In 1930, the Chico Memorial Mausoleum was erected to serve the needs of the community. Since then, new corridors have been added, creating Chico’s only exclusive indoor mausoleum and columbarium. Upon entering the mausoleum, you are greeted with a sweeping wall mural of the Last Supper, and as you proceed past each corridor, there are beautiful stained glass windows, each with their own story.

Newton-Bracewell Chico Funeral Home was originally founded as the CHICO FUNERAL HOME in 1955 by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mabrey. Today the funeral home is Chico’s most elegant mortuary, surrounded in a rainbow of stained glass windows. The rich, warm colors of the chapel interior offers a beautiful but conservative setting for both small and large services.

Keeping with the needs of the community, Newton-Bracewell Chico Funeral Home is the only funeral home in Chico with an on-site crematory, mausoleum and columbarium.
