About

Lakeshore Mortuary has provided funeral and cremation services in Mesa, Arizona, since 1978. Throughout the years, our commitment to the community has remained unchanged while our services have evolved along with the needs of families who live in the East Valley.

A history of caring for Mesa families

Chapel at Lakeshore MortuaryThe Shumway family founded Lakeshore Mortuary on a lake in the historic Dobson Ranch community of Mesa. It's a beautiful space with a contemporary atmosphere and tranquil view of the lake from two patios. The large chapel has a stained-glass window featuring a water theme. The reception room is perfect for celebrations of all kinds.

Personalized funerals and memorials

At Lakeshore Mortuary, we are experts at creating unique and memorable tributes that celebrate a person’s passions and personality.

Standard venue at Lakeshore MortuaryIf your loved one was a world-class grill master, we can put together a celebratory cookout. Maybe her recipes for banana pudding and chocolate chess pie are worthy of a dessert buffet? We can display a collection of paintings or quilts, dress up in sports jerseys or release 100 red balloons.

From small details like photos and funeral favors to custom decor and a live band—whatever the case may be—we can craft a memorial that warms hearts, lifts spirits and deeply reflects the life of your loved one.

We offer many planning ideas and resources as well as catering and reception services.

Cremation in Mesa

Signature Dedication at Lakeshore MortuaryThere are many options for cremation in Mesa—and they're not all equal. We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our all-inclusive pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

If you're interested in cemetery placement, Mariposa Gardens Memorial Park in Mesa is among the prettiest in the area.

And for those who wish for something more momentous, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

"The lakeshore staff was exceptional, informative, non-pressuring, empathetic, flexible and kind. They made the most supportive and positive experience they could for my family after the tragic unexpected loss of my son. I have already prepaid for my own future death at lakeshore and am confident my arrangements will be handled in the same comforting manner."
