Our Chapel of Memories and adjoining Mausoleum were first conceived, designed and built by our founder Carl K. Linge in 1941.

The first addition, which included the Corridor of Faith, the Corridor of Light and the Garden of Prayer, was completed in 1947.

In 1955 Carl Linge, working with his son David, designed and built the Corridor of Peace with the Statue of the Immortality at its center.

The Corridor of Hope was built in 1997 and provides opportunities for additional expansion.

Cremation Inurnment

inurnment memorializes cremated remains within a place of permanent rest. Our mausoleum offers niches made of bronze, marble or glass. Lighted glass niches offer a way for families to display not only the urn, but photos and other mementos.
