Letter from the President

Greenwood Cemetery’s website. Cemeteries are important historical assets that enlighten us about a community’s past. Rich in history and natural beauty, cemeteries are an irreplaceable part of our heritage. But most importantly, they are monuments to the people who once inhabited our communities.

Greenwood Cemetery has a vibrant past that was nearly forgotten, however, under new ownership and with the support of the community, Greenwood Cemetery is on the path of revitalization. Whether you live in the community or have a love of rural cemeteries we invite you to partner with us by volunteering at one of our events, posting suggestions, or by making a donation.

Our website also serves as a guide to the cemetery’s services, policies, and future products. We hope you enjoy the web visit and encourage you to e-mail us or stop by and visit.

Sincerely,
Michelle Mardenborough
President, Knights of Pythias Greenwood Cemetery
