Our Story

First in Caring. First in Service.



The Messinger family have been the caretakers of a long tradition serving families within the community during their time of need. In 1959 Paul and Cora Messinger opened their first funeral home in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale on what was originally the family dairy farm.

Today, we offer a complete range of funeral and cremation services delivered with the highest standards of care, compassion and dignity. Because Messinger Mortuaries is family-owned and operated, we are committed to the satisfaction of the families that we serve. There are currently four generations within the business to help carry on Paul Messinger’s philosophies and values. We pride ourselves on providing extra services and support, and doing whatever we can to make a painful time more bearable. Our dedication to families has made us one of the most respected funeral homes in Arizona.

We hope that you will trust us to help your family through a time of loss, as so many families have done over the last half-century. We are here for you, any hour of the day or night.

Let our family serve your family.

Paul and Cora Messinger
