About

Together, Memory Gardens Funeral Home and Memory Gardens serves Corpus Christi residents from many backgrounds with fine funeral, cremation and cemetery services. As sister locations, we provide everything you and your family may need to celebrate a life and memorialize a loved one.

A welcoming funeral home

Chapel at Memory Gardens Funeral HomeThe team at Memory Gardens Funeral Home is committed to accommodating families of all cultures and religions. Our non-denominational chapel has been the site of services and ceremonies for people of Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish and Catholic backgrounds, just to name a few—and because no 2 lives are the same, our team focuses on designing final services that reflect the uniqueness of special lives.

The main chapel at Memory Gardens Funeral Home seats 250 people; a smaller gathering room accommodates approximately 75. Visitation rooms can be converted to reception areas for as many as 100 guests. Whether you want a breakfast buffet, a champagne toast or a full dinner, we are happy to help organize catering before or after a funeral service.

Several of our staff members are bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish to fully serve our community in the Coastal Bend of Texas.

You can count on us

The dedicated, experienced staff at Memory Gardens Funeral Home is committed to providing the professional, compassionate service you and your family deserve.

Many of our funeral directors have been part of the team for years and are involved members of the Corpus Christi community. They have built long-lasting relationships with local families and helped us earn trust in the region. More importantly, they are here for you when you need them. Please call anytime.

History

Signage at Memory Gardens Funeral HomeMemory Gardens cemetery was established in 1952. Memory Gardens Funeral Home was built on the picturesque cemetery property in 1994. Through many years of assisting Corpus Christi families, the cemetery and funeral home have led and innovated while maintaining high standards of service. The teams at Memory Gardens Funeral Home and Memory Gardens work hard to uphold that commitment and the traditions of our founders for compassionate care.

Memory Gardens cemetery

Memory Gardens is 114 acres of expertly manicured grounds offering a diverse range of burial options, from traditional in-ground interment to above-ground mausoleum entombment. We also offer columbaria and niches for cremated remains, as well as memorial benches, private family estates and other permanent memorialization choices.

Each section of the Corpus Christi cemetery includes an identifying feature or landmark, such as a sculpture or monument. Additionally, our memorial park includes a beautiful selection of trees and seasonal flowers, and because we are in a more rural area of Corpus Christi, on Old Brownsville Road, the quiet here is palpable.

Honoring military veterans

Veterans section at Memory GardensVeterans funerals at Memory Gardens Funeral Home and Memory Gardens include military honors with elements such as a 3-volley salute and a flag presentation. The cemetery includes areas reserved for those who served in the U.S. armed forces.

The funeral home and cemetery also participate in the Homeless Veterans Burial Program (HVBP). Founded upon the belief that every veteran deserves a dignified and honorable burial, HVBP is a cooperative effort with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, local medical examiners, coroners, veterans’ advocates and veterans’ organizations to provide homeless and indigent veterans who have no family to claim with proper military burials.

"The care center, Victor, Adolfo, Albino and Carla did an excellent job of dressing and cosmeticizing my mother. She looked beautiful! Lisa was very compassionate and attentive to all of our needs throughout the whole process. She gave my sister and me each a set of Jacks as a reminder of the game we used to play with our mother. Duvie, Mark and Santiago were so professional and attentive to our family and our guests during the Visitation, Rosary and Funeral Service."
