Meet Ron and Deborah Threadgill

With experience in the funeral industry since 1996, Ron and Deborah continue to help families make the best decisions in a difficult time while conserving family resources. To add that personal touch, they offer unique services to create everlasting memories and help families bridge their grief.

They have facilitated a burial at sea of casketed remains, and several out-of-town services including a service at Arlington National Cemetery. More recently they facilitated the funeral service and committal service at Willamette National Cemetery of a young Beaverton soldier killed in Afghanistan.

In addition to his funeral director’s license, Ron has been an insurance agent and an insurance consultant for over 20 years. He offers honest advice on pre-arrangements and pre-paying funeral plans. Ron’s background in estate planning complements his vast experience as a funeral director.  He has worked as a Certified Nurse’s Assistant and is very familiar with facilities and working with the staff. He has a B.A. in business and communications from Concordia University in Portland.

Before becoming a funeral director, Deborah worked in the hospice, home health and home care field as a billing specialist. With a B.A. in sociology and psychology from Rider University in New Jersey, she has a varied career as a probation officer; a counselor in a group home; retail store manager of Dilettante Chocolates in Seattle, WA, and a teacher in a private school.

With their extensive experience working with people, and as the business owners and decision makers, Deborah and Ron Threadgill can solve problems and create memories beyond the scope of the typical funeral home.

Threadgill Memorial Services takes great effort to honor and support a family who has lost a loved one! It is important to understand “family culture” and family dynamics while making choices and considering options. When making decisions, it is important to note that there is not an economic requirement for services to meet each family member’s needs. What is required is communication, consideration and respect. We honor and usher the individuals and families through this difficult process and assist them in bridging their future needs and current feelings with the present. They make funeral arrangements in the homes of the families we serve or a place of their choosing allowing them to be more comfortable. They facilitate funerals all over the Portland Metro area, includingWashington, Idaho, Utah and California, assisting families in staying close to their homes or the cemetery of their choice. They have transported casketed and cremated remains throughout the United States and several foreign countries.
