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.
