About Us

Arza Garlinghouse, 52, relocated to Lewiston, Idaho in 1903 and opened Lewiston Marble and Granite
Works. Arza grew up in Kansas and was taught to be a stonecutter by his father, who had learned the
trade prior to the Civil War. The business has been located on Lewiston’s Main Street ever since. It has
moved several times but has always remained on Main Street. The business has been passed down
from Arza to his son Arthur, to his son Richard (Dick), and finally to his son Jac. The business moved to
its current location, 1603 Main Street in 1945 and changed its name to Garlinghouse Memorials.

Dick’s wife Eldora, also worked in the business for over 50 years. In 1988 both Dick and their son Jac, died. Eldora
continued running the business until her retirement in 1991 when the business was sold to Gary and Kay
Stilson also owned and operated Colfax Monument in Colfax, Washington. In 2019, Gary & Kay
retired, selling both businesses to long-time employee Sheyanna Weber. Sheyanna and her team are
committed to continuing the Garlinghouse tradition of excellence in quality, doing all the work locally in-
house and putting the customer first. They are knowledgeable in all aspects of cemetery work, onsite
engraving, monument installation, restoration, and cleaning. We look forward to helping families
Celebrate the Life of their loved ones.

During this difficult time of having to make a large purchase for something no one “wants” to have to do, Sheyanna was wonderful to work with to choose my grandparents’ headstone. She explained everything to us, ideas, colors of granite, how things will look, and ideas for pictures to add. She also took my mom & I out back to see how the different colors of stone look in the sunshine versus inside the building. She explained costs & the cemetery rules for what we can & can’t have there. She was pleasant, helpful, & very friendly. I had no idea on what to expect when heading to help my mom with this difficult task but something that needed to get done. I left feeling very reassured about what my mom & I picked out taking both my grandparents’ wishes into consideration. If you are ever faced with having to go through the process of headstone shopping, I definitely recommend Garlinghouse. She’s even giving out free masks to customers that she’s made!

I’m so glad that I decided to work with Garlinghouse Memorials to help create my Mother's tombstone. I had a little idea about how I wanted the stones designed, and they went above and beyond to help me have all that I wanted and more displayed. They were very thorough and double checked spelling and dates before the final draft was submitted. All employees were very friendly and helpful throughout the whole process, and made sure it was exactly how I had envisioned it. I highly recommend them to anybody in need of these kinds of services!

Garlinghouse Memorials has very caring employees who take the time to ask questions about your loved one and try to design a memorial for that individual that really speaks to who they were! I also appreciated that they do all work in house, and do not send out for the design and creation. They really take pride in all of their work and it shows with the hands on experience.

I had Garlinghouse do the head stone for my mom and brother. They did exactly what I wanted and it came out absolutely beautiful.

We live a distance from Lewiston and were in need of a grave marker. We contacted Garlinghouse Memorials and were able to conduct all business over the phone and via emails. Cheyenna in the office was excellent and made our selection easy for us. Thank you!!

I had my grandparents stone reset after 33 years of weather wearing away the concrete. The staff at Garlinghouse Memorials were helpful and supportive during the entire process. When the need comes, I will patronize their business again..
