Christmas is a time to love and remember those we have loved and cared for. As some face this holiday season, after the death of a loved one, it is difficult to know how to express the love that still exists for that significant person who has been a part of their lives. A Christmas Tree Lighting Service time of remembrance and dedication will be held on Sunday, December 8 2019 at 4:00 PM in the Chapel of the Community Garden Mausoleum at Muscatine Memorial Park Cemetery.
Individuals names will be called and families are encouraged to bring their own personalized Christmas Tree Ornament to hang on the tree in dedication of their loved one. The community and friends of families are also welcome to attend.
Families may order additional ornaments by clicking on the box below.
