Founded by Ted and Helen Mayr in 1934, Ted Mayr Funeral Home and Crematory has been serving the families of Ventura County for over 80 years.
The Mayrs establish a well-respected funeral home
Beginning their business in a Victorian home on the corner of Chestnut and Santa Clara streets in downtown Ventura, Ted and Helen worked side-by-side to establish their family business. They dedicated themselves to providing the community with caring, dignified funeral and memorial services. In 1938, Ted successfully campaigned for the position of Ventura County coroner and continued in that capacity for 16 years. He was instrumental in establishing new safety regulations for the many oil field workers in Ventura during that era, greatly diminishing workplace accidents and fatalities.
Seeing their business grow, Ted began a search for property to build the funeral home and chapel he had long envisioned. It was a number of years later when they found the perfect location on Loma Vista Road. Construction of the beautiful English Tudor-style building began in 1949 with completion in 1951. The Mayrs commissioned renowned Santa Paula artists Jesse Arms and Cornilis Botke to design the mural that graces the front of the chapel. Today the beautiful architecture of the facility stands as a known location in the community that provides caring service to people from all walks of life.
Experienced funeral professionals
Funeral director Sherry Scott began training with the Mayrs in 1972 and became part-owner of the firm in 1976, several months before the death of Mr. Mayr. Sherry has continued in her position as funeral director with Ted Mayr Funeral Home and Crematory for over 45 years and is proud to be part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
