Our Story

J. Warren Funeral Services has many years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

The Warrens have been serving the needs of Pinal County residents since 1953 when Janet Warren's father first took ownership of the Eloy Valley Chapel. After graduating from Mortuary School, Jerry Warren, who was born and raised in Eloy, and Janet took over the operation and began a lifetime of service to their community. 

Over the decades, countless things have changed, including customs and technologies.  While J. Warren Funeral Services has kept pace with these changes, the principles, ethics and philosophies upon which it was built have remained steadfast.

J. Warren Funeral Services is now a third generation family-owned business.  Jerry and Janet's son, Brandon, has been working as a funeral director in the family business for nearly twenty years.  Their daughter, Tressii, also works for the firm.  Even the couple's grandchildren have started to get involved-the beginning of a fourth generation.

As the business grew, they acquired "Cole & Maud" funeral homes in Casa Grande and Coolidge, now known as The Gardens Chapel Cole & Maud on Florence Boulevard and Peart Road, and Cole & Maud Coolidge Chapel. 

Since 2000, the firm has owned and operated the Mt. View Cemetery in Casa Grande.  Built adjacent to the cemetery in 2009, the Mt. View Chapel and Crematorium, features a state of the art crematory and preparation room, the only one of its kind in Pinal County.

In 2013, The Serenity Gardens Chapel was added to the cemetery.  This features a cremation garden, granite pavilion, water feature and an above-ground mausoleum.

The addition of The Gardens Chapel in 2004 allowed the Warrens to better serve large group events.  The chapel alone is large enough to accommodate 150 people and has been the location for celebrations of life, church services and weddings.

Adjoining the chapel, in 2013 The Memory Garden was added.  It is a 1900 square foot facility which provides expanded seating capacity and catering services to provide even more opportunities for gatherings.  This facility, with a garden and patio, is open to families and local businesses for a variety of events, including celebrations of life, wedding receptions, christenings and company dinners.

All of these amenities allow J. Warren Funeral Services to provide the families in the community a level of service above their expectations.  They are committed to the continuation of their renowned service to ensure that they will remain in that position of trust.
