Sundberg-Olpin Mortuary is a fourth-generation business. Edwin Dee Olpin founded Olpin Family Mortuary in the late 1800's, and was one of the three men in Utah Valley to be educated in the art of mortuary science. His career as a mortician actually chose him, as a result of his serving in the position of Bishop for the LDS Church in Pleasant Grove for many years. When ward members passed away, Bishop Olpin was contacted to assist the family and prepare the body for burial. His responsibilities also included building the caskets while his wife, Inez, would prepare the clothing and lining for the caskets. Edwin Dee received his formal education in Salt Lake City. He then opened the first funeral home in Pleasant Grove. Many years later his son Lewis Olpin would join his father in the family business. These outstanding men would serve their community in many ways and for many years.With the threat of World War II, a young couple in love decided to marry and on June 11, 1943 Elwood Sundberg married LuJean Olpin in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. After serving in the US Marines Elwood Sundberg returned to join the family business. He was a member of the first graduating class of Mortuary Science school in Los Angeles, California. On a dirt road in Orem, also known as State Street, a plot of land was purchased for the outrageous price of $400.00! In 1946 the Olpin-Sundberg Mortuary was completed and began serving the community. It was the first full-service funeral home in Orem. Business licenses were not required until 1953, and on March 9, 1953 the funeral home became one of the first licensed businesses in Orem.Over the years our community has grown from a bedroom town of Provo, to become the beautiful prospering city it is today. The funeral home has also grown with the times. In the early years LuJean would work hard to keep the children quiet during viewings and funerals, which were held in the Sundberg's front living room/slumber room where a bed was kept for viewings. From humble beginnings in 1946, a 2,000 square-foot funeral home has grown to an over 27,000 square-foot state of the art funeral home. In 1989 Kelly C. Sundberg, the youngest son of elwood and LuJean, graduated from Cypress College of Mortuary Science in Cypress, California. He then returned to work as the fourth generation funeral director in the Olpin-Sundberg family business. He and his wife, Teri, who was also graduated from Cypress College of Mortuary science, own and operate the Sundberg-Olpin Mortuary at this time. The business had continued to see growth, with the latest addition of the Cascade Chapel completed in 2000.As a family, we strive to continue the tradition of personal service, integrity, and attention to detail that was established many years ago. It is our goal to meet the needs of the families we serve and make this life's transition a peaceful and meaningful time.
