The Marlatt family and staff know how important it is to keep everyone safe and healthy during the current state of our world. The health and welfare of the families we serve, our staff, and community are our highest priority.


We also know how important it is for us to be there for families who have lost a loved one.  We are dedicated to offering our community the same high level of care and professionalism that we have come to be known for over the last 64 years.


With the opening of Washington state on June 30, 2021 under the Washington Ready Plan, we are able to expand the services we offer. Below are our current guidelines:

  • Arrangements are being done by phone, email, fax or postal mail. In office arrangements are now being offered by appointment only.
