San Diego, CA – In the city of San Diego, where sunshine and perfect weather reign, Savannah Turhan is quietly making a difference through her unique and compassionate business, Orchid Cremations. Owning and operating this heartfelt endeavor with her husband, Savannah has carved out a niche in the funeral services industry by offering simple cremation with a traditional, personalized feel. The cremation rate in California is expected to reach 70% in the next few years.

A Personal Touch in Every Service

Savannah Turhan, president and owner of Orchid Cremations, shared her motivations and the story behind the business’s name. “Orchids are symbols of love and remembrance,” Savannah explains. “I chose the name because I wanted our services to reflect that sentiment. When someone passes, orchids can signify ongoing love for the departed.”

Savannah offers more than just cremation and funeral services; she provides a caring hand through the intricate paperwork and emotional processing that comes with loss. “We ensure everything is managed seamlessly during such a hard time,” she assures.

Transparency and Accessibility

One element that makes Orchid Cremations stand out from the competition is their upfront pricing. “All of our prices are displayed openly on our home page,” Savannah notes. “You don’t have to dig through our website to find what you’re looking for. Everything is right there.” This transparency is part of her mission to provide straightforward, trustworthy service to every client.

Savannah’s previous career as an EMT ignited her passion for this line of work. “As an EMT, I could only help so much. I often wondered what happened to the families of those who didn’t make it,” she says. This concern led her to mortuary school and eventually to starting her own business. Her firsthand experience with the intricacies of end-of-life care, particularly when her great aunt was in hospice, underscored the importance of compassionate, comprehensive support for grieving families.

Rooted in the Community

Though Savannah has been in San Diego for five years, her dedication to the local community is strong. From volunteering with Garden of Innocence, which provides burials for abandoned babies, to making herself available 24/7 for her clients, Savannah exemplifies dedication and empathy in both her personal and professional life.

Orchid Cremations is truly a family-operated business. “When we say family-owned and operated, we mean it. It’s just me and my husband,” Savannah emphasizes. This close-knit operation ensures personalized care that many larger businesses can’t offer.

A Vision for Growth

Even though Orchid Cremations has only been open for a short time, Savannah’s decade-long experience in the industry gives her business a solid foundation. “We’re growing and constantly looking for ways to improve our services,” she says.

As a testament to her perseverance and skill, Savannah holds multiple licenses and certifications, including those for embalming and funeral directing. These credentials, while not all required to run her business, reflect her dedication to offering the best possible service.

Embracing San Diego’s Spirit

What does Savannah love most about San Diego? “The weather. Absolutely.” With the city’s almost constant 66-degree perfection, it’s easy to see why. Outside of work, Savannah enjoys hobbies such as running, painting, and reading, activities that undoubtedly help balance her emotionally demanding career.

Savannah reflected on her broader mission. “I saw a gap that wasn’t being met—personal, one-on-one care and follow-up with families. I want to fill that gap and guarantee a compassionate experience for everyone who comes to us.”

For those in San Diego seeking a compassionate, transparent, and locally-rooted funeral service provider, Orchid Cremations stands out as a beacon of trust and care. Available around the clock, Savannah and her husband are ready to provide a helping hand whenever it’s needed.
