History of Primrose Funeral Service
In 1931, Odies Primrose and George Jansing established Jansing-Primrose Funeral Home in Norman, Oklahoma. In 1943, the business became Primrose Funeral Home and relocated to North Porter Avenue in 1947. The second generation of the Primrose family ownership began with Ben Primrose in 1973 and continued until his retirement in 1994. Both Ben and his father were licensed funeral directors, and Odies held a 50-year service pin with the Oklahoma Funeral Directors Association.
Sunset Memorial Park opened in 1963 with 80 acres dedicated for cemetery property. There are 12 fully developed burial gardens – two of which are designated as veterans gardens to honor the men and women who have served our country. We also feature an urn garden and a cremation niche wall to serve those who choose cremation. In 1976, the chapel was built in memory of Harold K. MacCorkle and then donated to the cemetery by his family.
Today we are proud to be members of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. When you choose a Dignity Memorial provider, you not only receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment, but also the value you deserve from the largest and most trusted network of funeral, cremation and memorialization services.
