History

In 1926, Asher Peter and a group of civic leaders founded Woodlawn Memorial Park.

The cemetery was designed to be a beautiful place that would express ideals of life, hope, and new beginnings. Robert Neel joined the Woodlawn staff in 1949. He and his son were instrumental in the planning and preparation of the Life of Christ mosaic and many of the other features that now adorn the cemetery.

In 1976, a funeral home was added to the property. This made Woodlawn Memorial Park the 1st cemetery in the state of Florida to have a funeral home on its grounds.

Today, Woodlawn Funeral Home and Woodlawn Memorial Park are members of the Dignity Memorial® network.

Woodlawn Memorial Park cemetery

Grounds at Woodlawn Funeral Home & Memorial ParkWoodlawn Memorial Park is an inclusive cemetery serving different faiths, cultures and beliefs. The property includes a large lake, 2 fountains and beautiful statues. It is a lovely final resting place and home to much wildlife.

Burial options

The cemetery offers a wide selection of burial options, including in-ground burial with flush or upright memorials, a community mausoleum, family estates, private mausoleums and a cremation garden with cremation niches.

Because we believe in making everyone feel welcome, certain areas of the cemetery are dedicated to specific religions, including the Catholic and Jewish faiths. In 1954, Woodlawn began to develop the gardens that would eventually have various religious themes. The 1st garden was the Garden of the Apostle, and then other gardens followed, including the Garden of the Last Supper. A bronze statue of George Washington sits in the Masonic garden.

In 1986, we added the Garden of Memories to provide options for families who choose cremation. A graceful fountain adorns this garden, making it a peaceful place to reflect and remember loved ones.

Life of Christ mosaic

The community mausoleum, Mausoleum of Christian Heritage, holds the Life of Christ mosaic. This cherished artwork is modeled after a similar piece at another cemetery in California and depicts the life of Christ in 23 scenes (with a center panel showing the risen Christ).

Crafted in Italy and assembled in Orlando, the mosaic is made of more than 11 million bits of glass. Unveiled in 1993, it serves as an impressive backdrop for our annual Easter sunrise service. Featuring music from local artists and various clergy, the service is an annual tradition for many families in the area.

Arbor Estates

In 2008, Woodlawn Memorial Park opened Arbor Estates. With a stream, waterfall and fountains, this garden is the 1st of its kind in the Orlando area. It allows both traditional burial spaces as well as cremation interment areas.

Honoring veterans

Woodlawn Memorial Park features several gardens dedicated to veterans. The cemetery also has memorials dedicated to military members and the memory of those who perished in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Woodlawn Funeral Home participates in the Homeless Veterans Burial Program, a cooperative effort with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and local veteran advocates and organizations. Through this program, homeless veterans with no family receive dignified military funerals with honors.

We also honor servicemen and servicewomen throughout the year, including on Memorial Day with American flags and National Wreath Laying Day, when we place wreaths on veterans’ graves.

Community involvement

Woodlawn Funeral Home and Woodlawn Memorial Park are invested in Gotha and surrounding communities. We host several events each year, including an Easter sunrise service, a Mother’s Day celebration and a December holiday remembrance. We are also involved in local rotary and chamber groups.

"Every detail was directly linked to my mom. From the service, to the tribute to the socialization afterwards. I feel it was exactly what Mom would have wanted. I loved the pictures streaming during the entire service and afterward. The tribute was very personal with things that she had enjoyed and created. Brooke, our funeral director, listened closely to what we told her about Mom and through her expertise incorporated all the details that we desired in the service."
