Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery was awarded the 2016 Funeral Home of the Year Award from the Arizona Funeral, Cemetery and Cremation Association. This distinguished honor is bestowed annually to the funeral home that best upholds the standards and integrity of our industry.
At Mountain View Funeral Home, every member of our staff takes care to serve families with heart and compassion. Providing extraordinary service and services is a standard part of how we run our business. We truly do care about those we serve and want to offer comfort and assistance in every aspect of the funeral process.
We also believe in taking our service to the next level for our families. For example, for the funeral of a second generation fire fighter, we arranged to use the old fire truck driven by the deceased to serve as the hearse. For another funeral, we orchestrated a balloon release to the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole followed by a dove release to Mercy Me’s “I Can Only Imagine”. This family was quite touched and told us we were the kind of people who would bring warm brownies to their door. What she did not expect, then, was that our After Care Visit would include home baked brownies. One last example is the gift that our family service advisor presented to the mother of a young son who passed. She had personally created a lovely photo charm as a small remembrance. This was something she did on her own accord because of the empathy she had for this mother.
Our intent with sharing these examples is not to pat ourselves on our own backs, but to share how much we care about providing the very best to families who entrust us with their loved ones. For us at Mountain View Funeral Home, it’s about people. We know that every single family that comes to us needs care, comfort, and compassion. It is our privilege to provide honor, dignity, and love to those we serve.
