About Us

Our mission is to change the funeral industry and people's perspective of it.

Crescent Tide Funeral & Cremation was started by Verlin (licensed funeral director and graduate of the University of Minnesota) and Lisa Stoll (licensed funeral pre-arranger and graduate of MSU Mankato), to be a different kind of funeral and cremation service. We do not have a facility that can hold funeral and memorial services. Instead, we coordinate with churches, nursing home chapels and cemetery chapels to hold these services. What we do provide is a comfortable environment where the family of the deceased can make the final arrangements. We also have on-site preparation facilities and a private viewing room where the immediate family can spend time in private with the deceased in lieu of, or in addition to, a public viewing/funeral prior to cremation or burial.
