Sunset Memorial Gardens is a privately owned cemetery, and we receive no taxpayer funding.
Sunset Memorial is supported by the sale of burial spaces, memorial markers, and burial services.
Projects planned for 2022 include resurfacing the driveway with road - mix, and the planting of more trees along the perimeter of the Gardens of Christus, Devotion, and Memories.
A long-term project, that will require significant resources, is the installation of an underground sprinkler system for the Garden of Devotion/Veteran's Section. The Garden of Memories, and the Christus Garden have a good, underground system already in place. We are fortunate to have a well that provides an abundance of water.
Currently, we are in the process of compiling a comprehensive database with a complete profile of cemetery ownership, burials, and other records gleaned from hundreds of documents compiled since the founding of Sunset Memorial in 1956.
With the aid of a customized software program and the enlistment of two tech wizard family members, we are off to a good start and look to have this completed by spring of 2022...
