1955-2015: 60 years of continuous service to area families

It's been 60 years since Eldred and Dorthy Penttila began Penttila's Chapel by The Sea.  And while some changes have occurred, one key element has not: we are still the locally owned and operated death care service provider.

Our "small town service" equates to answering the phone personally "24/7"; meeting with families one on one by professional staff who know the area; and outstanding facilities and logistics to meet every need.  We are always available to discuss individual situations and questions without any pressure or hustle.

Faced with the necessity of leaving the local area for medical care, "Penttila's care" is available as needed; from Astoria to Longview, Raymond to Cathlamet, Portland to Seattle and points between and beyond.  Our personal local service makes the entire process much easier all the while giving peace of mind knowing that everything is being handled locally. 

Dan is a licensed pre-need insurance agent.  These policies and plans have several unique features including savings and estate planning considerations.  Dan can answer your questions by phone, in the office, or at your residence--all without obligation.

Thank you for taking the time to visit.  We trust you will locate the information needed and if not feel free to contact us directly at any time.
