Sunset Mesa Funeral Directors has brought its "Our Family Taking Care of Your Family" philosophy to Delta with the opening of the Delta Funeral Home. The Delta office is located in a beautifully decorated office suite at 45 West 3rd Street in Delta (the building formerly occupied by Delta Hardware).
Sunset Mesa Funeral Directors opened in Montrose seven years ago. A two-acre lot includes a funeral home, chapel, on-site crematory and memorial park.
The organization was founded by Greg Huffer in the fall of 2004. In August 2006, Huffer was joined by Megan Hess. She became the sole owner in the fall of 2011.
Hess moved to Montrose County in 1999, when she met and married Montrose native Dustin Hess, an electrical contractor. They lived on the family farm on California Mesa until March 2011 when they moved to Montrose with their new daughter, Peyton.
Hess explained the Delta office is a convenient meeting place for clients from Delta, the Cedaredge area or the North Fork Valley. She plans to rent office space for a year or so, then build a full-size facility in the Delta area.
Hess is proud of her family's involvement in the business. She believes clients feel more comfortable when they find out they're dealing with "real people" who provide a personal touch to the burial or cremation and compassionate care long after the funeral service is concluded.
"We recognize that each life has left an indelible mark on many people and each life should be celebrated and memorialized in the most fitting manner," Hess said.
