Trust When It's Needed Most

Since 1956, Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary, together with our dedicated staff, has been serving the community of Billings and the greater Yellowstone County area.

We are experts in creating meaningful services, whether cremation or burial; a formal traditional service or an informal gathering; either in our facility, at your church or other location of your choosing. Since there are so many ways to honor someone's life, we encourage you to contact us to see how we can assist you.

Memorial Day Service of Remembrance

Please join us at 11:00 AM Monday May 30th at Yellowstone Valley Memorial Park, 3605 Grand Avenue.

Because of road construction the cemetery will be accessible only from the Shiloh end of Grand Avenue. Please watch for detour signs.
