History

The current Chapel of the Hills has its roots in Auburn Undertakers, which was established in 1901 in what is now the Native Sons of the Golden West building in historic Old Town Ashburn. In its early years, Auburn Undertakers employed Colin Hislop as an embalmer. Mr. Hislop was elected Coroner of Placer County in 1915 and served 3 terms.

Mr. Hislop later opened and owned the current Chapel of the Hills facility, which was built in 1935. Over the next several years, ownership of Chapel of the Hills transferred from Mr. Hislop to Mr. Doris Hite to Mr. Harry Sands in 1955. Mr. Sands managed the funeral home until 1998. Today, we are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network.

"No one wants to go into a funeral home. I don't have that fear anymore. I was welcomed and not a fake welcome, but a sincere one. Wendy worked with me on arrangements and cost which I felt she helped me with greatly. Wendy made my Mom look so good after such an awful illness. She did her hair, nails, clothing and jewelry etc. It was just phenomenal

. I could go on and on I had no pressure of the whole funeral day. She helped me get the room ready and take every last pic and moment in. It was so beautiful and I was so happy I told her I would recommend Chapel of the Hills to anyone and we all agreed Wendy could do the job but not for hopefully a long time! BTW from the moment the 2 young ones came to get my Mom I felt as ease. They were so nice and respectful for their age."

"Wendy is a perfectionist at her occupation and takes care of all details with passion. The whole staff was very professional and made sure everything went as planned. Wendy was there for our family at our loved ones celebration of life and burial the following day. We have had Chapel of the Hills take care of all of our family that has passed away

for years and have never been disappointed. They've always gone above and beyond. Thank you so much. Ed Belding and family"

"We were delighted with the care and expertise that were received at Chapel of the Hills Auburn. They were caring and compassionate and answered all of our questions. We needed a little extra time in the chapel for my dad's service and they were able to accommodate us. I really liked how they were available but not intrusive and let us take care of

our own arrangements for our service. They would just pop in every once in a while and ask if we had any questions or need any help. We brought in computer equipment For live streaming and music equipment for live music and everything went really well. thank you for your tender care and touch at Chapel of the Hills in Auburn."
