Lakeshore Mortuary is located in the historic Dobson Ranch area of Mesa. Dobson Ranch as we know it today has a rich history. It began when John Dobson established his 4,000 acre ranch, one of the largest in the area, in 1906. Dobson Ranch, a residential and business community as we know it today began development as a planned community in 1973.
The Shumway family saw a need for a funeral service provider to meet the needs of this new and growing community and established Shumway’s Lakeshore Mortuary in 1978. They discovered a spot along one of the lakes where they would build the mortuary. They took great steps to design an exceptional facility where loved ones could be remembered in a beautiful, contemporary, peaceful environment. The mortuary was opened in 1978, with its first service held on July 10th of that year.
Today, we are proud to be part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. We are committed to exceeding expectations and delivering a standard of service that is 100 percent guaranteed.
