History

Over 50 years of service

Memory Gardens Cemetery was founded in 1949 by William Pailey when he purchased Euclid Lawn Cemetery, a rural cemetery in desperate need of attention, care and repair. Many of the original lot owners at Memory Gardens have interesting stories and recollections of the single gravel road and overgrown trees that once existed.

Over the years, William developed many gardens, allowing families to memorialize their loved ones in a peaceful environment. It was William's great vision that truly transformed our property into the premier, non-sectarian cemetery we are today. We continue to develop and design cemetery options to meet the needs and wishes of the families we serve.
