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.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Having had no previous experience dealing with the loss of a loved one, I had no idea what to expect during this difficult time. From the moment we walked in to the mortuary, to the last hug from Cheri at the cemetery, I was astounded by the level of care that was taken by Cheri and the staff at Lakeshore Mortuary. They truly provided an experience

that made the overall pain of the loss of my father manageable and I felt that they really had my family's best interests at heart...which I find very unique and is highly appreciated. Thank you to everyone there for helping my family and me get through this miserable moment in time by providing at least a little sunshine through the whole ordeal."

"The best mortuary, my first time personally having to deal with this type of situation from losing my dad, I'd recommend this place over and over again. All the associates explained and broke down everything you need to know for any needs. Very patient,caring and understanding, called me back right away, smooth process and called to check up on me

after everything. A+ service."
