Focused on Honoring Your Loved Ones

Understanding the diverse needs of Tacoma families, Edwards Memorial in University Place was founded with a clear vision: to offer a new type of funeral service that aligns with our community's preferences. Before we opened our doors, we engaged with the community to truly grasp what was needed - a service that prioritizes quality and affordability without the burden of unnecessary expenses.


Our mission at Edwards is to provide exceptional services at unbeatable prices, eschewing the costly construction of elaborate facilities in favor of a model that benefits every family we are honored to serve. This approach allows us to lower our overhead and, in turn, pass those savings directly to the families who entrust us with their loved ones.


We are deeply humbled by the trust placed in us and remain committed to offering compassionate, professional care that respects both the wishes of the departed and the needs of the bereaved. You will find personalized care at our three locations: Lakewood, University Place, and Federal Way.

Our experience with Edwards Memorial was outstanding. They provided very clear understanding of the the process. Heather Lyons, who handled the majority of the interaction, could not have made this difficult time any easier. I would highly recommend using Edwards Memorial to any in the greater Tacoma area.

I am so lucky to have been referred to Edward Memorial in university Place. I want to specifically shout out and thank Angela who worked with me and my very difficult family during this process. She always articulated and communicated with us the entire way through. She was the first person I spoke to after I found out that my father had passed away. If I could hug her, I would she dealt with all the complexities of our family dynamic with such grace and kindness. She made sure that I understood everything that went into the process, the timeline and also gave me advice on what I could and couldn’t do . You can tell that both her and the team here have dealt with a myriad of issues and they remain professional and kind the whole way through, even when it was hard. I would strongly encourage all of my peers in Washington to consider using Edwards Memorial in University Pl., Washington To plan an execute their final leg of our life’s journey here. Many thanks to them 🙌🏾
