Susan’s story

Our plot was bought in the early 1900s by my great grandmother, Elizabeth. The graves there are hers, her son’s, my uncle, my grandmother, my mother and my father. So much family history in one place. My favorite memory of Lakewood is when I was a child, our family would walk to Lakewood from our home on Pillsbury Ave. on Memorial Day to put flowers on the graves. I remember it as such a beautiful place. My husband and I, who live in Oregon, have bought a plot “across the street” from the family plot, where our cremated remains will be buried. I like to think that I will be back near the family, in a place with so many memories.
