Riverside Funeral Homes of Albuquerque and Los Lunas are proud to serve your family with affordable dignity. What sets us apart? When you call Riverside Funeral Home, you will speak with a kind, helpful person that will make sure your family will receive the highest quality care possible. An answering service is not used; twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, one of our own staff will answer your call and questions. We also have our own on-site crematory eliminating the need of third party involvement, thus helping us keep costs down and passing that savings onto you. Riverside Funeral Homes are locally owned and operated by Mr. Charles M. Finegan. Charles has been in business in New Mexico for over sixteen years, and is dual licensed in both New Mexico and Texas. This means that our staff does not have to answer to a “corporate office”. Charles has owned and operated an International Mortuary Shipping business; we are experts at shipping your family's loved one to Mexico or any other International destination. We accept all pre-need insurance policies regardless of where they have been funded. In most cases, we have been able to save our families money at a time when they need it the most. We know you have a choice when it comes to Funeral Service, we will strive to be that choice.

Dear Selma & Mr. McKinnis:We want to thank you for all of your help and goodness. May our Lord always watch over you! Again thank you from the bottom of my family's heart. The Family of Diana Sandoval

Very, very pleased with Riverside Funeral Home. The staff treated my family and I with nothing but kindness and respect. Chris Trujillo was the Funeral Director that took care of us and never lost focus on our needs and was very sympathetic and caring during the entire process. We were a little worried after reading some of the past reviews but after prices shopping we found this funeral home to be the lowest around...The service was top notch and would HIGHLY recommend this establishment to EVERYONE!   Sincerely, Manuel Apodaca

Dear Barbara, Thank you for all of your help in dealing with Arthur Montoya's funeral. You made a difficult process much easier. We appreciate your kindness.Warmly, The Montoya Family

Mr. Baca, We, the family of Farrell Watson, would like to thank you for your assistance during the difficult days, after he passed away this past June. Your knowledgeable support smoothed the way to his cremation and allowed for our family to plan and execute our own services. His remains were scattered at a small mountain cemetery near Fort Stanton on Sunday, September 15th with family present. We believe you were also aware that our mother, JoAnn DeBrian, died  on August 28th of this year, and her remains and cremation were handled by Mr. Medina at Riverside. What we have not told you is that she, unaware of our father's plans, also wanted some of her ashes scattered at the same small cemetery where our father wanted his placed. Or that she died on their wedding anniversary although they had not been married for 50 years! We scattered both sets of ashes at the same time and location. Some things you just can't make up..... Thank you again, Steve Watson & Brooke Richards, MIke Watson & Family and John Watson & Holly

To Chris, Thank you for everything you're wonderful. Keep "Becky in your prayers. Thank you, Darlene & Billy Sanchez

Selma & Barbara, Thank you so much for being so courteous & kind during our time of need. You all went above and beyond & we thank God for you. God bless you all. Antionette & Melvin

Dear Paul Baca, My husband and I were recently at the funeral home with the request of the cremation for our baby boy Ryker. We were able to get one urn, a necklace urn and we planted several trees with his ashes in the mix. We just wanted to thank you for that opportunity as well as your quickness and understanding. In a short time we had to do a lot and with your help it was all the more simple words can not express our gratitude. We will truly never forget this experience. Thank you again, Heather and Aaron Bourns

Due to Danielle's efforts, it became possible to have the funeral on a beautiful day that everyone who attended will always fondly remember! Preparation for the events at the church service and the following movement to the cemetery was handled flawlessly by Chris and Felicia Trujillo, and we want to again express our thanks for the professional manner in which everything that needed to be done was accomplished!
