Relieve Your Loved Ones Of Unnecessary Burdens.
And Tell Your Story The Way It Was Meant To Be Told.

“Knowing that your loved ones will never be forced to worry about payment while dealing with their loss, is priceless.”
It Might Be Too Late To Think About The End, At The End.

  • Take the Burden Off Loved Ones
    Eliminate the burden and hardship one must go through while making cemetery arrangements at the time they are urgently needed. Having every decision made and prearranged makes the celebration of one’s life and legacy easier for your family.
  • Freeze Costs
    In times of financial uncertainty, it makes perfect sense to take advantage of these promotions at today’s prices. By making a contract, you freeze the price and protect your family in the future if prices are affected by inflation and higher costs of living!
  • Decisions Are Made Together
    In a calm and rational manner, you can make decisions about your estate and funeral arrangements – together. Advanced arrangements provide families the freedom and opportunity to decide and make arrangements while living.

  • The South Bay is fortunate to have business leaders like La Vista...
    "Who thinks of a cemetery as a key center of a community’s cultural life? Probably no one-unless they know about La Vista. Their efforts to preserve the region’s history; to reach out to military veterans, young and old, and honor their service; and to carry on a proud Mexican tradition with an annual Dia de los Muertos celebration for the entire community. … all set La Vista apart. The South Bay is fortunate to have business leaders like La Vista who appreciate the importance of community service."

    "For over a century La Vista Memorial Park was always considered just a cemetery, but now it has become an integral part of the fabric of our community. It has become the place where we all can come to celebrate, individually and as a community, loved ones both present and departed. The Memorial Day and Dia de los Muertos celebrations are indeed highlights that are among those things that have transformed a community necessity into a wonderful community asset!"

  • I’m deeply grateful for every little detail La Vista took to make our experience in my dad’s final send off perfect...
    "We never want to talk about death but it is most certainly something we will face sooner or later. Luckily my parents are of a different mind-set and had taken care of all the final arrangements down the minimal of details, so there was no stress on the days following my dad’s passing. I had just returned home to Texas a few days prior to his passing. La Vista staff contacted me and asked if I would like to use their Hacienda Hall for a family private viewing of my father. At first I was unsure. They suggested I sleep on it. The next day, I said yes. It is a time that I will cherish forever. My husband and I got to visit with my dad one final time before his mass the following day. The Hacienda Hall was absolutely beautiful, cozy, even heavenly, not sad or cold and impersonal like your average funeral viewing rooms. They facilitated a very special final good-by with my dad whom I love dearly. I’m deeply grateful for every little detail La Vista took to make our experience in my dad’s final send off perfect. Thank you for doing what you do."

  • Their compassion and generosity made our last moments with our loved ones feel beautiful...
    "My grandfather, father and sister are all laid to rest at La Vista Memorial Park. It is during life’s most difficult times that we must rely on others who have knowledge to help. In my personal experience La Vista has constantly went above and beyond the limits with their superior and excellent service, their compassion and generosity made our last moments with our loved ones feel beautiful. There are no words to express our sincere gratitude during one of the lowest times in our lives. The caring and compassion they showed helped to ease the pain of the entire funeral decision making process each time."
