Family owned and operated

Did you know that Brown’s Cremation and Funeral Service is the only truly trusted, family owned and operated funeral home in Grand Junction with our own onsite crematories available for a full tour?

There are many funeral/cremation providers to choose from in our area. In addition to our funeral home, there are two other providers who have an onsite crematory. These locations are owned by the largest funeral home corporation in the world. As for the other funeral homes in the area, they transport your loved one out of town and in some cases out of state for cremation. From day one, we’ve always felt it was crucial to make the investment in the proper equipment. We believe that when you choose a cremation provider, your loved one should remain in the care of that provider, and not be handed off to another firm and it’s practices that you are not familiar with. That being said, we built a state-of-the art facility in order to properly care for your loved one. Sheila and I have always felt it’s important that our families are able to witness the cremation of their loved one, if they so desire. At Brown’s, we make that available to every family who wishes to do so, at no additional cost.

We believe transparency is important. Call for a full tour of our facilities (970) 255-8888

A Continued Legacy of Love
Brown's Proudly Announces

The Sophie Brown Foundation
Posthumously Honoring Our Funeral Home Support Dog

We originally opened our doors in 2014 as Brown’s Cremation Service, Inc.

Our goal was to offer our community a more affordable cremation option, focusing on exceptional care. Immediately after opening, however, we began receiving requests from families who wanted full funeral service options as well.

The community spoke and we listened: We changed our name to “Brown’s Cremation and Funeral Service”, purchased and remodeled the building located at 904 N. 7th Street to accommodate full-service funerals and memorial services. Then we built a state-of-the-art Service Center on Indian Road to support our cremations, embalming and a comfort room for private goodbyes.

With over six years of dedicated service to the community, we continually changed, updated, renewed, and improved our facilities, services and offerings to the families of Western Colorado.…but, some things never change – the spirit of “Sophie Girl”, our Golden Retriever.

It wasn’t our intention to have Sophie there as a comfort dog, but as fate would have it, that’s exactly the responsibility she assumed. She slipped right into the role of greeting families, and seriously comforting the grieving. Never having had formal training, Sophie instinctively would love and care for people at their time of loss. It wasn’t uncommon to see Sophie quietly slip into an arrangement office to comfort a family. What was amazing, was her uncanny ability to identify the person who needed her most by gently placing her head on their lap.

Sophie Girl

On May 1, 2020, Sophie passed away after a long battle with lymphoma. Her loss has been difficult and created a huge void. We wanted to find a way in which her legacy of giving help and comfort to those in need, may continue on. Therefore, we have established the Sophie Brown Foundation.

This non-profit foundation would serve two purposes:

1. To help with cremation expenses for those who die without any resources and have no family or friends who are able to assume financial responsibility.

Over the years we have seen a growing number of deceased individuals who fall into this category. Medicaid provides assistance for those who meet certain requirements, however many do not qualify. At this time, there are no other state or local agencies to help. The Sophie Brown Foundation would cover a portion or all of these expenses.

2. To help with expenses in providing a service dog to a child or adult who is in need, but lacking financial resources.

We are eager to launch this new non-profit foundation in honor of Sophie Girl, and we believe it will help countless families for decades to come.

It is our hope that many people will find value in the Sophie Brown Foundation as a way to provide dignity and solace to those in need.

Once launched, your contributions will be greatly appreciated.
