From Our Family to Yours…

Understanding the needs and wishes of area families takes a special kind of understanding; one which is nurtured over years of knowing what is most important. The Pohlman’s Mortuary tradition has been committed to the Russell, Natoma and surrounding areas since 1898. At Pohlman~Varner~Peeler Mortuary, the understanding of family care comes from years of working with families, being part of our community, and responding to each family’s needs as if they were our own. We are committed to the total care for your family and friends in order to help create not just a funeral service but to create a cherished memory. And remember, day or night, we are always here for you.
