History

Stoddard Funeral & Cremation, located in Greeley, Colorado, was founded in 1978 by Paul and Virginia Stoddard. Originally on the western side of Greeley, the funeral home has maintained its original location, now situated in the central part of Greeley. Paul and Virginia began with a commitment to a high standard of service. Throughout our history, we continue to lead and innovate while maintaining those high standards of service.

Sunset Memorial Gardens

Cemetery grounds at Sunset Memorial GardensSunset Memorial Gardens on West 28th Street has served Greeley area families since its founding in 1952. Since then, our commitment to the community has always been our top priority. Our beautifully landscaped cemetery occupies approximately 26 acres, allows for flush-to-the-ground monuments and includes a variety of gardens, plus a veterans garden, Catholic garden and cremation garden. Private estates are also available.

Cemetery history

Founded by W.D. and Deloss Dhority on farmland west of Greeley, Sunset Memorial Gardens has grown along with the surrounding community. Originating with the Garden of the Christus and the Garden of Devotion, the cemetery now includes a veterans garden, Catholic garden and cremation garden. 

In 1987, Sunset Memorial Gardens became a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, and in 1995, became a sister location of Stoddard Funeral & Cremation. Together, Stoddard Funeral & Cremation & Sunset Memorial Gardens allow you to take care of all your funeral and burial arrangements.
