Kerr Mortuary was established in 1915 by John "Frank" Kerr. The funeral home was owned and operated by the Kerr Family until it was purchased by the Stiles and Roberts families in 1997.

Serving the families of Modoc County and beyond with respect and dignity continues to be the tradition at Kerr Mortuary. Conveniently located in downtown Alturas, the warm and comfortable chapel accommodates moderate-sized groups for funeral services.
