What a great lady! When we think of Mary Ellen we are filled with fun and pleasant memories. The blue ribbon jumpers she helped Ronnie and I with to enter in the Pend Oreille County Fair, the trip to Canada, just playing at her house since I was nine years old holds many special times, the "Grizzly Hunt" of KUBS radio, all the yummy birthday desserts, the 50th birthday wall hanging, and decorating the Christmas cookies we did this past year are just some of the things we hold very dear. She was like a second Mom to me. We will always miss her. With all our love, Kim and Leroy

I attended an open casket viewing for a very close grandmother of mine at molthen bell funeral home. I and several very close relatives all agreed that the person in the casket did not even resemble her mother at all and to this day this daughter still does not feel she has closure. My understanding was that the funeral home had an intern that was doing the body preparation. I myself to this day say that the person in the casket the day of the funeral was not my grandmother. No resemblance whatsoever to any of the pictures posted. I do not recommend this funeral home to anyone.

The Beggs family are the nicest, most considerate people that we have ever dealt with. We had always patronized the old firm in town that has been in business for generations. We are glad that we made the right choice this time. Attentiive,compassionate, courteous, professional and first class. We wish that would expand into the Columbia County market.

Ridgewood - Queens, New York
Even though it was an extremely difficult time for our family, our experience at Morton Funeral Home/Ridgewood Chapels, was extraordinary. From my first phone call with the Funeral Director, Mr. Lanza up to and including the morning at the gravesite, the Director was compassionate, professional and generated an outstanding example of what true customer service should be. Unfortunately, I did have experiences with other funeral homes during my lifetime, and they met my expectations to a degree, but I have never had such a pleasant and comfortable and dignified experience as I and my family did at the recent wake of our beloved, departed brother and uncle. Should you need these type of services, I would highly recommend Morton/Ridgewood Chapels. I would like to thank Mr. Lanza and his Staff for meeting and exceeding our expectations!
