Mission Statement

We endeavor to create a Cemetery operation which satisfies the special needs of our particular geographical and population make-up.

We strive to afford fair and courteous treatment of all our residents and taxpayers, regardless of race, color or creed.

We conform to the letter and intent of the provisions of the various state legal codes governing the operation of public cemeteries, i.e., Health & Safety Code.

We operate our fiscal affairs in a prudent manner, constantly keeping in mind our obligation to the taxpayers who bear our financial burden.

We consider and adopt a comprehensive master plan for future operations to provide for orderly and economical growth and expansion to satisfy future needs.

We count among our most cherished assets something money cannot buy….The confidence and good will of those we serve.
