Our Lady of Guadalupe mausoleum opens at Rose Hills
WHITTIER — A new mausoleum dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe opened at Rose Hills Memorial Park last week.
The memorial features space for above-ground burials as well as glass-front niches.
The mausoleum houses an original foundation stone gifted by the Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe in Mexico City.
“Our Lady of Guadalupe Mausoleum is an open-air, single-story terraced garden mausoleum like no other,” Rose Hills said in a statement. “Designed in California Mission style, the architecture celebrates our heritage and pays homage to our history. Inside, the mausoleum will house premium glass-front niches, specialty aboveground memorial options and a reliquary that enshrines the blessed image of Our Lady of Guadalupe and foundation stone from the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.
“The exterior will include a series of undulating open-air mausoleum spaces, urn gardens, a niche plaza roof and a beautiful center courtyard with a trellis and fountain.”
