New funeral home and cemetery to open in Pearland with Katy connection

Posted

Service Corporation International, North America’s largest provider of funeral, cemetery and cremation services – as well as the operator of Katy Funeral Home – will open a new funeral home to serve communities south of Houston such as Pearland and Friendswood. Forest Park South Funeral Home, which is currently under construction, is expected to be completed in mid-June.

The new funeral home and cemetery will be located on FM 359 at the proposed future intersection of Settegast Ranch Road. The new development will span more than 50 acres and feature a state-of-the-art multipurpose event center. The facility will provide a welcoming environment for both traditional funerals and contemporary memorial services. Its flexible, open design will also serve as the ideal venue for a variety of events such as celebrations of life, parties and receptions, and community gatherings.  

“As more people choose to make west Houston their home, we are pleased to expand our services and legacy of compassionate care to the greater Houston community,” said Houston Market Managing Director Michael White.

The event center and cemetery are expected to open first to be followed by a funeral home at an as-yet-unspecified date.

Forest Park Southwest Cemetery will be designed as a tranquil resting place for people of all faiths and cultures, and will accommodate a wide range of interment options, including traditional in-ground burial, above-ground entombment, cremation memorials and private family estates.  Professionals will be available to guide families who have recently lost loved ones or to assist with pre-planning arrangements including traditional burial planning and cremation, designing a religious ceremony or a celebration of life.

“We are committed to the families we serve and to providing them with a peaceful and beautiful environment for honoring and visiting their loved ones,” White said.
