Our Facility

Members of the Ave Maria Memorial Chapel staff pride themselves in providing a wide variety of choices including personalized services, cremation memorials and traditional funerals. We feel that serving you is a privilege, and understand that the loss of a loved one is a very personal experience.

Ave Maria Memorial Chapel is housed in a lovely 9,804-square-foot Spanish-style building that was transformed from a Victorian home in 1941. The funeral home features two arrangement rooms and three visitation rooms. Guests will find ample parking at our facility, which is conveniently located in downtown Watsonville, just 85 miles southwest of the San Francisco International Airport.

At Ave Maria Memorial Chapel, we believe that every life is unique, and every funeral should be too. We celebrate life. Whether you need immediate assistance or have questions about one of our affordable prearrangement plans, our knowledgeable and helpful staff members are here to help. We offer The Simplicity Plan® prearrangement program, an easy way to handle an important family responsibility.
