Welcome to Brenham Monument Company, a Riley-Gardner Memorial Company. My name is La Verne Kraft Krumrey. My parents owned Artesian Park in Brenham in the late 50's to the 70's. Being raised in Brenham I attended Burton schools, Blinn College & the University of Houston. I'm married to Mike, and together we have 3 children, 7 grandchildren and  have been blessed with a great-grandson. We attend St Paul Lutheran Church Rehburg of Burton where I am an usher. I believe in community and am involved in many organizations and have participated in many local events in Washington County.  I am the Charter President , Past-& Present President of The Washington County Ladies Lions Club in Brenham. I'm a member of the Burton Heritage Society, member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Somerville Lodge #245, and A Board member of the Giddings Chamber of Commerce in Giddings. In 2006 I attended the Leadership Washington County, was the 2006 Blue Blazer of the Year, and also was on the Washington Co Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors 2007 thru 2010.  I also was the 2012 Woodmen of the World Fraternalist of the Year. As Brenham Monument Company Marketing and Sales Manager, I have been serving families in their time of need over the last five years. Brenham Monument company has been serving families in East-Central Texas for over thirty years.  Our office is equiped with a state of the art computer system that allows me to provide real time drawings while our families are present.  It is our philosophy to serve each family as if they are our own. 

The Riley-Gardner Memorial Service Company is a family owned and operated business with the current ownership of Robert W. (Bob) Gardner and his son, Riley F. Gardner.  The Gardner family, in its fourth generation in Hamilton, Texas, were preceded in ownership by original owners, Bob Riley, Kenneth Gardner and Melvin Henkes, who purchased the business in 1957 from Elder Lynn Dalton.  Ken Gardner became the sole owner of the company in 1980 who was joined by his son, Bob, in the operation of the business in 1982 and began company expansion with multiple retail locations and funeral homes throughout Texas and Oklahoma.  Riley F. Gardner returned to Hamilton and the business in 2003 implementing many state-of-the-art technological advances; gaining access to increased granite market from across the globe; and increasing opportunities for agents to work directly with the customer to design custom products at many locations.  Jon Lengefeld, who opened and operated Central Texas Memorial in 1999 to 2001, rejoined the Riley-Gardner Memorial family business in 2013 as Sales Manager.
