VALLEY MEMORIAL CEMETERY - PALMER - SURNAMES G

Valley Memorial Park is located beyond the Knik River at mile 12.8 on the Old Glenn Highway near Bodenburg Butte, a well known landmark in the area. The 7 acre cemetery was established in 1962 and Angelus assumed management and care of the Park in 1983.
As you enter through the stone pillars and wrought iron gates, your eyes are drawn to the Monument of Flags at the crest of the hill that is the backdrop of the cemetery. As you survey the surrounding area, Matanuska and Pioneer Peaks and Lazy Mountain are just a few of the easily identifiable landmarks.

History of Valley Memorial Park

Valley Memorial Park, formerly known as Valley Memory Gardens, was established in 1962. It's original owners ended up in bankruptcy some years later. Burials began in 1964. Angelus Memorial Park bought the bankrupt Valley Memory Gardens in 1983. At that time, the perpetual care fund was depleted, one gravestone sat 150 feet away from the holder's grave, and records were in a confused mess. People who had bought lots and paid for burial services at the cemetery lost more than $1 million in the bankruptcy. All of the cemetery buildings and equipment were lost.
