Importance of Memorialization

Memorialization provides a permanent, secure place for cremated remains to be placed, and for family members and descendants to honor the lives of the deceased.

Cremation allows families many choices for memorializing a loved one. Some families choose to keep the cremated remains with them at home, or to scatter the remains over land or water.

River View Cemetery provides many options for memorializing and placement of cremated remains:


Memorialization Options For Cremation:

Sunrise Urn Garden
This tranquil garden affords a beautiful view of Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens and offers benches for thought and contemplation.

This garden includes ground burial for one urn. A bronze vase and an octagon shaped granite memorial complete the package at an affordable cost.



Cremation Benches
Cremation Benches, cored to accommodate one or two urns are available in various places throughout the cemetery.



Ground Burial
Cremated remains may be buried in all ground burial gardens including those designed especially for cremation placement.

Most locations will allow two burial urns with a granite memorial, which can include a simple inscription or can be personalized with photos, artwork or other special inscriptions to uniquely remember your loved one.



The Garden of Reflection
The Garden of Reflection has beautiful, free-standing granite niche walls, garden cremation scattering areas, granite memorial tiles, and granite memorial benches.





Sunrise Niches
