On July 31, 1970, McDonald’s Funeral Home became Ridgeview Funeral Home, moving right next door to the original McDonald’s Funeral Home. On July 31, 1981, Harper Funeral Home merged with Ridgeview Chapel and we became Harper-Ridgeview Funeral Chapel.

When we had our beloved pet cremated, Sonya was the one who took care of her.We could just feel the loving care when we got her back. The cherry urn was beautiful, and even pamphlets to help us for future choices.I will definitely use them again, and recommend them very highly to anyone in need of a quality cremation with such loving care.I did recommend them to a friend,"Claudia Brown" She was equally happy with the work and love Sonya put into helping her with her Bulldog "Bay View Flying Solo"For Claudia, and for myself, it eased some of the pain when we needed it the most.read more

I used them for my pet's cremation. Sonja was very kind and compassionate, and everything happened exactly as planned. I had some special requests that were met willingly. I would recommend Peninsula Pet Cremation for your pet's last needs.read more

Family death called us here, the staff was wonderful and caring. We were treated as family, a lovely young lady named Stacy or maybe Sarah (confusing times, sorry) put us at ease with directions. Thank you so much for all of the help you all offered to our family.read more

Elijah was very helpful during the hardship of dealing with my father passing. He was always available to answer my many questions. He was up front about cost and I didn’t feel like I was being ‘talked into’ anything that wasn’t necessary. The other staff there during the service was kind and understanding, making everything as good as it possibly could have been.read more

I can't say enough about the empathy and compassion shown by Sonya Reddick during the process of cremation for my dog, Bailey. She understood my loss completely and was an incredible "listener". I will definitely be using Harper RIdgeview when it comes to my other dog Ana Mai.read more

With surprise and deep sorrow, my family needed the services of a funeral home. The police took my niece's body to Harper-Ridgeview, and we choose to use their services for her cremation. Alexis was in her first few months on the job. But her professionalism and empathy reflected her time with Hospice. My family dealt with our grief using sarcastic humor, Alexis supported us coping in this manner. The death was suspicious in the minds of law enforcement. Alexis answered every question I had about the process of an autopsy and how to work with the medical examiner. The remains of my beloved niece were packaged in an affordable container that was displayed at her Celebration of Life. It will be several more months before the coroner's final report is complete, and I know Alexis will be there to help me understand the final conclusion to explain my family's loss.read more

I’m just so pleased and grateful to have gone here, You truly cared and worked with me to get through these hard times. It’s comforting to know there are businesses out there that truly love the people in their community. Thank you guys so much for everything!read more

Mark was extremely compassionate and willing to help us with all of our needs. He made the experience lighthearted while allowing us to grieve when needed. He took extreme care of everything in regard to the cremation and made the experience one of a kind. He provided so many benefits for us to help my family have closure and be able to continue in the grief process with a new peace. Highly Recommended. Thank you!read more

Back in 2015, my wife Alyce (Hallman) Hillman passed away and in the proves of looking for a funeral chapel to take care of her we went to Drinnon Ford and we asked them for a price of service, and they seemed to be too business orientated and not family orientated, they seemed like to take care of her was just another thing they did there, so, we went to Harper Ridgeview, and we explained what we just had gone through, and the people there were ready to do anything they could to make us feel that the right things would be done to complete our funeral needs, they even matched and went one step further to make sure our needs were met and we felt comfortable with the work that was done. Now recently, our pet dog passed away, and we wanted to make sure we felt like we were honoring him, so, I remembered a roadside billboard that said that Harper Ridgeview Funeral Chapel was now cremating pets and so, I didn't have to even think who could take good care of our dog and so I called to find out about that and was assured that everything would be taken care of to my liking, and today Mark the General Manager and Savanna came to take our beloved pet and take good care of him. I would trust anyone that worked for Harper Ridgeview for any of my needs when thing come up I know that all will be done to my satisfaction. A Big Thank You goes out from me for the work that they do there defenetly are a caring place,THANK YOU!!!Jim HillmanPort Angelesread more

Huge rave to Harper-Ridgeview and their staff; Danny, Mark, and Savannah. I recently lost my pet snake, and tried calling a couple veterinary offices to see if they could help me. They made me feel as if my request was ridiculous and unreasonable. I had almost given up hope when a friend suggested Peninsula Funeral Homes. Danny called me personally, less than 24 hours after I had submitted my inquiry online. Danny was compassionate and helped me understand the process and my options. When I arrived at Harper Ridgeview, Mark and Savannah were also equally compassionate and kind. Though cremating a pet snake might not be everyone's "cup of tea" Danny, Mark, and Savannah didn't treat me any differently than if I was chosing these services for my childhood dog or any other loved one for that matter. I have heard good things from other in the past about Harper-Ridgeview but I know I will be chosing them for any future services I might need. Thank you all, again, so much for your compassion.read more

