Walton’s Funerals & Cremations
Honored at “Family Owned Business Awards” Program

Reno, NV (May 16, 2013) – Walton’s Funerals & Cremations was recently honored at the Family Owned Business Awards program, sponsored by Nevada Business Magazine and Nevada State Bank. Though the event is three years old, this is the first year it was held in Reno in addition to Las Vegas. There were almost 500 nominees statewide, with 30 finalists in each of 10 categories, and one winner per category. Walton’s won in the “Wisdom of Age” category, for companies that have been in business for 20 years or more.


"The company is a huge part of who I am and who my father is," explained Tammy Dermody, in explaining how the business, which was started by her father, Ed McCaffery in 1959, had stayed in the same family for more than 50 years. "It’s not just a profession for me, it’s a calling, so it’s easy to keep it in the family. We are 100% committed to the industry and the company. We have helped so many families in the area, it is expected of us to always be here."
