Gravestone enscription reads: "Paul Olson Mathews, Our Beloved Son, Born: April 30, 1982 - Died: May 4, 1982, The children, like the flowers, Some live for years, some live hours, But the joy is just the same, When you're giving them your name, and the memory lasts forever, Of the first time that you touch 'em, And you realize you'll love 'em through it all, That's just the way it is with our Paul."

Chino Valley Cemetery consists of one (1) acre of land that was deeded to the city by Herbert Rees (b. 1913 - d. 1970) to use as a cemetery. It was deeded so that it could be kept tax-free; there has never been a charge for burial there. The first graves date back to the 1920s. Improvements are made to the cemetery through donations and by volunteers.
