Herring-Groseclose Funeral Home

February 2023 Member of the Month

The Herring Funeral Home was established in 1875 in Walla Walla, WA. It was built by the Ennis family and became the Marshall-Calloway and Hennessey Funeral Home.

Norman S. Herring began as an after school errand boy in 1925, as a sixteen year old driver and ultimately became a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer in 1937. Norman assumed ownership of the funeral home in 1950 and at that point, the business was known as the Herring Funeral Home.

The Funeral Home, now known as the Herring Groseclose Funeral Home, resides within the same structure with many renovations and improvements over past years. The Herring Groseclose Funeral Home has always been a full service funeral home and the eldest of its kind in the state of Washington.

Currently, the Herring Groseclose Funeral Home is in it's 3rd generation of Herring family ownership and remains dedicated to the families within Walla Walla and the Lower Columbia Basin.
