The Memorial Garden plans began in 1978 and became the final resting place for a number of our Church members. It is a beautiful sanctuary for loved ones and friends who have gone before us. It is a place of comfort and remembrances of love and gratitude.
Having worked with memorials and interments for over 15 years, I would like to give you information on how you may purchase a memorial plot. First, you must be a member to buy a place in the garden. There are two sizes: full plots will accommodate 9 interments and half plots that hold 4 urns. The urns are buried in the ground below the site of the memorial tablets that are then engraved with the name and date of birth and death. Every site is identified with a number in the lower right side of the tablet.
The care and maintenance of the garden will be under the supervision of the Board of Trustees of the Church. Each permit sold has a signed contract—one given to the member who purchases the site and one kept in the Church office. Please call the Church office at any time for additional information.
