A welcoming funeral home for the diverse Seattle community
Greenwood Funeral Home serves families from all cultures, religions and backgrounds. Our funeral directors and funeral celebrant are well-versed in a wide range of funeral and cremation customs and traditions. We have held services at our funeral home for Filipino, Ukrainian, Russian, Chinese and Hmong families, among others. We have arranged services for those who are Protestant, Catholic, Buddhist, nondenominational, nonreligious and more. Our team members speak English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese and Filipino.
A modern, updated space loaded with amenities
The interior decor of Greenwood Funeral Home was professionally updated in 2017, and we continually work to improve our facilities and services. New furniture, flooring, calming wall colors and modern light fixtures give our spaces a contemporary look and feel. A spacious funeral chapel seats 150 guests; spillover space takes capacity to nearly 200. It has a state-of-the-art video and sound system for music and multimedia tributes.
Families also have access to two intimate gathering rooms for visitations or small services. Our reception room seats up to 50 for a catered event—anything from a continental breakfast to an ice cream social to a sit-down dinner—before or after a ceremony. With a range of experts at our fingertips, we’re happy to help you hire caterers, musicians, florists and more.
Whether you prefer an intimate gathering or a grand event, our funeral home accommodates services of all sizes and types. Webcasting allows faraway family and friends to watch a service live from anywhere on their computer, smartphone or tablet.
Let’s celebrate life
There are countless ways to celebrate a person’s life, and the experts at Greenwood create meaningful and memorable tributes that reflect a loved one’s passions and personality. Though traditional religious funeral services remain a popular option, we recognize that you may prefer a contemporary and upbeat Celebration of Life ceremony instead. Our attentive funeral directors and funeral celebrant specialize in creating custom memorials that truly speak to the lives of individuals. You can inspire us with a memory of your loved one, a hobby that grew into a passion, a favorite music genre or a portfolio of hand-created art, and we will work to gracefully incorporate as many personal elements as you would like into the service.
Was your loved one a car enthusiast? We’ll display antique vehicles in the parking lot and then use them for the processional to the gravesite. Or was she a lifelong quilter? We’ll showcase the handmade blankets in the chapel. From tomato plants to taxidermy, motorcycles to musical instruments, we will go to the ends of the earth to create something truly special.
Specializing in Asian funeral services
Greenwood Funeral Home welcomes and respects families from all cultures, and we perform a large number of Asian services each year. Our chapel is equipped with a ventilation system designed to handle burning incense. We accommodate the burning of joss paper just outside the chapel door, and the grounds of Greenwood Memorial Park have multiple burning barrels.
Buddhism is Asia’s most widespread religion, and many members of the community we serve are Buddhist. We take pride in understanding various Buddhist customs and can provide everything a family needs for a traditional Buddhist service.
You are always welcome to visit us at 350 Monroe Ave. NE to meet our friendly associates and tour the lovely funeral home and cemetery grounds. Give us a call for any reason. Whether you have an immediate need, a question or want to learn more about funeral, cremation and memorial services, we are here to serve you.
Greenwood Memorial Park cemetery
Situated on 40 acres replete with beautiful blossoming trees, a variety of flowers and shrubs and well-kept landscaping, Greenwood Memorial Park provides a quiet place to honor the memory of loved ones. We are among the few cemeteries in the Renton area to offer exclusive private family mausoleums, a patio mausoleum, indoor glass-front niches, lawn crypts and a wide variety of cremation memorialization options such as estates, memorial benches, niches and columbaria. At Greenwood Memorial Park, we strive to meet every Seattle family’s burial needs and understand that choosing cemetery property is an important and often emotional decision.
Gardens that honor Asian cultures
The most impressive gardens at Greenwood Memorial Park are Garden of Eternal Peace and Lotus Garden. To honor the rich and vibrant Asian population in the Seattle area, these gardens have Asian-inspired features and were designed with the influence of a feng shui master. Garden of Eternal Peace was built in 2006 and has a magnificent pagoda surrounded by upright monuments with curved Asian-inspired roofs, private estates made of brick and a relaxing water fountain. A newer development, Lotus Garden, has a dragon water feature and offers private estates made of slate.
Anyone is welcome to choose Lotus Garden or Garden of Eternal Peace as their final resting spot. Greenwood Memorial Park also includes gardens dedicated to the Vietnamese and Filipino cultures.
Prepared for future generations
Greenwood Memorial Park stands ready to serve many more generations of Renton, Seattle and Tacoma families. Our property still has undeveloped land and plenty of space for future generations.
We care about Seattle
Seattle is a vibrant and diverse community—and we are lucky to be a part of it. Greenwood Memorial Park and Greenwood Funeral Home participate in numerous events in the community each year and hold events large and small on the property annually. Among them are an April Ching Ming festival for Chinese families to remember their ancestors and loved ones. We serve lunch, set off firecrackers and invite traditional dragon dancers. We also host an event on Memorial Day weekend to honor veterans and military families. During that event, we serve hot dogs and help guests find their loved ones’ final resting spots. Volunteers place American flags on markers and there is usually a flyover with a B-52 bomber.
Greenwood Memorial Park has served the Renton community since 1910. The cemetery is the final resting spot of many notable politicians, entrepreneurs, soldiers and a legendary rock star. The oldest marker in the cemetery dates back to 1887. In 1984, Greenwood Funeral Home opened on the cemetery property to provide convenience Seattle-area families.
