Our facility

Our facility is pleasant and comfortable, however we're planning on expanding to accommodate the growing number of families we serve. We think that Santa Fe is in need for an updated funeral home designed around the ideas of the families being served. We are proud to consider ourselves well versed in meeting the various needs of the diverse residents of Santa Fe and surrounding areas.  


Memorial Gardens Cemetery is a a special place in our community. Since 1954 it has been a non-denominational cemetery open to everyone in the community. In November of 2006 the property was purchased by the Rivera Family Funeral Homes, and work and renovation was immediately started. Headstones were cleaned, raised and leveled, and old tree stumps were being removed. The entire irrigation system was replaced and updated, and roads were being maintained better. We do need some time to complete the improvements on the cemetery, and are appreciative of your patience. We want the cemetery to be a place of solace and peace for visitors. 

Hours of Operation

For emergencies, our staff is available 24 hours a day throughout the year.  Our business office is open Monday-Friday 8am to 5pm, weekend & holiday hours by appointment and as determined when services are scheduled.
