Our Awards - Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Homes & Crematory

Our Awards

At Spicer-Mullikin, we’re fortunate to have been honored with a variety of awards over the years both from the communities we serve and from organizations that govern our industry and recognize excellence in business.

The care, concern, and compassion we have for our families and our neighbors is always our priority. The honors we receive as a result of our commitment to others are a direct result of that. They are both appreciated and deeply humbling.



“We are absolutely thrilled that the community votes for us and supports us for these awards, and that our peers and professional organizations understand how hard we work in reaching out and making meaningful connections. Our service reflects the love of the families we serve, and we’re delighted that this resonates with others. We pledge to always care for our families and the communities in which we work.”

Matthew C. Smith, Owner, Licensed Funeral Director and Certified Crematory Operator at Spicer-Mullikin.
