Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.
Learn the legacy.
Greenlawn Memorial Park was established in 1953 by Fred King and Fred T. "Tombstone" Davis. The Tips family acquired the cemetery in 1987 and began construction on the funeral home in 1992. West Gethsemane, originally owned by Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Rosenberg was developed in 1931 and was dedicated in 1932. It became part of the Davis family in 1953 and part of the Tips family in 1987 along with Greenlawn Memorial Park. Serving families has always been our focus. We take pride in being able to guide people through some of their most difficult days. We take pride in maintaining a setting that allows people to find solace. Celebrating life is our mission. That’s never changed, and with pride, it never will.
