Our Facilities & Grounds


This facility, originally the Overaa family farm, began as a cemetery founded in 1958, and now has 16 of 80 acres developed. The balance of the property remains a natural forest, just the way it was a century ago. Our services have expanded during the past four decades to include a full range of funeral, cremation and burial services.

In keeping with its policy of providing families with full range services at the end of life, Fir Lane Funeral Home and Memorial Park also has the necessary facilities for on-site cremations. Plus, several memorial walls have been constructed in the memorial park to permanently hold urns following cremation.

All parts of Fir Lane Memorial Park are within easy, safe walking distance of the core campus which includes our chapel, the Parkside Room and offices.

Fir Lane's chapel was constructed in 1964 and can accommodate gatherings of more than 100 persons. It features a sound system with multiple CD and large-screen video capabilities.

Adjacent to the chapel is our funeral home and office facility. Built in 1976 to provide space for assisting families with funeral arrangements, it also has visitation rooms and our offices.

Our new reception building, the Parkside Room, offers facilities for gatherings that can include refreshments, such as coffee and cookies, as well as catered light lunches. Families will be comforted by the warm atmosphere for their remembrance gatherings.

You are invited to explore Fir Lane on this website and by coming for a visit in person. We'd be delighted to give you a tour and to answer your questions. Just ask.

Grounds

Fir Lane' Memorial Park is open each day from 8 a.m. until dusk.

To ensure that our park is a pleasant place to visit, we limit temporary items placed on graves to 5 pounds per container. Glass or wire containers are prohibited for safety reasons and we ask families to limit the number of items placed on a grave to three.

Artificial flowers are permitted on graves in the winter months from October 1st through April 1st. These flowers will be removed during the summer. Fresh flowers are permitted at any time during the years and Christmas flowers are permitted between Thanksgiving and February 1st.

We ask all families with loved ones at Fir Lane Memorial Park to help keep our park clean and we always appreciate their cooperation.






 

Mausoleums

Heritage Mausoleum is comprised of full crypts for entombment and niches for cremated remains. It also offers outdoor space for small memorial services.

The pillar building features hand-carved brick murals on each side and also flags representing Washington and the United States.

This brick and timber structure was built in 1992 to meet the growing demands of above-ground entombment. It also features a granite-faced wall for urns holding cremated remains.

Legacy Mausoleum which was finished in 2013, and like the Heritage mausoleum it is constructed of brick and timber. It is comprised of 80 granite faced crypts for entombments and 192 single niches for inurnments. It also offers outdoor space for small memorial services.









 

Cremation

In keeping with its policy of providing families with full range services at the end of life, Fir Lane Funeral Home and Memorial Park also has the necessary facilities for on-site cremations.

Several memorial walls have been constructed in the memorial park to permanently hold urns following cremation.




 

Forest

Fir Lane originally was the Overaa family farm, before the funeral home, cemetery and related facilities were developed on 16 of the farm's 80 acres. The balance of the property remains a natural forest, just the way it was a century ago.

We have used that land, which will someday become part of our cemetery, to grow timber and support wildlife.

In recent years and with the help of the Washington State Department of Natural Resources we have planted 6,250 trees in our undeveloped cemetery property.

We are proud of our heritage and hope to preserve something for furture generations.
