History & Staff

Our History

When we sit down with a family, we have just one goal: to create a fitting, memorable and affordable service for their loved one. Together, we explore the wide variety of services and products available, as well as a wealth of creative ideas and suggestions.

Together, we'll design a memorial or funeral service that suits their needs now, and in the future. Families who come to us know that years from now, they will have deep peace-of-mind because in coming to us, they've done their best to honor their loved one.

Rivera Funeral Home of McAllen was established in 1990 and has since been serving the Rio Grande Valley with compassionate and quality service.

Rivera Funeral Home of Mission was established in 1992 and has since been serving the Mission, Alton, La Joya and neighboring communities.
