Our Mission and History
A time to remember and a time to honor a life. This is what we believe in.
Solie Funeral home and crematory has been serving the Everett community and surrounding counties for over 70 years.
In 1940, Lloyd Solie announced that a mortuary would be built at 3301 Colby Avenue in Everett, Washington. Lloyd and his father, H.J Solie, an immigrant pioneer of Everett, worked with architects Alvin Erickson and Howard Tollefson to draw plans and direct the construction. Solie Funeral Home opened its doors to serve families that same year. Lloyd was well known for his good heart, kind ways, and his genuine tenderness to grieving families and the tradition continues with the second generation. Considered an Everett pioneer, he is well known for bringing his Norwegian heritage into the community. In 1974, Lloyd became business partners with Paul Lorentzen. Lloyd Solie passed away October 16, 1996 and Paul Lorentzen July 22,1999. His family continues the long line of family traditions.
Solie Funeral Home and Crematory continues to be the only family owned and operated funeral home in Everett providing traditional, contemporary and hometown funeral services. Our Funeral Home has been committed to serving the community’s needs for funeral and memorial services for 71 years. If your family prefers a formal service with quiet atmosphere, you will find it with us. If a more casual service in an intimate setting setting is preferred, you will find that too.
