At Sig’s, our staff is fully licensed, and that matters. We adhere to the highest standard of both ethical and legal practices in the state of Washington. Not all funeral services are the same, and full licensing is an important and significant difference. You can always ask to see licenses. Our commitment to the community and genuine compassion toward families are but a few of the characteristics that make us outstanding in our field. You are our top priority and this is evidenced in all who work here.
