Fall 2023 Newsletter and Open House

Greetings from Gethsemane Cemetery!

We’re excited to introduce you to our Fall Open House Newsletter. Our semi-annual open house is a wonderful opportunity for you to visit us, explore our offerings, verify existing records, or seek answers to any questions you might have. And the best part? There’s no need to book an appointment– just come by whenever you’re ready, with no obligations. Our Open House will be on Saturday October 21st and Sunday October 22nd from 12p to 4p at Gethsemane Cemetery.

Additionally, in the spirit of the open house, we’re pleased to offer a 10% discount and special, interest-free financing. Whether your preferences lean toward cremation, traditional burial, niches, or you are looking to design a headstone, we’re here to guide and assist. Looking forward to seeing you!

People do not want to burden loved ones with planning their final burial arrangements, but often struggle with how to start the conversation. We provide you with the education, resources and options to have that conversation, empowering your loved ones and relieving the burden, when it matters most.
