Welcome to People's Memorial Association


Everyone deserves respect in life and death.  People's Memorial Association seeks to reduce challenges during the difficult time when a loved one dies. We help nurture members who advocate for and educate themselves around memorial and end-of-life planning. Since 1939, we have been the thought-leader for funeral choice, education, and advocacy in Washington State. There are currently over 71,000 living members in Washington State, and since our inception in 1939, we have served well over 220,000 families. Learn more about our organizational values here.
