Another interment option besides traditional ground burial is mausoleum entombment. A mausoleum is simply a large building designed to provide above-ground interment (or entombment) for a number of unrelated people. Sharing the cost of the mausoleum with other individuals has made it an affordable and attractive option for many.
Sunset Funeral Home & Memorial Park features four mausoleums and a total of 432 crypt spaces. The first mausoleum was completed in the mid-1980s and contains the Resurrection Chapel and Shepherd Chapel with a beautiful view of the lake from its entrance. This original mausoleum features quaint lanterns lining the walkway to the entrance, and in addition to the lake view, it also overlooks both the Tranquility and Serenity outdoor mausoleums, each of which have two sections: Tranquility Garden and Tranquility Courtyard, and Serenity Garden and Serenity Courtyard. Sunset’s newest mausoleum, the Chapel of Peace, was completed in 2005 and offers a picturesque view of the fountain and lake.
