Considered one of the finest funeral homes in the continental United States when it was completed in 1931, Fentress Mortuary remains an architectural icon in the city of Fort Smith, Arizona. Founded by Oscar and Mae Fentress, the mortuary occupied one of the few buildings constructed solely for use as a funeral home at the time.

Generations of compassionate care
Fentress Mortuary maintains a longstanding relationship with generations of families in Fort Smith and surrounding communities. We understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are committed to providing compassionate care, as well as professional and personal service. We strive to treat everyone like family.
Personalized funerals and memorials
Whether you need a traditional funeral service or a customized celebration of life, we listen to your needs and request and will do everything we can to meet your expectations. We help take care of every detail, no matter how big or how small. From photographs and keepsakes to food and music, a personalized funeral or memorial service can be as simple or elaborate as you desire.
Want an afternoon ice cream social? Or maybe an evening wine and cheese gathering is a better fit. Were you thinking about a disco funeral complete with a glitter ball and a dance contest? If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.
