Fuiten, Rose & Hoyt Funeral Home in Forest Grove and Vernonia began as Fuiten Mortuary Chapel in 1953 by James B. Fuiten. The original building was located in the 1900 block of Cedar Street in Forest Grove and in the mid 1970’s moved next door to the former Chet’s Market location, where it is located today. In 1957, he purchased the mortuary in Vernonia which was operated by Bud Busch for many years. Jim retired in 1984 after serving in the funeral industry for thirty-two years.

In June of 1984, Derrel and Deann Rose, former staff members of James B. Fuiten for eighteen years, purchased the Fuiten Mortuary Chapels in Forest Grove and Vernonia. They owned and operated the Chapels for eight years, until 1992 when Derrel’s health began failing and Jeffrey Hoyt, who had worked for the Rose's since 1984, purchased the two chapels. In 1998 the name was changed to Fuiten, Rose & Hoyt Funeral Home in Forest Grove and Vernonia, which he continues to operate today.

Forest Grove Memorial Chapel is a business with a long history in the downtown area of Forest Grove and is one of Oregon’s oldest funeral homes. The business traces its beginnings back to a carpenter named Smith who made coffins. The initial location of the establishment was between 22nd and 23rd Avenue on A Street in 1870. Mr. Barnett J. Roe joined Smith and the business became known as Forest Grove Undertakers and Coffin Makers. When Smith died in 1876, Roe became sole owner of the firm. Roe then moved the business to his furniture store, the present site of Brodersen’s Furniture Company on Main Street. J. S. Buxton joined the business as a partner, and Roe then sold his interest in the funeral home to Victor Limber in 1884. Buxton then sold his interest in the business to a Mr. Nelson, in 1885. History books are sketchy on Nelson and little is known about the gentleman.

In 1912, Buxton bought out the interests of Limber & Nelson and moved the funeral home to a site across the street from the Sloan house on Pacific Avenue. Seven years later, in 1919, J.S. Buxton purchased the Sloan house, which was then a hotel, and moved across the street with his funeral parlor. In 1921, H. W. Prickett joined him as business partner. Ill health overcame Buxton and he retired in 1928, at that time, selling the funeral home to Prickett. The business was then known as the Forest Grove Undertaking Company.

The building was built in 1935 at 1920 Pacific Avenue in Forest Grove. When Mr. Prickett died in 1944, his wife Anna became the proprietor. The name of the business was changed to Prickett’s Mortuary in 1953, and Fern Prickett, Anna’s daughter, became owner in 1960 upon the death of her mother. On September 1, 1964, Fern sold the business to Bob and Jane Schneider and the business name was changed to Forest Grove Memorial Chapel. They owned and operated the business for over thirty years. In 1996, the Schneider’s sold it to Jeffrey. He has continued the fine tradition and service at this location for the past ten years. In January of 2006 the building was sold and they moved the business to the Fuiten, Rose & Hoyt Funeral Chapel at 2308 Pacific Avenue in Forest Grove, (Corner of Cedar and Pacific, just four blocks to the west).
