Sunset Garden’s has been Celebrating Lives in the Tri-Cities and the surrounding region since 1958.

Einan’s at Sunset, Cemetery at Sunset and Events at Sunset work together to help you create a celebration and memory that befits you and your family.

While staying true to our roots and heritage we believe that traditional funeral homes are quickly becoming a thing of the past. As we continue to provide traditional service we understand the demand for a new focus on the journey of life- celebrating the life that has been lived, not the death.
