Originally farmland, Olinger Highland Mortuary and Cemetery was established in 1952. When our funeral home was added in 1965, we became one of the first funeral home and cemetery combinations in Colorado. With the silhouette of Colorado's majestic Rocky Mountains to the west, the cemetery has graceful curved walkways, flowers and waterfall areas that provide calming places for reflection in an atmosphere of peace and serenity. Our main building features a chapel with comfortable seating for 175 people, visitation rooms and arrangement rooms. The Sanctuary of Peace, a featured garden within our cemetery, offers families a beautiful place for permanent memorialization with areas designated for cremation, family estates, bench and gated estates and private estates.
Olinger Highland Mortuary & Cemetery is proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
