Jerns Funeral Chapel opens Lynden location

The Bellingham Business Journal

A third Jerns Funeral Chapel & Cremation Services location recently opened at 6521 Guide Meridian, just north of East King Tut Road and four miles south of Lynden.

Owner Brad Bytnar said he acquired Valley Funeral & Cremation Service from Steve Titus earlier this month and renamed the funeral home.

“This makes it more convenient for many north-county families to meet with us,” Bytnar said. “They’ll still have access to our on-site crematorium, our large chapel and our small chapel in Bellingham, providing families a wide range of options for remembering their loved ones.”

Robert Parsons, a lifelong Whatcom County resident who lives in Lynden and graduated from Meridian High School, will manage the new Jerns Funeral Chapel & Cremation Services.

Jerns Funeral Chapel, founded in 1887, is located at 800 E. Sunset Drive in Bellingham and has a second location at 464 8th St. in Blaine. For more information, call Jerns Funeral Chapel at (360) 734-0070 or visit
