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.
The cemetery opens
Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery opened in 1963 as an 80-acre cemetery in Norman. In 1976, a chapel was built at the cemetery by Harold K. MacCorkle's family in his honor.
Today, both Primrose Funeral Service and Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery provide compassionate care as part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers.
