Turning to the rich history of the rural cemeteries of the 19th century, the founders of Kidwell-Garber Funeral Homes preserved the historic elements of a time when cemeteries became, not only places of mourning, but also places for those wanting to experience the peacefulness and serenity of a beautiful park.
Kidwell-Garber Funeral Homes provides families with exceptional settings for the permanent memorials of their loved ones. With acres of rolling green lawns and majestic trees, Garber Memorial Estates is a perfect place for families to return, year after year, in remembrance and honor.
Sometimes one family member wants to be buried and another wishes to be cremated, yet they want to be together. Because we know this to be a common wish, Kidwell-Garber Funeral Homes makes it simple for families. We can easily arrange for a common burial of both your loved ones in the same plot.
We would be honored to guide you through the cemetery grounds, explore your perspectives, and make suggestions. Ultimately, the decision is in your hands; but our expertise can certainly guide you.
Traditionally, in-ground burial has been the choice of many families. We provide families with many in-ground burial options, including large family estate lots, multiple space lots and single grave spaces. Depending on the needs of the family, there are many areas throughout the cemetery to choose.
Kidwell-Garber Funeral Homes maintains a variety of facilities for the interment of cremated remains, giving you a full selection of urns, niches, columbaria and urn benches. For those families who desire it, we’re also able to combine in-ground burial for both casketed and cremated remains.
Cremation niches are available in our columbaria at Garber Memorial Estates.
Mausoleums allow for above ground entombment in either community buildings or specially designed family structures. At one time the advantages of mausoleum entombment were available only to royalty, the famed or the very wealthy. Well-known mausoleums include the Taj Mahal, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Egyptian Pyramids. Mausoleum property is now affordable to most everyone.
Private Family Mausoleums
Only just recently have family mausoleums become an affordable and viable option for more and more families. Annual sales of family mausoleums have increased 2200% in the past 20 years and are expected to continually increase in the future.
Selecting a family mausoleum is a sound and permanent investment requiring thoughtful, thorough consideration of many factors. We suggest an orderly step-by-step approach to eliminate uncertainties, minimize expenses and assure selection of the family mausoleum that meets all of your requirements.