On May 22, 2020, following a bout of pneumonia, my 94 year old mother-in-law's health suddenly declined and my husband (her son) moved her from the hospital in Puyallup to her daughter's home in Sequim, WA. My mother-in-law entered into hospice care the very next day with Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County who were amazingly helpful and caring. My widowed mother-in-law's pre-paid cemetery plot is located in Lynnwood but our family wanted to make funeral arrangements in Sequim so they could handle everything from where she was living at the time.A week after moving my mother-in-law to Sequim, my husband and I scheduled a meeting with Mark Gustafson at Sequim Valley Funeral Chapel to make funeral arrangements. We had never met Mark before and chose him mainly based on the online reviews and we are thankful that we did.Mark was extremely knowledgeable and walked us through the necessary steps to cover the items not already paid for. We finalized everything necessary. We went from there to visit my mother again before driving back home to Puyallup.Two days later, my mother-in-law passed away. Even though our family knew that her health was declining rapidly, we didn't know she would pass away so quickly, only eights days into hospice care and only two days after we finalized the funeral arrangements. We know that God had a hand in all of this.We are beyond thankful to Mark Gustafson, who handled the pick up, care and transportation to Lynnwood and coordination with the Lynnwood cemetery. On top of that, he also collected the doctor signature and ordered the death certificates. There are so many steps involved in funeral arrangements and Mark's 40+ years of experience were evident in his excellent handling of my mother-in-law. Just three days after my mother-in-law's passing we met Mark Gustafson in Lynnwood at the cemetery for the interment and immediate burial. He had the original death certificates to give us then. It was such a relief to know Mark had everything handled for our family.It was also much less expensive to have Sequim Valley Funeral Chapel handle the funeral arrangements instead of the the cemetery where my mother had prepaid for her plot she shares with my father who had passed in 1985.It has come to my attention that any cemetery and/or funeral home associated with Dignity Memorial, which is a huge corporation, will inevitably charge more money and the Lynnwood cemetery where my mother was buried is part of Dignity Memorial. Their estimate of funeral expenses was much higher than what we paid to Sequim Valley Funeral Chapel. I learned a lot from this experience. Prior to this experience, I was not aware that someone could pay for funeral expenses separate from cemetery expenses from two different companies as this was all new to me. I hope by leaving this review, I have helped inform another family to prepare early and absolutely place your trust in Mark Gustafson and his staff at Sequim Valley Funeral Chapel, a part of Harper-Ridgeview Funeral Chapel of Port Angeles. I know other families would find a sense of relief knowing that their final arrangements were completely arranged and paid for so that the family left behind does not have to go through the stressful time and expense of making those decisions at the time a loved one passes away. It has sure inspired my husband and me to make sure all of our funeral arrangements are finalized and paid for now so our grown children don't have to deal with this at that time.Leslie Fenskeread more

I recently had a very bad experience with a local Veterinarian who was supposed to cremate my beloved dog he was my best friend and I wanted the best for him as he had given me his best his whole life I was shocked when I called to see if I could pick him up if he was back yet and they told me he hadn't even been sent and they didn't care. We called Harper Ridgeview and talked to Darren and Mark and explained what had happened to us they told us to bring him right away and they would take care of everything and they did. We couldn't have had a better out come from this experience they promise he would be back to us as soon as possible and he was. If you need help at the end of your pets life please call and ask for Mark or Darren you wont be disappointed they work with local Veterinarians and charities and will do everything in their power to make your loss easier. We thankyou for everything you did for us and we will be recommending you to everyone we know that might need your services and we will be using you in future with our other pets or family members.read more

We had a good experience with Harper Ridgeview pet cremation from the moment I made the first phone call. They were sensitive to our needs and worked with us during this difficult time of decision making. I appreciated that during this COVID crisis they are donating pet cremations to Animal non-profits and I couldn't think of a better way to honor our old dog.read more

On October 8th my wife and I had to put our dog (daughter) down. It was so very difficult to have that done. I was told about the private pet cremation service that Harper Ridgeview offers. i made contact with them and they were so very nice and helpful. The woman that helped us was very helpful, and very understanding. She made the whole process very easy. I also have other friends that have used their services, and they also say how wonderful Harper Ridgeview was for them as well. They really helped making my worst day and turning it into a better day. To this day I still look up and still talk with our baby girl "Sara Lee Seavey". Thank you Harper Ridgeview.read more

When our 19 week ultrasound revealed no heartbeat, we were shocked and unsure if what to do next. We made all the necessary phone calls, including one to Harper-Ridgeview. From the first phone call, to picking up the body, to sending him off for autopsy, and finally cremation, Erick made us feel informed and cared for. He was excellent with communication. We could not be more thankful for his time, effort, and compassion. Thank you for making this crazy time, a little more straightforward and easy!read more
