History

In 1907, Johnson Mortuary was founded by O.C. Johnson, and in 1937, Johnson established Desert Lawn Memorial Park. In 1987, the mortuary relocated to the grounds of Desert Lawn Memorial Park, so that people could now handle all their funeral, cremation and cemetery needs at once. Today, we continue to serve Yuma area families and the surrounding community with care and compassion during this emotional stage of life.

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.

"Sally and Karl went above and beyond to give my dad his final wishes. Unfortunately COVID took my dad too soon and the combination of no life insurance and living out of state made things stressful. With their help, they made the process a bit easier. Karl was very compassionate and listened to my concerns and worked with me to make a memorable and touching service for my dad. He let me talk about memories of my dad and grieve a bit. Karl should be proud of the service he provides to families. It takes a special person to do what he does and I am eternally grateful for his help and his compassion."

"I was very well taken care of and all my questions were answered. Even though I was very emotional Kenny and Kovina made Sue I understand everything they were telling me. They were both very professional and caring. Thank you"

"Kovia was wonderful. She is caring and worked very hard to make my experience burying my husband as stress free as it could be. I wanted a US Marshals Service badge emblem on the headstone and there had never been one done. Kovia was able to deal with the US Marshals rep and get the badge addition approved. Currently, the headstone is being ordered. Kovia is the perfect person and personality for this job, you need to keep her!"
