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.

"My Mom had a fatal accident from a fall in the wee hours of the morning. I happened to be out of state but due back the next day. I phoned Chapel of the Hills, at 6:30 am and was greeted by a cheerful and down to business lady named Wendy Cunningham. She arranged for my Mom to be picked up and it was done by two compassionate and sweet girls who

took extra care to gently move my mother to their facility. When I met with Wendy at her office, I was amazed at her perfect attention to detail. She is friendly, compassionate and has a wonderful personality which made me feel very comfortable. She handled everything in her power for me, the death certificate done by my mother's doctor, which she noticed an error and sent it back and it was promptly corrected. Wendy handled the permit for disposition for the cemetery, the cremation, and even contacted Social Security for me. My whole experience was as good as it could be. The cost for all of this great service and lovely engraved wooden box was quite a lot less than I had expected. I would recommend Chapel of the Hills to all that need these services. Very Happy."

"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"
