You are now able to access a map (**SEE ABOVE!**) of the cemetery that will identify a gravesite you are interested in.  Our current data computer data base now has complete information including photos of monuments, markers, and contact information in addition to specifics about the deceased.  

The parish thanks Frank Steel for the over 2,100 hours of volunteer hours in automating and populating the data base!


Thank you to the Men’s Club, Maintenance Staff and the Cemetery Committee members for keeping the cemetery looking good. Special thanks to Tom Hermanson for mowing the cemetery grass all summer and Tom and Carol Kub for their volunteer time in taking care of all the trimming around monuments and markers.


If you have any questions about the cemetery in general or specific gravesites feel free to email Frank Steel or Denny Farrell. We both prefer emails rather than phone calls.
