San Marcos Chapel & Vista Chapel

Our Family Serving Yours Since 1964

At Allen Brothers Mortuary, Inc., we take great pride in caring for our families, and will work tirelessly to provide you with a beautiful, lasting tribute to your loved one.  We put our family name and reputation into serving every family we assist. Our family has lived in the Vista and San Marcos communities since 1964 and many of the families we have served over the years are friends and neighbors. We hope you'll choose our family to help your family.

In addition to the services we offer, you will receive a complimentary online memorial that you can share with family and friends. While honoring your loved one is our top priority, we also want to help you through this difficult time. We have a wide range of resources to support you not only today, but in the weeks and months to come.

Below are some options you may consider.  See our Personalization Options for other ways we can help you create a loving final farewell. 

Please feel welcome to call our San Marcos Chapel at 760-744-4522 or our Vista Chapel at 760-726-2555.

We're here to help and we're just a phone call away.


Online Memorial Tribute

The ones we lose are in our hearts and memories forever.  Our COMPLIMENTARY online Memorial Tribute goes beyond the obituary that may be printed in a local newspaper, allowing families to come together, relive special moments and celebrate the unique legacy of a loved one. Friends and family can upload an unlimited number of photos and share stories from anywhere. Your loved one touched the lives of so many, and an online Memorial Tribute makes it easier than ever to share memories across the miles.  

Once the initial tribute page is set up by our staff, we will provide you with your personalized login password.  You can send email links to friends and relatives, select music and background settings, etc. and upload an unlimited number of photos.  Unlike newspaper tribute pages, our Allen Brothers Mortuary Memorial Tribute page remains live and free of any fees unless/until you send a written request to have the page closed.

The online Memorial Tribute helps reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the service for your loved one. We post the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your Facebook or Twitter page or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it.


Funeral Fund Donations

Ordering Flowers 

We realize the expense of a funeral can be a burden. We provide the option for friends and family to make monetary donations to help cover funeral costs. These gifts can be made easily and securely online through our website, and are paid directly to the funeral home on behalf of the donor, up to the maximum of your funeral costs.

If you would like this option, please let us know so we can add it to your loved one's Online Memorial Tribute page.

We make it easy for friends and family to send flowers to your home or service to honor your loved one. We have partnered with local florists to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page of our website. You can also use this feature to select the flowers you would like at the service. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home. 

The Online Memorial Tribute page provides the florist the pertinent details for your loved one's service.


On-Site Reception Rooms

Our reception rooms offer a convenient and comfortable setting for you to share old memories and create new ones with family and friends during the visitation or after the funeral services for your loved one.  Most families appreciate this as an alternative to hosting a gathering in their home, club house, or restaurant.

Each reception room includes tables and chairs, and a kitchen area that includes a full-size refrigerator with icemaker, 40-cup coffee maker, microwave, sink, and table and counter space for catered or potluck meals.  There is also a 60 inch flat screen TV with multi-format media player for your guests to enjoy.  The reception room includes a comfortable area for young children, with books and stuffed animals. 

Use of the reception room is COMPLIMENTARY during your visitation/viewing or funeral service (up to 3 hours maximum).
