About Us


The Story of North Country Memorials

In 1991 I started my own business after a lifetime of having a vision of working for myself.

After a friend, who was a funeral director, suggested that I start a monument business I began to explore the idea. Something important that we noticed right away was the lack of monument dealers on the main route from Watertown to Utica. Initially, my intentions were to sell gravestones and set them in cemeteries. I didn’t know the trade at all and was totally ignorant as to the equipment that was needed. Two of my strong suits at this point in the journey were my lack of knowledge about the trade and also the fact that I had become convinced that I was stepping in the direction that God had for me. I wasn’t a practical person but rather, I was very visionary. Although I couldn’t clearly see all the way to the level we’re at today, I could see that I could start a business and that it would provide for my family

My first sale came in the fall of 1991. Over the next year I became more educated about tombstones and the trade that I was entering into. I began realizing how in-depth this industry could be. I then became open to the possibility of learning how to sandblast the lettering and design the ornamentation on the gravestones. Later I would also begin hand etching on black granite monuments.

We had a difficult start but I felt sure we could grow this business.  I really cared about my customers and wanted them to get the best that we could offer. We found a slogan that comes straight from our hearts: “North Country Memorials, where you feel taken care of, not taken advantage of.”  It helps guide me in all my decisions.

We have a location with indoor and outdoor displays in Lewis county. We also serve Oneida county, Syracuse, Watertown, Utica and Rome.

We continue to be thankful for all the years we have had serving this community and look forward to many more.
