History

Signage at Weller Funeral HomeThe Weller Funeral Home began as a hardware store in Arlington in 1904 by Charles H. Bakeman and Arthur H. Moll. Charles H. Bakeman, known as Charlie, was one of the first funeral directors in the Washington Territory. He settled in Snohomish in 1883 and opened a carriage and furniture making store. In 1884 a settler came in to Bakeman's shop and asked him to provide an emergency casket. With this request, Bakeman started a small side casket-making business.

A commitment to caring for community

In January of 1884, he expanded his business to include funeral directing. In 1905, Bakeman and Arthur Moll launched the funeral business officially. The letterhead on their business stationary suggests the diversity of enterprises they were engaged in: “Bakeman & Moll Hardware, Furniture, Carpets and Undertaking.” In 1961, Athur Moll sold the Moll Funeral Home to Lloyd Solie and Robert Weller from Everett, knowing Lloyd and Robert would uphold the same family-run values and traditions the Arlington community had come to trust with all of their funeral and burial needs.

Moll Funeral Home would become Weller & Solie Funeral Home. The Wellers operated the Home and even lived in an attached apartment with their family of three children while there. The Wellers purchased the interest of Mr. Solie and renamed the funeral home to Weller Funeral Home in the late 1960s. During the early sixties, the Board of Directors of Arlington Cemetery Association requested Mr. Weller assume the Presidency of the Association to manage the day-to-day operation of the cemetery. He remained in this role for 25 years.

Honoring the lives of our veterans

The Arlington Cemetery Association donated the cemetery to the City of Arlington in 1998. During his association with the Arlington Cemetery, he enlarged the cemetery several times, and with the assistance of John Jensen, an active Member of the Arlington Post of the American Legion, established the "Avenue of Flags" which today has over 400 flags of deceased veterans flying in the cemetery on Memorial Day.

In 1972, the Weller Family enlarged the funeral home, adding a beautiful new chapel, office space and several other features. The business continued to grow and was later sold to Uniservice, a corporation of funeral facilities in Washington and Oregon. The corporation is now a part of the Dignity Memorial network of funeral providers.

"Your heartfelt guidance and sincere expressions of sympathy to each of us is genuinely appreciated. The extra measures of assistance you and your staff provided for us all is prized and will not be soon forgotten. I am amazed at your patience with us as we stumbled along, seemingly in a fog, at times. You valued our grief and, without judgement, allowed us to express it in our own ways and on our own schedule. Yes, Our Son Lennin would have enjoyed meeting you...and he would have liked you, too. Thank you Weller !!!"

"Kelsey, Kathy and Rebekah were awesome. Everyone praised how beautiful and well done the service was. People said it was the best service they experienced. I told everyone it was team effort. All I did was give my vision and they made it happened. They answered my questions and was very helpful when I was torn in making a decision. They made a very bad situation actually enjoyable. I know I made my wife proud and they helped make it happened."

"The staff at Weller gave me outstanding service. I finalized pre-arrangements prior to my husband's passing with Weller. Kelsie contacted me within a day or two of Weller receiving my husband for what needed to do next. Kelsie was so patient & kind. I felt totally at ease in knowing she would help me in making final decisions in the most difficult of times. I opted to see my husband for the last time before cremation. Staff at Weller did a beautiful job of providing me a private viewing, and I have to remark that he looked great, with a gorgeous blue blanket on him. Kelsie gave me all the time I needed to spend with my husband. Cremation was faster than I expected. Kelsie was not working the day I picked my husband's ashes up. Samantha was there that day & she gave me the same compassion as Kelsie. I highly recommend Weller. They have exactly the right staff to help give comfort in making hard decisions for our loved one."
