In 1931, Odies Primrose and George Jansing established Jansing-Primrose Funeral Home in Norman, Oklahoma. In 1943 the business became Primrose Funeral Home and relocated to North Porter Avenue in 1947.

The second generation of Primrose family ownership began with Ben Primrose in 1973 and continued until his retirement in 1994. Both Ben and his father were licensed funeral directors, and Odies held a 50-year service pin with the Oklahoma Funeral Directors Association.

"Exceptional place, they took very good care of my son, and treated me and my family and our friends with kindness and respect"

"As well as during the preparation, as during the hours of the service in the chapel and during the time of the funeral, care and patience was given, making sure all is clear; going the extra mile to accomodate our specific needs; with a gentle, loving smile from all staff, to avoid adding to the heavyness of our own emotions; respect in distance, following us, and be exactly there in time where all needed to be; wile letting us having our own way of doing. All was a most extra-ordinary supporting experience. And the special touch of the coffee and the cookies, as my husband loved cookies, was so heartwarming. I cannot recommend your service enough. On top of that the place is just so beautiful, with mostly laying stones, so that it really gets the feel of 'resting in peace'. Thank you."
