Our History



C. P. Niswonger began his service to the families of Deschutes County in 1911. The foundation that he built his reputation upon - total reliability - remains an integral part of Niswonger-Reynolds today.

The people at Niswonger-Reynolds Funeral Home understand the needs of Central Oregon residents - after all, they're members of the community, too. Their combination of professional counseling and hometown understanding results in the finest service available.

Keeping in mind over a century of tradition - and with a progressive outlook toward the future— We pledge to continue meeting families' needs as long as we're privileged to serve.
