We know losing a loved one is a difficult experience. That's why we're committed to helping our Tucson area families with compassionate, professional and personal service.
As a proud member of the Dignity Memorial® network, we believe each life is unique and should be celebrated as such. Families who choose Desert Rose Heather receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment. In addition, we provide the quality you deserve from the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers in North America.
Each year, our location welcomes guests to attend an annual Holiday Remembrance Service for the client families we have had the privilege to serve throughout the year. This event allows everyone to honor their loved ones while receiving our support during what can be a difficult time of year.
Please contact us to meet our caring team or for more information about our funeral services. We look forward to serving you.
Heather Mortuary & Chapel in Tucson, Arizona was established in 1988 by the Heather family. Prior to opening this funeral home, the Heather family had operated another funeral home for many years in Lordsburg, New Mexico. Harber Jack Heather and his son, Jack Heather, opened Heather Mortuary in 1988 on River Road before relocating to its current location on Columbus Blvd.
In December 1992, Heather Mortuary & Chapel became a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers. Harber Jack Heather passed away in Arizona in 1995 leaving behind a legacy of compassionate care in the community.
Heather Mortuary & Chapel merged with Desert Rose Cremation & Burial in April 2013, and is now known as Desert Rose Heather Cremation & Burial. Even though the funeral homes have changed over the years, our commitment has never changed as we evolve with the community. We're proud to serve the Tucson area and look forward to helping families celebrate their loved ones.
