About Us


The Stevens Mortuary was the first structure in Pennsylvania to be built exclusively for funeral service and continues to serve the needs of today.

Our large modern visitation rooms serve the individual needs of those families that choose receiving of family and friends.

Our arrangement rooms are individualized and aid our staff to assure personal service with the utmost professional care, advice and arranging of every detail.

Original to the building, our gracious non-sectarian chapel has been a comfort to thousands of persons in private or public spiritual need.

This beautiful Serenity Garden allows family and friends a place to reflect in a peaceful surrounding.

In 1881, Joseph Stevens opened a funeral home from his furniture store in Altoona, PA. Now, over 130 years and five generations later our family is still serving the families of the Greater Altoona area. We are proud to continue the tradition of high quality service that was established over a century ago.

Stevens Mortuary is committed to providing you with personal attention and the highest level of professional assistance. We will help by guiding, educating, and supporting your family to determine the best options for a meaningful funeral experience. Our mission is to make available all the resources you need to provide your family with the most comfortable and respectful experience to honor your loved one.
