We are grateful for every opportunity we have to serve our neighbors in this unique and special place.
McNary-Moore Funeral Service was the place to be on Sunday, February 9, when we hosted a Valentine Pet Photo Shoot Fundraiser for a new non-profit organization helping feral and stray cats in our area, Paws for the Cause: Colusa Community Cat Coalition. More than 20 dogs and one cat came out to don their Valentine best and pose for photos. Some were timid, some were all ham, but a good time was to be had by the pets and their people along with our staff and the sponsors and volunteers that came to help. The animals enjoyed gourmet treats donated by one sponsor while their people enjoyed coffee punch, scones and gourmet cupcakes courtesy of another sponsor. It is always fun when we are able to use our location for community events, this was no exception.
McNary-Moore Funeral Service is proud to be hosting a fundraiser for the local non-profit “Paws for the Cause: Colusa Community Cat Coalition.” The purpose of the charity is the humane trapping, altering and re-homing where possible of feral, stray and abandoned cats in our community. Colusa County has an unusually high number of homeless cats that fall prey to dogs, cars, starvation and illness. They can also infect domestic pet cats with dangerous diseases. They are prolific breeders which is why spay/neutering them is so important. McNary-Moore invites you to participate in the Valentines Pet Photo Shoot Fundraiser.
Because of our unique role in shepherding families through the process of grief, we know that we are more than just a business; we are a key part of the local community, and that’s a role we take seriously. We are honored to serve our neighbors during seasons of mourning and loss, and to provide comfort through uncertain times.
Since this community has been so supportive of us over the years, we believe strongly in giving back, remaining visible, and doing our part to promote the community’s wellbeing. We encourage our employees to volunteer their time in ways that serve their neighbors, and we enjoy working closely with local caregivers, veterans, first responders, clergy, hospices, and charities. In short, we empower our employees to make a positive difference in the local community.
Giving back is part of what we do, and community involvement is intrinsic to our business model. We are grateful for every opportunity we have to serve our neighbors in this unique and special place.
McNary-Moore put the FUN back into Funeral Service on Halloween 2019 when we hosted our first "Nightmare on 5th Street" Safe Night Halloween Party for children between the ages of 0 - 13. We entertained them with lots of good food, starting with plenty of candy and cupcakes, and then they worked their way into mummy dogs, chips, juice, apples and caramel dip and lastly a way-too-healthy veggie platter with dip.

On December 3, 2019, McNary-Moore Funeral Service held their 19th annual memorial service for the families served in the last 24 months. This year was different as we changed it from a Candlighting Ceremony to a "Tree of Remembrance" where families received a ceramic peace dove ornament in honor of their loved one. In addition to this, we had protestant and Catholic clergy, a grief and bereavement expert and the presence of our local VFW to lead the National Anthem and do a Flag Folding Ceremony in honor of all of the Veterans lost that we have served. We look forward to this service every year because it gives us an opportunity to catch up with the families we bond with during their time with us. It is so important that information about the grieving process be spread especially during an emotional time like the Holidays. We thank each and every family that again put their trust in us by attending our memorial and for all the folks that helped put it together and make it a success. A special thank you to our ladies from the County Shelter and another young lady who brought in their grief support dogs to partner with our grief support dog, Miss Mo in providing love and comfort to those in attendance. I will end this post with a link to the Veteran's video we shared. As well as the family's served video.
As we approach the holiday season, it is important to us to provide as much support as possible to those in the community grieving the loss of a loved one.
Tuesday, December 3, 2019 7:00 p.m. McNary-Moore will be holding a special holiday remembrance service for the families we have served and anyone else in the community struggling with loss. The focus will be on "Getting Through The Holidays," and will include a grief specialist, Protestant and Catholic clergy along with music and a special video memorial presentation.
Families will be given a beautiful Peace Dove ornament from our tree as a keepsake and children will be able to decorate wooden dove ornaments to take home in honor of their loved one.
Refreshments will immediately follow and you will have time to reconnect with each other, our staff and possibly make new friends who are experiencing the same type of loss you are.
There is no cost to you for this event, but it is invaluable because of the information you will take away from it. Feel free to bring family or friends, our doors are open to all.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact Nadine.Benz@carriageservices.com or at 530-458-2111. I am happy to help any way I can.
Our staff works to accommodate your needs. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if we can help with anything.
