Sunrise Memorial Cemetery, Vallejo
About Sunrise Memorial Cemetery, Vallejo
Sunrise was owned by the Masons and Oddfellows organizations and run with endowment money, since 1879. But those organizations dissolved over time, leaving former members to run Sunrise’s operation.
Over the years, as Sunrise’s endowment dwindled and costs rose, grounds upkeep suffered and the business side fell into disorganization.
Sunrise’s endowment fund contains about $600,000 and one industrial-strength lawn mower costs about $20,000. So there just aren’t enough funds to keep the cemetery in good shape.
