About Us

History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Maui Memorial Park opened in 1964. In 1969 the park became the first truly modern memorial park on Maui, comparable with or even surpassing in beauty many of the finest memorial parks in the country. 

Professionally planned and landscaped, built with the utmost care and skill, and perpetually maintained, Maui Memorial Park has become an everlasting beautiful garden sanctuary. Dignified architecture, religious memorials of all faiths, a semi-circular tile memorial dedicated to veterans of all services of the United States of America, and originally 10 acres, now over 17, of tenderly cared-for lawns enhance the beauty of the Park. 



The Park's location - on a gentle slope facing the majestic West Maui Mountains and the historic Iao Valley - is one of tranquility and inspiration. Our mausoleum has seven distinctive rooms representing the Island's religious faiths.  A 17th Century altar table originally from the Royal Household of Japan is placed in the Altar Room Columbarium on the 2nd floor.

Maui Memorial Park in association with Nakamura Mortuary simplify the funeral and burial process enabling families to make all their arrangements at one convenient location. We assist you in creating a uniquely personal service, which is more than just a funeral, cremation or burial arrangement: one that will represent a Celebration of a Life Lived.

Who We Are

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

That decision led Christina to the start of her career in the cemetery profession. In June 2014, Christina came to Maui Memorial Park as a Clerical & Administrative Specialist. After her first encounter with a family who had lost their son unexpectedly, she knew that she had made the right career decision. In April 2016, she was promoted to the Location Office Manager for Maui Memorial Park and Nakamura Mortuary.
