Founded in 1959, Olinger Hampden Gardens Mortuary & Cemetery serves the needs of approximately 225 families every year.
Our grounds cover about 28 acres, with several sections with upright markers, such as the Garden of Peace, as well as semi-private estates and the Cremation Nature Garden. The Nature Garden includes a fountain, niches for urns and an area for ground burial of ashes.
The funeral home, built in 1996, can be fully open or closed off in sections, depending upon the size of the service. Our highly trained, professional staff is always ready to help families with a wide range of services, including traditional burial and cremation. We offer valuable planning information to help individuals and families discuss and record their wishes. We also offer distinctive catering services as a convenience for families planning receptions.
