For more than a century, Monte Vista Memorial Park has provided care and service to families in and around Johnson City, Tennessee. The cemetery is among the larger perpetual care cemeteries in the area, which also includes the cities of Elizabethton, Kingsport and Bristol. Together, Monte Vista Memorial Park and Monte Vista Funeral Home add vital convenience and simplicity when planning funeral and burial arrangements, minimizing the stress of planning when you need it most.

Beautifully renovated funeral home

Completely renovated in 2018, Monte Vista Funeral Home is a bright and airy 3,100-square-foot building, providing a sense of calm and comfort for families during this difficult time. From the moment you step inside, you are met with a spacious foyer that combines southern, traditional elegance with modern amenities.

Our chapel and reflection area

Chapel at Monte Vista Funeral Home & Monte Vista Memorial ParkOur extensive renovation included the addition of a stunning nondenominational chapel, complete with a cathedral ceiling and chair seating for up to 120 guests. Stained glass sits at the front of the chapel, providing an abundance of natural light. The chapel includes a state-of-the-art sound system, piano and organ, as well as two 65-inch television screens that can be used to showcase slideshows and digital presentations of your loved one. Visitations typically take place in the chapel.

Directly outside of the chapel is an outdoor reflection area featuring a flowing fountain and bench seating. Families and guests often use this serene space for private reflection and meditation.

"Our family member had not settled her burial details, so I was pleased with the explanation of the service options. Thought out party was small, I felt everything was dealt with beautifully. I especially appreciate the coordination with her church, her funeral home, and your burial services. Very professional interaction with all parties. Thank you"
