Amid exquisite Tiffany glass, vintage hand-hewn marble sculptures from Italy and some of the country’s most intricate architecture, this Portland landmark honors those within with its nostalgic beauty, timeless stories, and unparalleled character. The historic mausoleum encompasses two and a half city blocks and is one of the largest indoor cemeteries in the Pacific Northwest, with spaces and options for every budget. Art and history are the very foundation of this memorial event center, one of the most exceptional places in the country to create an unforgettable experience.
This boutique cemetery covers over six acres with paths along prize-winning rose gardens, a wisteria-covered arbor, and naturally treed areas. The exclusive memorial garden specializes in cremation memorials. With a unique and modern event center with open, vaulted ceilings and an outside deck overlooking the creek, the chapel is the perfect place to host the celebration of your loved one’s life. Truly one of the Portland area’s gems!
A forty-acre “wildlife preserve masquerading as a cemetery.” The memorial gardens are comprised of traditional cemetery property, dedicated Green Burial areas, lakefront cremation estates, wooded areas, nature trails, wetlands and, of course, our six-acre lake. Our funeral home and offices are conveniently located within these beautiful grounds. When you visit, make sure to bring your camera and binoculars – we have spotted 107 species of birds so far and are the only place in the area home to two different native species of turtles.
RESTING PLACES & LIFE CELEBRATIONS
The purpose of a cremation niche is to provide family and friends with a place to visit and pay their respects. Niches are available in single, double and family size (four) spaces. They can be made with a glass front allowing the viewing of the urn as well as personal memorial items displayed within. Niches can be within the walls of a mausoleum or in outdoor columbariums.
While burying the cremated remains in a plot at a local cemetery, memorial prayers and religious rites can be performed at the graveside. Once the service is over, you can also choose to mark the location with a stone or monument. By choosing a burial plot for the cremated remains, multiple urns may be buried within the same plot, allowing families to be together.
Many cemeteries or memorial parks have special areas dedicated for the interment of cremated remains. Depending upon your budget and preference, you can inter the cremated remains in the landscape – such as in a large rock, bench, fountain, or other landscape elements. If you wish, you can mark the urn burial spot with a headstone or grave marker.
All three of our locations offer an array of scattering options. For example, an ossuary provides a communal permanent resting place for cremated remains – often in an underground vault or chamber – with memorialization on a plaque above or nearby.
Water features at some of our locations are specifically designed for water scatterings. Our staff can help create and officiate the ideal ceremony for your loved one.
We can help you design the scattering celebration that’s right for you – while following the proper rules and regulations. Whether it’s on land, water or in the air, we can ensure the process will be memorable and respectful.
Life is full of opportunities to show someone we love them. One such opportunity is a memorial service. No matter how long it has been, it is never too late to gather friends and family and remember that special person. We can create a personal and one-of-a-kind celebration to honor a life well lived. Whether they were passionate about golfing, acting, baking, traveling…you name it, we will help you recreate the special story of your loved one and we will take care of all the details.
