History

The Robinson family has been serving families for over 120 years.

 

The Robinson family attributes the company’s growth and status as one of the finest funeral homes in the country to “the loyalty of the families we have served as well as the staff of caring and dedicated employees.”

 

In 1992, Robinson Memorial Gardens was established from 10 acres of the Richey family farm and almost 60 acres from the Satterfield family.

 

The first phase included building two stately brick and wrought iron landscaped entrances and a beautiful Bell Tower Mausoleum equipped with a Schulmerich Carillon Bell System. The bell chimes daily in remembrance of all the loved ones laid to rest in Robinson Memorial Gardens.

 

The Bell Tower Garden consists of ten sections, all of which are greatly enhanced by curbing and are lined with trees, shrubs, and flower beds. An Arbor Garden surrounds the Bell Tower Mausoleum and serves as the focal point of Robinson Memorial Gardens.

 

A Veterans Garden of Honor was developed for Veterans and their families. Bronze plaques representing each branch of service are displayed on the brick Wall of Honor with the American Flag flying daily, honoring those who served our country.

 

After the first phase of this massive project developing farmland into the Robinson Memorial Gardens was finished, a dedication ceremony was held on October 23, 1994.  By that time, forty-six people had already been laid to rest.

 

In November 1998, the construction of the Chapel of Reflection Mausoleum was announced. The two-level mausoleum rises majestically above a one acre reflecting pond with a direct sight line to the Bell Tower Mausoleum.

 

The Chapel of Reflection is a one of a kind mausoleum including 930 crypts and 300 niches. The entrance dons an Italian tiled foyer flanked by graceful Palladian windows, which leads you into a larger foyer where all of the glass-front interior niches are located.

 

The interior opening provides an awe-inspiring view of the 120 square foot stained glass window featuring a mountain scene with Psalm 121 as its inspiration. The Chapel of Reflection Mausoleum offers a wide variety of crypt and cremation niche configurations. Whatever your choice, you can be assured your loved one will be memorialized in the most beautiful mausoleum.

 

On September 7, 2001, following the completion of the mausoleum, there was a groundbreaking ceremony for a funeral home to be built adjacent to Robinson Memorial Gardens. Robinson needed to expand in order to best serve their increasing number of families.

 

In January 2003, the approximate 25,000 square foot, two level Williamsburg style building opened as a full-service funeral home. Superior to any funeral home in the area, the new location contains four visitation rooms, a spacious chapel, casket selection room, cremation selection room, a crematory, and a wing of the building devoted to Robinson Memorial Gardens, allowing a family to make all of their funeral and cemetery plans in one place.

 

Our dedication to providing families with the latest and best facilities available has allowed us to be the top funeral and cremation provider in the area.
