In the Village of Fruitvale take Kootenay Avenue southeast to Columbia Gardens Rd. where you turn right. Continue till you come to Walnut Ave on the right, the cemetery will be on your left. The north corner of the cemetery is Columbia Gardens Rd and Tamarack Ave.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Village of Fruitvale. I could tell it is well maintained, even if it was being worked on.

The irrigation system at the cemetery was being upgraded when I was there. This meant no sprinkling of the grounds while the work was being completed. The grass was getting brown and men were busy installing lines, and any other task that was needed to be done.

When I could I gave a location area, however on many toward the back on either side, I did not get a good enough notation to be sure which side they are in. There are two sides of this cemetery, with one path down the middle.

I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 16, 2003, using my digital camera. This includes all existing headstones. I would be happy to share my photos, if someone would like one of a family member's stone. I found a few names in the death records, for which there was no marker, so I have no photo.
