St. Richard’s Episcopal Church, located in the striking, mountain setting of Skyforest, offers a serene Memorial Garden for interment of people of all faiths. Amid tranquil, mountain landscaping, this quarter-acre site provides both a beautiful final resting place and a peaceful meditation garden for visitors.
Within the lovely, bricked central area, interments are in unmarked, undesignated locations, and engraved pavers with name and birth/death years are placed in the circle. There is a tax-deductible donation of $375 for members of St Richard’s and their families or $700 for all others. All interments are recorded in the Parish Register. Pre-need purchase is available. All monies received are used for the perpetual care of the garden.
For those wishing to have ashes interred, the church is available to perform the full burial office according to the Book of Common Prayer of the Episcopal Church or a short and simple Committal may be performed in the garden.
Memorial bricks, engraved with name and dates, may be purchased for $200 those one wishes to remember who are not interred in the garden. These will be placed within the inner circle.
