Our Story

Savurn Memorials opened in May 2018 and is a family-owned business, operated by Mark, Shari, Zachary and Alexander Williams. In addition, it is a veteran-owned business with both Mark and Alexander having served in the military.  We are local residents who have lived in the Norwich area for over 50 years.

We began our business as a memorial to our daughter/sister Savannah who was involved in a fatal car accident on December 20, 2016, while preparing to leave her college campus to travel home for the holidays. As you can imagine it was a complete shock to our family.

Never having to deal with something this tragic before, we catapulted into having to make major decisions in a very quick time period (such as cremation vs. open/closed casket, what type of urn, what day to have the service, etc.). It all was such a blur. After a couple of months, we were faced with selecting the perfect headstone to memorialize our daughter.

We realized we were in a perfect position to give back to you, someone in a similar situation of losing a loved one. It was decided we would provide a safe, comfortable and compassionate environment in which you can work through the process of selecting the perfect way to memorialize your loved one without pressure.

Therefore, we decided to open Savurn Memorials, LLC as a tribute to Savannah. Located in Norwich, NY we will serve the residents in the surrounding communities.

Our family looks forward to serving you in your time of need.
