History & Staff

Our Story

Learn the legacy

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.

500+ acres of beauty

Designed by noted San Francisco landscape architects French and Jones, Skylawn Memorial Park was built on over 134 acres and has expanded to more than 500 acres since its opening in 1959. Because it is surrounded by a wildlife preserve, Skylawn’s vast beauty will remain unspoiled for generations.

Cultural gardens

Inside the park are beautifully landscaped gardens, with several set aside for specific cultural and community groups, including two remarkable Chinese gardens developed to the exact specifications of international Feng Shui masters.

Dignity, peace and serenity

Known for its dignity, peace and serenity, Skylawn is a full-service facility offering the one-stop convenience of an expansive funeral home, cemetery and on-site crematory. Having provided exceptional service for nearly 60 years, we’re proud of the reputation we’ve built.
