Memorial Park Cemetery, Edmond OK

On a recent visit to my daughter’s house in OKC I ask if she would take me to a couple of cemeteries I had noticed previously when shopping in Edmond. 

Memorial Park Cemetery was the first stop. The stone wall was intriguing to me. This cemetery is a mix of old world and new corporate cemetery. Dignity is the current owner and caretaker of this vast 175 acre cemetery.  Yes , 175  acres. Dignity has preserved the classic buildings from the 1930’s while still providing for a variety of new that people expect.

Along with the stone wall the original chapel remains open and used when requested. The stone bell tower with reflecting pool is a piece of art and has a working bell in the tower. The ivy growing on one side of the bell tower makes you wonder if you haven’t stepped back in time.

The new funeral home has been built across the street which shows a respect for the original grounds and building. The staff was kind and willing to answer questions when I popped in on a Saturday.

Andover KS Cemetery

Andover KS has a beautiful and peaceful town cemetery. Like most small town cemeteries it is peaceful, well cared for, and unique. The cemetery has trees, all sizes and shapes of monuments, a gazebo, benches, and of course a well pump for visitors to use. The cemetery is behind a beautiful white metal arch and fence and flagpoles align the street entrance.

What I love most about small town cemeteries is the pride the community has for the cemetery and the former residents of their town.
