Columbia Funeral Home has served the Rainier Valley and greater Seattle since 1907. It is still located at its original site in Southeast Seattle at the corner of Rainier Avenue and South Alaska Street.
To many, Columbia is a Seattle landmark, recognized for its well-kept building and immaculate landscaping. Many Seattleites know Columbia Funeral Home for its traditional Christmas display that annually attracts thousands to the Rainier district. Columbia is the oldest business in southeast Seattle and the oldest member of the Chamber of Commerce. Over the years the business has been very active in the community, especially in sports. Columbia is well known in the Rainier Valley for sponsoring successful teams in baseball, hockey, bowling and Little League.
For our Veterans: The Funeral Honors rendered to you or your veteran will be determined by the status of the veteran. The type of Funeral Honors may be Full Military Honors, 7 Person Detail or a Standard Honors Team Detail.
At least one of the funeral honors detail will be from the Armed Force in which the deceased veteran served. Taps may be played by a bugler or, if a bugler is not available, by using a quality recorded version. Military Funeral Honor Teams may act as Pall Bearers if requested by the veteran/family.
