When a loved one passes away, a person’s thoughts naturally turn toward family history, traditions, and legacies. At Skylawn Memorial Park in San Mateo, we understand the importance of respecting one’s roots and family traditions. Our funeral home and memorial park have been privileged to serve the community for decades. Saying a final goodbye is never easy, but it can be comforting to know that you’ve transferred the care of your loved one into the capable hands of our staff.
Our Memorial Park
Skylawn Memorial Park opened in 1959, at which time our grounds covered more than 134 acres. The accomplished landscape architects, French and Jones of San Francisco, contributed their graceful touch to our design. Since our opening, our memorial park has expanded to more than 500 acres of wide open spaces and serene gardens. We’re bordered by a wildlife preserve, which means the view from your loved one’s resting place will remain untouched.
Our Funeral Home
We are a non-sectarian funeral home, and are privileged to provide respectful services to families of all faiths, cultures, and walks of life. Families are welcome to pause for quiet reflection in our two chapels. Our visitation rooms are comfortable and spacious, and we offer the use of our reception room. It overlooks a serene rock garden and waterfall. Throughout our many years of service, Skylawn Memorial Park has made some improvements to better meet the needs of modern families. Our funeral home features full audiovisual capabilities, which allow families to design meaningful, digital tributes to their loved ones.
Our staff has changed over the years, but our commitment to quality, compassionate care hasn’t wavered. We’re proud of the trusting relationships we’ve built with the community we serve. The funeral home staff is committed to respecting the wishes of every family, and to helping families design funeral services that serve as a loving tribute to the decedent.
