About

A pillar in the Visalia community, Miller Memorial Chapel has provided funeral and cremation services for more than 100 years. The team at Miller Memorial Chapel understands that losing a loved one is a difficult experience, and we are committed to helping you with compassionate, professional and personal care.

Let's start with a story

Whether you are planning for yourself or a loved one, we help you create a meaningful celebration that reflects the personality and passions of a unique life. We find inspiration almost anywhere—in a favorite song, hobby, even an iconic style—and turn that into a funeral or memorial filled with thoughtful and meaningful details. From a motorcycle processional to an art show to dancing horses, you’ll find there’s almost no limit to the special tribute we can create.

Our Visalia funeral home

Miller Memorial Chapel is a peaceful place to remember a life with friends and family. The chapel has a midcentury-modern feel and exposed wood beams. It is the largest in the county and seats up to 350 people.

The funeral home is close to Visalia Public Cemetery (located at 1300 W. Goshen Ave.) and has an on-site crematory.

Here for you

Our professional funeral directors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to guide you through funeral and cremation arrangements. Please call us whenever you need us.

History

Established in 1903 by Julius Caesar "A.E." Brooks as Brooks Funeral Parlor, Miller Memorial Chapel has served Visalia, California, and the surrounding area for more than 100 years.

In 1963, Sam Miller and his wife, Myrtle, purchased the funeral home from Roy Brooks, A.E.'s son, and operated the family funeral business as Miller Memorial Chapel until 1996, when Sam’s sons, Paul and David, sold the funeral home. David remained an integral part of Miller Memorial Chapel until he retired in December 2015.

One of the guiding tenets of Miller Memorial Chapel is a commitment to a high standard of service. We are proud to uphold a century-old heritage and are committed to helping families for years to come.
