Creating a healing experience
In the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be ‘easier’ to just take care of things as simply – and as quickly –as possible. But easier – especially in this circumstance – simply isn’t better. You must set the stage for the future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.
Funeral & Memorial
Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation; whether you select a formal funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, the need for acknowledgment of the loss with family and friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one.
We offer families a beautiful setting in which to come together to honor your loved one. But, you may certainly choose to celebrate their life in a more unique setting. No matter where you decide to gather together, such a service will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.
A well planned ceremony truly reflects a person’s personality. It provides a way for families and friends to share grief, acknowledge contributions and celebrate the unique characteristics of the deceased. A funeral or memorial service can be an important step on the road to healing.

Cremation only refers to the manner in which you or your loved one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. We want you to know that this decision doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service, because your need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to be cremated. Again, the options are limited only by your imagination.
As cremation continues to grow in popularity, so does the desire to add meaning by including a gathering or memorial service. Viewing or visitation is one of the many options available to those who select cremation services. Establishing a permanent memorial to serve as a focal point of remembrance offers value to the living. Cremated remains can be taken home, placed in a cemetery for burial or scattering, or scattered on private or public property. We hope that you will contact us to discuss the wide variety of celebratory options open to you.

If burial has been selected, usually any ceremonies we design revolve around the casket being present. You can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or memorial chapel. Or you could decide to have a more relaxed service, even in your family home.
Let’s just say this: there is no ‘hard and fast’ formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. We’re here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together before your loved one's interment in the cemetery of your choice.
Green Valley Cemetery offers traditional burial plots, veteran dedicated plots, personal and community mausoleums. Niches, ground burials, memorial and scattering gardens are available as permanent resting places for cremated remains. The ponds, streams, and waterfalls of Sierra Springs Memorial Garden provide a natural environment to remember and honor life.

Grief experts believe that a viewing or visitation can help acknowledge the reality of death and provide an important step in the grieving process. These services can be held before a funeral or cremation and can be limited to private family viewing or one that is available to all family and friends.

An informal gathering provides the opportunity for all to share memories and express gratitude for a life that was well lived. Survivors often emerge with a sense of hope and a knowledge that life continues. Receptions can be held before, after, or instead of formal funeral or memorial services.
Funeral, memorial, and cremation services are often followed by a reception of friends and family at the home. This can be a large responsibility and it is often exhausting for the family to host at such a difficult time. The Legacy Center at Green Valley is designed to host receptions and gatherings for family and friends after the services.
With indoor table seating of 140+ and covered-patio table seating of 80+ we can host the largest of gatherings with full catering services available. Live video streaming of events is also available for those who are unable to attend or those who would like to view later.
Green Valley provides complimentary consultations to discuss options and record your funeral or cremation preferences. Most of the documents that are needed when death occurs can be completed far in advance, making it easier for those you love both emotionally and financially.
