Matthews Mortuary was previously owned by Leonard Matthews, who was the son of Nile Matthews that started Matthews Mortuary. The Mortuary is now owned by Dain Schwab from the neighboring town of Afton. The Matthews and Schwabs have had a great working relationship in the history of the two valleys. In fact, when Schwab Mortuary started in Afton, there was no licensed embalmer in the valley. Nile and Leonard would travel to Afton to do all the embalmings for Schwab Mortuary. The people in Star Valley were grateful for the excellent job they did in helping Schwab's embalm.
The Mortuary is currently own by Dain Schwab. Chad Walker is the manager of the mortuary.
