Cemetery Department


The staff at the Cemetery Department is responsible for all burials and entombments that take place in Rice, Grace Lawn and Prairie Street Cemeteries as well as the mowing, trimming and maintenance of the grounds.

We will assist the public with the selection of burial spaces, mausoleum crypts and niches for cremated remains for both at need and future need, as well as offering help in locating hard to find burials and genealogy requests.
