Crippen Mortuary was founded in 1928 by William & Ethel Crippen and has been in operation continuously at its present location in La Crescenta, California. In 2005 Crippen assumed the pre-needs of Eckerman-Heisman Funeral service. In 2007 Crippen opened an arrangement office in Santa Clarita. As one of the only independently owned and operated funeral homes in the Foothills, we strive to provide the finest, most compassionate care to every family we serve. For more than 81 years, we have proven that it is possible to provide affordable funeral & cremation services without sacrificing quality.
