History

An architectural gem, Delano Mortuary provides one of the few small farming communities in America with a building designed by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

In the late 1950s, owners Cecil and Betty LaCourse wanted to expand the Delano Mortuary building in downtown Delano. They purchased 10 acres of land on the edge of town and asked the famous Frank Lloyd Wright to design their new building.

Wright’s passing two weeks later marked the beginning of a long journey that wouldn’t see the building completed until 1967. Thanks to detailed drawings left by Mr. Wright and the dedication of the architects at Taliesin West, the integrity of Wright’s vision for this building was maintained.

Today, as a Dignity Memorial provider, Delano Mortuary has been restored to Wright’s original design. Our amazing facility, most likely the last design accomplishment of this master architect, is available, by appointment, to be toured.

"My husband had informed me that when he passed away, Delano Mortuary is where he wanted his services to be held. Years before, his father also had his services here. So, I followed my husbands wishes. I wanted this for our family, and to follow his directives. Our family made all the decisions together on every detail....and we were informed ev

ery step of the way on the services, what our choices were, and we also wanted military services at the cemetery. Everything was so organized, I would say...that it was beautiful...respectful, and exactly what our family wanted. At the cemetery, the pall bearers corsages on the casket...and they paid their respects...then attendees with flower petals on the casket, and the opportunity to pay their respects, and then finally, the family....each given a rose and their time to extend their final farewell to our loved one...I'd never seen that at any funeral/interment before....and it was such a loving act, respectful....and yes, for everyone that was there? It also felt private."
