Memorial Park Cemetery Compliment - Peaceful Place - Cemetery
SKOKIE, ILLINOIS -- My wife and I just interred my Grandmother at Memorial Park Cemetery in Skokie, Illinois. She was a bit late getting there to join my Grandfather (who died in 1966) since she passed away in 1991. She had purchased a niche for her cremated remains next to my Grandfather's niche when he died. There was some extra paperwork since we were bringing her from out of state and some additional fees for the interrement and plaque, but we felt these were reasonable. Betty Lerner, the cemetery facilatator, was very helpful with making the arrangements. Fortunately, we had the original documents from 1966 (deed to niche, payment receipt, etc.) and the death and cremation certificates from 1991 which were necessary for interrement. The cemetery was very well kept and the columbarium was neat and clean. It's nice to know that Granddad has been kept well and respectfully for 43 years and that we can expect the same for my Grandmother.
