Homedale has no cemetery within its city boundaries. Early settlers were often buried in the Wilder Cemetery in Canyon County or in the cemeteries in Caldwell or Nampa, also in Canyon County. A new cemetery was established in the 1960s, located about half-way between Homedale and Marsing, called the Marsing-Homedale Cemetery. Many of the former residents of the Homedale area are now buried there.
