About

Since 1932, Lisle Funeral Home has been serving the culturally diverse greater Fresno community by providing multi-faith funeral and cremation services.

Personalized funeral services

Regardless of whether you or your loved one have chosen burial or cremation, a personalized funeral or memorial service fills an important role in allowing friends and family to say their last goodbyes, and by honoring, recognizing and celebrating the life of your loved one. We include personalized details in every funeral service we plan, and this leaves lasting and healing impressions on our families and their guests.

It’s our honor to help you plan a celebration that reflects the personality and passions of you or your loved one. Whether that plan includes a traditional burial or cremation, we can help you find inspiration from your life and turn that inspiration into a memorable service filled with thoughtful and meaningful details.

Commitment to community

For 85 years, we have been an active supporter of a variety of local organizations in the Fresno community. We also provide numerous outreach programs that greatly benefit our community, including Dignity Memorial Escape School®, Dignity Memorial Smart & Safe Living®, the Dignity Memorial Public Servants Program and the Dignity Memorial Homeless Veterans Burial Program, among others.

Trusted provider

We are proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. When you choose Lisle Funeral Home, you not only receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment, but also the benefits you deserve from the largest and most trusted network of funeral, cremation and memorialization services.

History

John N. Lisle established 2 funeral homes in Sanger. He also ran the local telephone company, along with a furniture and hardware business. In 1913, he sold both funeral homes and purchased the Beal Brothers Funeral Home in Fresno and renamed it Lisle Funeral Home.

In 1932, he purchased the Swift Mansion and moved to the current location of Lisle Funeral Home. While Lisle Funeral Home has occupied the Swift Mansion since 1932, the home itself dates back to 1905 when Harvey Swift, an early Fresno lumberman, designed and built it for $40,000 to $50,000—an extraordinary sum in the early 1900s. In 1939, the Calaveras Chapel was added on the southern end of the building, and in 1960, a smaller chapel named after Mr. Lisle was added to the north end.

With a beautiful Georgian Revival-style building and ties to local historical figures, Lisle Funeral Home is an intricate part of the Fresno landscape and continues to be regarded among the most prestigious funeral homes in the greater Fresno area. Since opening in 1905, the Swift Mansion has hosted costume balls, birthday parties, church affairs and other social events.

"John Urabe was very kind, patient, and professional, he glided us through everything we needed to do. He took care of all the details and everything came together beautifully from the Church to the Cemetery. John is the best in the business, his years of knowledge, respect and curtesy is foremost. I highly recommend John Urabe, director and Lisle's Funeral Home. It is a beautiful quaint place."
