History & Staff
We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
It is an honor and privilege to serve our community for more than 60 years. Our non-sectarian, perpetual care garden cemetery opened for business in the summer of 1958, under the name of Lincoln Memorial Cemetery. Our perpetual care garden cemetery 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.
We offer a range of funeral, cemetery and cremation services, including private, basic outdoor, standard indoor mausoleums and various ground burial options. Crematory services include premium columbarium, library niches and a cremation garden.
We invite you to visit us and see the many options that we provide. Our trained and helpful staff will be happy to assist you with any information that you may need.
