Jerry Govier - Cemetery Counselor East Lawn Sierra Hills

Jerry Govier, and his devoted wife, Mary Beth, moved to the Sacramento area in 2001. Jerry worked for several years in the East Lawn Mortuary and in 2007 he transferred to East Lawn Sierra Hills Cemetery where he serves today.

Prior to moving to Sacramento, Jerry lived 20 years in the San Francisco Bay area working for 5 different cemeteries and 7 mortuaries. Jerry experienced many changes and developments, as well as ownership and managerial changes, during that time in the funeral profession.

Jerry believes that informing, educating and keeping costs in perspective for a family's budget, as well as honesty and a practical approach, best helps a family in their decision making process and is also key for success in the mortuary and cemetery profession. Pre-arrangements are an important tool for both families and the mortuary or cemetery in achieving a successful relationship.
