The Palm Beach Difference
Since 1958, we have been honored to deliver healing experiences to the Palm Beach community. We exist to serve the unique needs of every family. Learn our story. Lean on us. And let our expertise lead you through the best experience possible.
We’re here to give you care and comfort as we help guide you through the planning journey.
We've learned a lot about caring for families over the years. We realize that we aren't just caring for a loved one, but the entire family. People come to us during their most difficult times, and we respond with kindness, understanding and expertise. Our goal is to make everyone feel at home as we work with them to create a memorable service in honor of a beautiful life.
Palm Beach Memorial Park’s non-sectarian, perpetual care garden cemetery opened for business in the summer of 1958, and has been the final resting place ever since the first settlers came to the county. Our Beth Olam section has the distinction of being the first Jewish cemetery in the area.
Known for its dignity, peace and serenity, Palm Beach Memorial offers the one-stop convenience of an expansive funeral home and on-site crematory as well as a cemetery with a wide range of memorialization options.

Chapel Location Manager
Erica Smith was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and has lived in Palm Beach county since 2008. As chapel location manager, she serves families as they experience one of their most difficult times.
Her interest in the funeral industry was sparked at an early age as she spent time at the Medical Examiner's Office where her father worked as an autopsy technician. In 2014, her younger brother passed away. Planning his celebration of life service was the catalyst for her return to the classroom to pursue her childhood passion of becoming a funeral director.
Erica graduated with an Associate of Funeral Science in 2016 from the Philbrick School of Funeral Science at Miami Dade College in Miami, Florida. While she was earning her degree, she started serving families in Palm Beach County as a funeral attendant and later as a funeral director. Prior to becoming a licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer, Erica was a police officer in both Philadelphia and Cobb County, Georgia. She would later relocate to Florida where she became a safety and loss prevention director for a leading hospitality company.
In her free time, Erica enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, podcasting, and eating seafood.
We illuminate paths to peace with personalized ceremonies and memorial tributes that honor your loved one.
