254 W. Carlton Bay Boise, Idaho, just east of State Street and Horseshoe Bend Road. We continue to provide clear merchandise and services options at a fair prices, in a modern setting. We are still aware that family budgets are an appropriate element of funeral discussions with our customers. 

Our goal remains the same and judging by our growth,  a growing number of consumers agree.

We Promise...

  • To help your family make informed financial decisions.
  • To provide clear, affordable prices for both cremation & burial.
  • To give you the peace of mind that it's okay to save money on funerals. "It doesn't mean you loved them less."

Our Concept is Simple
Exceptional Services at Lower Prices!

What the families we serve say...

Lori Wilkey was a huge help with all the arrangements for our dad Earl Wyatt, and Christen Anderson treated him with great respect when he removed him from the Idaho State Veterans Home draped in the American flag. Our family would like to say thank you for all you done for us. We would use you again when the need arises.

Dianna (Wyatt) Gerber and Family
