About Us

Who we are

Celebrating life since 2005

On August 15th, 2005, I established ownership of EastLake Mortuary. Since that day, I have been committed to the families and the community that I have served by being honest and working with those who did not have the means, without compromising dignity. Today, that commitment still rings true. My pledge, as it has always been, is to serve each and every person that enters through the doors of my funeral home with courtesy, professionalism, honor, and respect. My hope and prayer is that you will continue to allow me the opportunity to serve you whenever the need arises.

Respectfully, Shawn T. MillerOwner of Eastlake Mortuary
What we stand for

Our promise

Today, tomorrow, and forever, our commitment to you stays the same.


Every life is unique, and we promise to honor and respect each journey, crafting ceremonies that reflect each individual.


Navigating grief can be overwhelming; we stand by you, providing direction and solace every step of the way.


Beyond a service, we're committed to helping families create lasting tributes that transcend generations.

Our story

As one of the oldest and most recognizable landmarks in the area, Eastlake Mortuary is a stately ode to Phoenix history. Established in 2005, our funeral home and cemetery has evolved greatly over the years to accommodate the evolving needs of our community. Yet our commitment to service remains the same. Even as we modernize our services and facilities, we stay true to our belief that honoring and celebrating life is deeply sacred and personal.
