Our growing cemetery
To better serve the Santa Clara River Valley community, we added a new garden—Our Lady of Guadalupe Garden—which features an 8-foot mosaic of Our Lady of Guadalupe. In this memorial section, families may choose a traditional ground burial or cremation inurnment in the columbarium, which stands next to the mosaic of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Your family may also honor loved ones with several different cremation tributes, and future cemetery plans include a newly designed cremation garden.
Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery continuously grows to meet the needs of the Santa Paula and Ventura County communities. As a non-denominational cemetery, our staff welcomes all cultural backgrounds and traditions. We understand the struggles of losing a loved one and will provide you with care, compassion and personal service. Our burial, cremation and funeral services in Santa Paula are designed to help our families through one of the most personal and challenging stages of life.
How we serve Santa Paula
As part of our community service, Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery is proud to sponsor an annual Memorial Day ceremony held by the Mercer-Prieto Post 2043 Veterans of Foreign Wars. We also host an annual Día de los Muertos celebration. During this event, family and friends spend time together, sharing memories, laughter and tears as they remember and honor the lives of the departed.
The caring staff at Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery is here to assist you. Contact us if you have an immediate need or to learn more about our burial and cremation services and plan-ahead options.
Our Santa Paula cemetery history spans more than 100 years. In the late 1800s, Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery in Santa Paula, California, was divided into 3 family sections: the Sewell, Fagan and Mt. Olive sections.
In 1903, our cemetery was incorporated and became known as the Santa Paula Cemetery Association. Although the cemetery was an endowment care cemetery at this time, its 3 original sections were considered nonendowment care gardens. Ed Davis became the controlling owner in 1950 and was responsible for establishing the endowment care of the original sections, thus giving our cemetery its uniform appearance today.
St. Francis Dam Flood
In 1928, the city of Santa Paula was devastated by flooding caused by the collapse of the St. Francis Dam. Considered one of the worst disasters of California, the flood waters took the lives of hundreds of people who lived in the Santa Clara River Valley area. Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery buried 34 victims of the flood. Today, a memorial stands to honor and remember the victims who lost their lives on that tragic day.
We cherish the community we serve and invite you to join us for our upcoming events.
