About

Fitzhenry’s Carson Valley Funeral Home in Gardnerville, Nevada, specializes in creating memorial services that speak to the defining characteristics of an individual.

Meaningful tributes with unparalleled service

Our unique pursuits and passions set each one of us apart. At Fitzhenry’s Carson Valley Funeral Home, we take the time to listen to your stories: share a favorite music genre, an area of expertise or a lifelong hobby. From there, we will integrate those elements into a memorial service that best reflects a unique personality.

Imagine a barbecue cook-off in honor of the family’s undisputed grill master, complete with take-home jars of her famous secret sauce. Envision an 80s-themed night of neon lights and power pop, featuring a slideshow of guest photos from a memorable decade spent with their loved one. Whatever your vision, our expert funeral directors will do our best to fulfill almost any final wish.

Traditional religious ceremonies and funerals with military honors remain classic choices. We can also coordinate cremation for those who choose this popular route.

We're here to serve you

You can count on us to guide you through every aspect of funeral planning. If we may arrange a tour of our funeral home, or if you need immediate assistance with funeral arrangements in Gardnerville, please reach out to us at any time, day or night.

History

Fitzhenry’s Carson Valley Funeral Home first opened in 1966. We were originally located on Highway 95 in Carson City, Nevada. Two decades later, we relocated to Edmonds Street, now known as Fairview Drive, to better serve our neighboring communities of Dayton, Indian Hills and Washoe City. In 1990, Fitzhenry’s opened a 2nd location in Gardnerville, Nevada to better serve those seeking a funeral home near Lake Tahoe, Glenbrook, Topaz Lake and Genoa.

Today, we’re proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. Through the decades, our staff remains committed to professional standards and a dedication to our community.

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.

"We were from out of state with no idea of what to do to take care of my brothers sudden and tragic passing. Lindsey was the first person to respond to our voice mail and did so very promptly. Her kindness and genuine concern for my family was more than we could have ever hoped for. She took the time to explain everything to us in great detail but also allowed us to pause here and there while grieving the process."

"Bethany exceeded my wishes 10 fold. Some of the staff sang Highway to Hell...AC/DC. I asked If it was possible to record it and, sure enough the same day as the cremation she sent me the audio clip of everyone singing. Bethany said they had never had a request of that nature but she'd do everything in her power to make it happen....AND SHE DID! Thank you B for being so damn cool, real, and totally efficient. You really made this sad experience, actually kind of fun. All my love to you and the amazing job you did taking care of my husband and all of us! 10's for everyone and 💯% for the B!!xo"
