Prior to our family ownership, Pacific View Memorial Chapel was operated by a large out of state corporation. In 2010 two Funeral Directors, both having homes on the Oregon coast and long time friends of the Bateman family, purchased the businesses from the out of state operators.
Brian Norris who resides with his family in Newport, Oregon and David Schroeder, a long-time Oregon coast native are the co-owners of Pacific View Memorial Chapel. Our local on-site manager is Guinevere Tolbert who resides in Lincoln City. We are unique in the fact that our local family owned and managed funeral homes and cemeteries operate the only certified “on-site” crematories with certified technicians in Lincoln County. This assures no out of town transport costs and the highest private professional standards available. We also have relationships with other family owned locations serving the greater Portland Metro Area and most of the northwest. Our facilities have a focus on maintaining a simple, modern and pleasant office environment, not the old fashioned funeral parlor look.
We understand that today the cost of most things is important to everyone. Our family owned philosophy of providing the best service, facilities and care at the most reasonable price is our goal. We serve most Oregon coastal and surrounding communities.
