The Edmond Economic Development Authority (EEDA) recently featured Matthews Funeral Home and Cremation Service in the July 2016 issue of EEDA’s newsletter, The Arrow. The Arrow is a monthly newsletter emailed to approximately 2,000 subscribers. Featured businesses also receive a commemorative arrow to recognize their participation.

“The featured business portion of The Arrow was created as an outlet for the EEDA to further support and promote the Edmond business community,” said Janet Yowell, EEDA executive director. “Matthews Funeral Home & Cremation Service recently marked 16 years in business and we were happy to feature such a long-standing Edmond business.”

Matthews Funeral Home and Cremation Service is locally owned and operated by Randy and Barbara Matthews. The funeral home opened in June 2000 and currently employs six Licensed Funeral Directors/Embalmers, four Licensed Apprentices and a receptionist as well as eight part time staff members to work funerals.

“We are honored to have served Edmond for 16 years,” said Randy Matthews. “As a locally owned and operated business, we appreciated the opportunity to share our story with the readers of The Arrow.”
