Originally known as Northwest Memorial Gardens, Skyline Memorial Gardens was established in 1952 by Fred Collins after he purchased the site from Corrine Barber. Mr. Collins retained the services of Max Fuller, a Kansas City landscape designer who designed many of the mid-century memorial parks in the United States.
As the gardens were designed, Mr. Collins commissioned Carrara marble statues to be carved by Guido Orlandi, an artist from Milan, Italy. Taking pride in these pristine gardens and statues, Mr. Collins personally helped install the Italian marble sculptures that are featured throughout the cemetery.
By 1962, the dream of Mr. Collins to build a funeral home, crematory, flower shop and cemetery became a reality. He owned and operated Skyline Memorial Gardens Funeral Home and Skyline Memorial Gardens until his death in 1975.
