When my dear friend called from ICU to tell me she needed to get her affairs in order I immediately flew from Washington to help her. As executor of her estate all the details were mine to deal with, and Malesich and Shirey made the first steps so stress free. They were recommended by a friend, and I'm so glad I took the advice. From the first phone call to when I picked up ashes, the staff were knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. On a practical note, their price for cremation was half what I paid for my parents' through a traditional funeral home. I highly recommend their service!

At a most challenging time, the staff at thus business was so very efficient, kind, and supportive. Every person I dealt with was professional, all of their services were done with such care. They assisted with issues regarding a prepaid policy my family member had. In all, they were the one bright spot in a time that was so very hard. Should you need this kind of service, reach out to Tasha and Tucker. You will be in good hands.

I would recommend this funeral home to anyone! The staff were very kind and compassionate. There was no sales pitch, they just gave us options and let us decide what we wanted and not what they thought we should want. Everything they said, was just as it turned out to be.

I was thankful I chose Malesich and Shirey funeral home. They arrived at my house the night my husband passed away and from that moment til his ashes were returned I received kindness and compassion from Sean. Thank you during this difficult time.
