History

Front exterior at Funeraria Del Angel Van NuysFuneraria del Angel Van Nuys in California has a rich history and has gone through many changes over the decades. Our funeral home's history dates back to 1939, when the Praiswater family bought J.J. Whitley Mansion, which doubled as their home and as Praiswater Mortuary until 1994.

Building relationships

Across the street, the Swimley family owned and operated Swimley Funeral Home, which opened in 1929. At its founding, Swimley Funeral Home was known as Ross H. Jones Funeral Home, later changing its name to Meyer-Mitchell Mortuary in 1943. Eventually in 1984, it changed hands and was renamed Pierce-Brothers Meyer-Mitchell.

Combined services

Unique feature at Funeraria Del Angel Van NuysUnfortunately, California's 1994 earthquake caused extensive damage to both funeral homes. Due to this event, Pierce-Brothers Meyer-Mitchell and Praiswater Mortuary merged into a single funeral home. J.J. Whitley Mansion was demolished, and the 2 families broke bread in the Pierce-Brothers Meyer-Mitchell funeral home and at 5940 Van Nuys Boulevard, where the location was undergoing major renovations before reopening in 1995 as Praiswater Meyer-Mitchell.

Tradition of care

Eleven years later, our funeral home underwent its final name change to Funeraria del Angel Van Nuys. Today, we are a proud Dignity Memorial® member and strive to continue serving San Fernando Valley area families with their funeral and cremation service needs.

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.

"Leticia and the entire team went above and beyond to make sure everything was beautiful, timely and done with the utmost respect and honor to my mother. Leticia Sandoval (and her team) represent the epitome of professionalism while being completely empathetic and supportive to myself and my family. They maintained constant and timely communicatio

n by continuously checking in with me and ensuring everything was according to my specifications. It was like they were an extended part of my family even working on days off to ensure that everything was perfect. I never imagined that such a painful moment for our family could also be beautiful. I thank them very much. In addition, I want to commend the make up artist that prepared my Mom. She looked perfect. Like she was sleeping. It looked so natural and I'm sure that was not an easy thing to accomplish given that my Mom's funeral was not until a month after passing."

"My mom reached out to Funeraria del Angel before my Grandmother passed away and about a week after purchasing services my grandmother passed peacefully at home. We were beside ourselves and didn't quite know what to do next. I took over the responsibility of calling and arranging the collection of her body, the funeral home was able to walk me thro

ugh the process. It was a traumatizing time that nothing can prepare you for and when they came to collect the body it was done in the most respectful way. From the entire experience that's what stood out to me most, the men collecting her body were incredibly professional and respectful, and even in my grief I appreciated the way they cared for my grandmother's body. The solemn tone of their voices and the way they spoke to us with such sympathy and respect. The rest of the services such as the service and the transportation of her body back to her homeland went without issue. I sincerely recommend this place to anyone looking for these services."
