Our Funeral Home Services
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. From traditional to nontraditional, Newton-Bracewell Chico Funeral Home offers a wide range of options and personalized services to meet your particular needs. The funeral home provides services to any cemetery. In addition, floral arrangements can be ordered on the premises, along with memorial plaques, urns, caskets, and vaults. Bob, Dane and the trained, sensitive staff at Newton-Bracewell Chico Funeral Home are prepared and available to help ease the burden of an emotionally difficult time.
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.
The columbarium offers marble, bronze and glass face niches, and the mausoleums exquisite Italian marble provides a beautiful, lasting memory for family members down through the ages. For those who prefer clean, dry, and permanent memorials, Chico Memorial Mausoleum is the area’s finest. The choice for mausoleum burial is increasing, thus we have an exciting new expansion plan for the near future.
Keeping with the needs of the community, Newton-Bracewell Chico Funeral Home added a crematory, making Newton-Bracewell the only funeral home in Chico with an on-site crematory, mausoleum and columbarium.
