Celebrate the Holidays

Since 1942, it has been a tradition at Cedar Memorial to celebrate the holidays. We hope you'll join us for another season filled with holiday music, thousands of lights, and beautiful decorations! 

Holiday Lights and Nativity Scene

The Chapel of Memories Mausoleum will be decorated with festive trees, wreaths, ornaments and thousands of lights through Sunday, January 5. The Mausoleum is open 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Saturday and 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Sundays. The mausoleum will stay open to 7:00 PM Sunday, December 15 for the Holiday Music Legacy Program.

Support Horizons Meals on Wheels
Pre-addressed envelopes will be available during the Holiday Music Legacy Program (and in the funeral home office during regular office hours) for making donations to Horizons Meals on Wheels. This important community resource provided over 270,310 meals in 2018 to individuals in our community who wouldn't have otherwise been able to eat. The program delivers meals not only to the elderly and shut-ins; but there are also congregate meal sites, summer meals for area children, and childcare meals. The Associates of Cedar Memorial were proud to present to Horizons Meals on Wheels a check for $2,889.10 in September. Through Cedar Memorial's Summer Benefit Picnics the Associates raised $1,444.55, which was then matched by John and Dina Linge, third generation owners of Cedar Memorial.

Tree of Memories
At the beginning of December each year, we erect a "Tree of Memories" in the Chapel of Memories Mausoleum. You are invited to place a special angel ornament on the tree in honor of a loved one.

FREE 2020 Calendars
The 2020 calendar features photography of beautiful Cedar Memorial Park. FREE calendars will be available during the Holiday Music Legacy Program. They will also be available at Cedar Memorial offices and The Flower Shop during regular office hours.
