Improvements are constantly being made. New benches were installed in several locations during 2015 and early 2016, including various gazebos and the labyrinth.
New Map Sign
A new map of the cemetery, including numbered burial plots and columbaria niches, was recently erected in front of the Information Kiosk, near the flagpole to help those looking for a specific grave or columbarium niche. An alphabetical directory of those interred at Bella Vista Memorial Garden Cemetery is available for download at the Grave Site Directory page on this website.
Diseased, overgrown shrubs were recently removed from the area around Columbaria A, B, C and D at the southeast side of the property. We are pleased with the cleaner, neater look of the site.
The Astronaut Memorial was recently spruced up, thanks to Barry and Donna Fallin. It's a lovely spot to visit!
In February, the cemetery saw the construction of a third granite columbarium in the northern section of the grounds. This brings an additional 320 badly needed new niches for cremains internment. The landscaping has been done and is looking good, and some interments have already taken place.
