Modern and stylish funeral home

Sitting area at Palm Southwest MortuaryWith a stylish, modern, designer interior, the funeral home is a welcoming space. Palm Southwest Mortuary has comfortable arrangement offices and visitation rooms, as well as a freestanding, natural stone fireplace that creates the perfect indoor space to visit with loved ones before or after memorial services. During cooler months, the patio is a lovely spot to reflect while taking in the gorgeous Spring Mountains located to the west.

Our fully equipped kitchen has warm oak cabinets, stylish granite and stainless steel appliances. We work with licensed, professional caterers to plan all types of receptions or food delivery before, during or after memorial services. This can range from a simple beverage service with snacks to a casual or formal meal at breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Elegant and versatile chapel

Chapel at Palm Southwest MortuaryOur chapel holds up to 160 guests, offering a truly customizable service. Chairs can be used alone or with tables. Windows throughout the chapel allow for an abundance of natural light to stream in during services. The chapel also includes new audiovisual equipment, giving you the opportunity to display a memorial slideshow or video during services.

The chapel’s beautiful coffered ceiling highlights its high roof line, magnificent chandeliers and natural stone columns. The entrance to our desert-landscaped patio is located inside the chapel. You may choose to leave the patio doors open during the cooler months to allow gentle breezes and the quintessential aroma of the creosote plant to flow into the space.

Let’s start with a story

Every person has a unique life story, and at Palm Southwest Mortuary, we are experts at telling stories. Our associates take all the hobbies, passions and interests that make a loved one special and turn that inspiration into a one-of-a-kind tribute filled with thoughtful and meaningful details.

Did she often try her luck at the city’s many casinos? We can host a poker night in the chapel and give guests personalized decks of playing cards as mementos. If dad had a green thumb, we could display his favorite blooms and serve a catered meal inspired by the veggies in his garden. If you can name it, we can probably do it.

History

Palm Southwest Mortuary opened in 2016 and is the newest member of the Palm Group of Mortuaries. From humble beginnings in 1927, the group started with 1 location and 4 employees, growing to include 10 locations and more than 250 dedicated employees.

Anna Roberts Park establishes Palm Funeral Homes

Unique feature outdoor patio at Palm Southwest MortuaryAnna Roberts Park founded Palm Funeral Home in 1927 on the corner of First Street and Carson Avenue, where the Golden Nugget stands today. Originally from Pennsylvania, Anna arrived in Las Vegas in 1911 when she was in her early 20s. She had been living in Bakersfield, California, working as a cook in a boarding house when she met her future husband William Roberts. A savvy woman, Anna helped William run various business interests.

In 1912, she embarked on a cross-country journey to finance a lime and gypsum quarry near Slon, Nevada, the Nevada Lime and Plaster Co. The business (founded by her husband) is still in operation today. Anna’s efforts were very successful. She came back to Las Vegas $64,000 richer—that's around $1.6 million adjusted for inflation—and the quarry was opened.

During this time, the couple also owned and operated the People’s Store, a general store on Fremont Street. They traded dry goods for basketry and other crafts made by the Paiute Indians.

In 1915, Las Vegas’ undertaker was jailed briefly and subsequently run out of town. With the former undertaker gone, William saw an opportunity and opened the Las Vegas Undertaking Co., which drew on skills he learned from a former career. Anna learned on the job but eventually sought formal training in Los Angeles in 1920 while William ran the business.

When she came home in 1925, she discovered that her husband was being unfaithful and promptly filed for divorce. William left Las Vegas while Anna stayed, and in 1927, she opened Palm Funeral Home, named for a single palm tree in her yard. As a trusted funeral service provider, Palm Funeral Home won a contract to bury workers who died during the construction of the Hoover Dam.

Honoring Anna’s legacy

In 1946, Anna sold the business. Throughout our history, we have made it our mission to carry on Anna's commitment to serving Las Vegas families with the highest degree of compassion, respect and attention to detail. Today, we are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

"Our loved one had to be flown from Vegas to our hometown which took nearly three weeks with several holidays in those weeks. We had a viewing at the final destination mortuary in our hometown. Our loved one absolutely looked phenomenal....hair, makeup, clothing, ....and it was all done at Palm southwest Mortuary."

"My experience with Palm Mortuaries & Cemeteries was better than I had hoped for. The staff were professional, compassionate and accommodating. The facility was beautiful and had a warm-cozy vibe. Their exceptional service wasn't limited to the viewing and funeral service, but it continued on to the military burial service. Their staff guided us every step of the way. I'm glad to share that we had a beautiful and honorable send off for my dad. My heartfelt thanks to Matt, Brian and Michael. May God bless you for all the wonderful work that you do and making things easy during a difficult time."
