THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Kiosk At Riverside Cemetery To Help Identify Grave Sites
Issue Date: June 21, 2018
A new kiosk that will hold a map to assist people looking for burial sites has been installed at Peshtigo Riverside Cemetery. The kiosk was constructed to honor Sextons, Gary (Tiny) Keller, Helen Borths, Joel Guay and current Sexton John Garon and is located at the entrance to the cemetery.
The kiosk was one of the projects members of the Riverside Cemetery Board had wanted to complete for a long time according to Kathy Crabtree, board president. Dick McFarland did the actual construction for the project and all materials were donated by Lois Walters and Kathy Crabtree. McFarland stated it took him approximately 40 hours of volunteer time to construct the kiosk.
Future projects the Cemetery Board would like to get done include, road repairs, upgrade equipment, new wiring, new water system, obtain a port-a-potty, along with a future area set aside for cremation plots
Sexton Garon thanked Al Urbaniak for all his work in getting the new Vietnam Memorial completed. He also thanked Frank's Logging, Erik's Garden Center, Peshtigo Stone and Garden as well as many anonymous donors for the water spigots and garden hoses that were recently donated to the cemetery.
Donations for the projects are being accepted and can be sent to Riverside Cemetery P.O. Box 14, Peshtigo WI. 54157. If anyone is looking for the burial site of a loved one they can go to www.peshtigoriversidecemetery.com then go to the image gallery tab to view the sites. Most of the sites will include photos of the grave markers.
