When will the cemetery remove my decorations?

Decorations will be removed one week after the holiday for which they are displayed. Christmas decorations will be removed in March.

Where can we decorate on the grave site?

All decorations are to be securely placed within 8" in front of the headstone or monument. Nothing is to be on the grave itself. Weeding around your decorations is your responsibility.

May I plant a tree or shrub?

Planting trees or shrubs is not permitted without the consent of  cemetery management.

Where can we decorate in the mausoleum?

 Decorate the crypt front with vases only. Do not use tape, wire or hooks on crypt fronts. Decorations are not allowed on the inside floor of the mausoleum. Vases can be purchased at the cemetery office.

Where do the cemeteries get their income to operate?

 The cemeteries must create their own income through the sale of grave sites, interments, monuments, crypts etc. Donations are also received from contributions and the Memorial Day Mass collections.

Who is responsible for the older headstones that are leaning or sinking?

 The headstones are property of the owner. A  family member must contact the cemetery to make arrangements for repair.
