Mourners during the pandemicUntil recently, gathering with friends and family to hold a memorial service was not allowed due to COVID restrictions. Now, once again, we are able to offer you our upscale, beautiful indoor facility where you can gather with up to 80 people for celebrations of life!
Our caring staff can help you respectfully plan a funeral service that will help you honor your loved one and make it as unique as they were. Our facility offers many amenities, including private rooms for family and beautifully and comfortably furnished conversation areas.
The rental of our facility includes tables and chairs, specialty tables, AV equipment, and the use of our high-speed internet. That way, if family or friends can’t make it to the service in person, they can still participate by watching a live stream!
Our experienced staff has worked with many families in Nevada County, helping them plan memorial services of all different types paying tribute to those who have passed. We offer planning consultations where we can discuss options like slide shows, tribute items, and other personal touches that you may want to incorporate. We can help you sort out the details and plan according to your family’s wishes so that you can attend and not be distracted by the details of the day.
Our facility offers enough space inside to safely and comfortably hold up to 80 people physically distanced. Call to speak with our staff about planning a Celebration of Life that is a fitting tribute to your loved one. You can call or text (530) 271-1000 anytime.
