Sunset View Cemetery

At the end of a very busy little street in El Cerrito sits Sunset View Cemetery.  Mike and I found out the hard way that the cemetery is deceptively large.  No chance of just stumbling across someone here.  Come prepared by calling the office first.

From the top of the hill one can see from Sausalito in the North Bay to San Francisco.  All but the side that overlooks the bay is surrounded by tall, beautiful trees.  Birds and squirrels were everywhere.  The only audible sound was the wind.

I thought I'd do this post a little differently and just show a few pictures of the cemetery.


  1. That looks like a wonderful place. Thanks for all your photos! You've inspired me to visit.

  2. Oh how sweet! Thank you so much. It is really a nice cemetery. You will enjoy your visit there.

  3. Jeannie - I am the great grandson of Walter Rose Van Sickler and saw that you had left virtual flowers on his grave record on I am looking for more on the Van Sickler family tree. Can we share.

    1. Hi! I'm very happy to chat with you about the Van Sickler family. You can reach me through my Van Sickle/r page on Facebook or write to me direct at themiyamas at hotmail dot com
