History | Santa Teresa Cemetery

Santa Teresa Cemetery is located adjacent to the historical Morales Cemetery, which was founded in 1940 by Felix and Angela Morales.

Since its first burial in 1940, Morales cemetery thrived and became a place where Hispanic families could bury their loved ones and honor their lives with their traditions.

In 2006, Mr. Joe P. Darst — with over thirty years of cemetery management experience — recognized the need for a cemetery with Perpetual Care and an improved Rules and Regulations policy. The inspiration for the new name is dedicated to the late Theresa Darst (Mr. Darst's sister) and to Mrs. Morales' fondness for Saint Teresa.

We here at Santa Teresa strive every day to provide families with a caring and respectful experience, in addition to a serene and beautiful environment for visits. With the perpetual care funding, we can ensure that the final resting place of your loved ones will be preserved for generations to come.
