Expanding Focus for Funeral Consumer Society
We have always held a commitment to funeral consumer education and support. As an expansion of that commitment,
We have made a decision to shift away
from our past focus on Contract Providers.
Contracting with a limited number of providers does not serve the consumer as well as having information about all providers. Pricing and ownership information will be available later this summer on our website as a pricing spreadsheet, and we are also available to talk through options with you by phone or email.
We are most grateful for the excellent service provided to our members over the years by:
Bohlender Funeral Home in Ft. Collins, Cappadona Funeral Home in Colorado Springs, Stork Family Mortuary in Lakewood, and M.P. Murphy & Associates Funeral Directors in Boulder.
GOOD WORDS FROM ACTUAL CUSTOMERS
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Just a note to let you know that one of your life members, Roger Lawrence Williams, Laramie, died on July 4. Upon his death, I inquired in my capacity as Roger’s personal representative with the local funeral home as to its fees for immediate cremation and was quoted “about $2,800.” I then called Bohlender’s in Ft. Collins and was quoted the exact fee listed in your most recent newsletter: $995. Both Bohlenders were extraordinarily friendly, helpful, and just plain decent. They charged an extra $70 for transporting the body to Ft. Collins; can’t imagine what the local operator would have charged. I wish more people knew about the Funeral Consumer Society, though I’m pretty sure that an acquaintance here in Laramie will join the Society, or at least pre-pay a funeral with Bohlender’s. Since I gave my last quarterly newsletter to my acquaintances, I want to make sure that your mailing address is still 4101 E. Hampden in order to send a memorial check.

Editor's Note: our mailing address has changed; it is now: P.O. Box 4743; Greenwood Village, CO 80155-4743.
To Whom It May Concern,
I would just like to tell you how pleased I am with Jim Stork's handling of my wife's funeral arrangements. He was very caring, helpful, reasonable on prices, and just a good guy to deal with. I'm glad I am a member of the Funeral Consumer Society which enabled me to save thousands of dollars in funeral expenses compared to other funeral homes. It's interesting to note that most other funeral home operators never heard about the Funeral Consumer Society when I mentioned it. Thank you you for providing an excellent service to the citizens of Colorado. I've reached out to USAA Insurance and Porter Hospice to make them aware of your organization.
Thank you for your progressive and intelligent information. It made final arrangements a few years ago for my Aunt Pegg stress-free (through Stork's ❤️)...
On June 7th my mom, Lillian, passed... I'm so grateful for you and Storks... it's a blessing to be prepared.
Supportive help for a gentle transition on a final journey...
