Many people choose to plan their cremation, burial or above ground mausoleum arrangements in advance. Preplanning, or pre-arrangement, allows YOU to determine how your final arrangements will be carried out, thus reducing family concerns and stress in the future. When you pre-arrange for yourself, you'll personally choose the service options most desirable to you. Together, we'll determine your specific needs, discuss your service and funding options, and handle the necessary paperwork.
The Evergreen Washelli funeral home, in Northern Seattle, is not only a full service facility offering virtually every service that can be requested or required, we are also very customer friendly and easily accessible in your time of need. The main chapel is fully equipped with audiovisual equipment. We have the ability to play musical segments from your favorite CDs and produce a complete memorable video tribute. We can hold services during the week, on Saturdays, in the evening or on Sundays to better fit the schedules of the families we serve.
Cremation offers a variety of choices, from a simple gathering to an elaborate, traditional ceremony. No matter what you choose, we will help create an experience that fits the needs of your family. Evergreen Washelli offers a variety of cremation options to fit your needs, ranging from basic direct cremation (without visitation or services) to customized cremation services with visitation and a funeral or memorial service.
Evergreen Washelli Cemetery- A cemetery is a historic place and a walk through Evergreen Washelli's buildings and grounds gives a sense of heritage.
Abbey View Memorial Park- Abbey View Memorial Park was founded by the Evergreen Washelli Memorial Park in 1953.

Evergreen Washelli is proud to offer The Natural Legacy green plans. These were designed with the intent to minimize our impact on the environment.
Our plans include eco-friendly, handcrafted Sea Grass and Willow caskets, which may be used for either burial or cremation. Each casket is hand-crafted by skilled weavers and features a natural cotton interior.
Why willow or sea grass? These plants are sustainable crops that grow quickly, require no fertilizer and are easy to harvest. In addition, willow plants can rehabilitate soil fertility and bird and insect habitat, as well as preventing erosion.
We have also introduced the zero-impact Savannah urn. With its handcrafted rattan and cotton materials and biodegradable packaging, it is a perfect choice for the ecologically-minded.
