Blooming Glen Mennonite Church

Mr. Gross, church elder at Blooming Glen Mennonite Church is explaining to a group of students the history of the cemetery and the story of many of the people who are buried there. It is hard to tell a person's whole story because a gravestone really only tells who the person was, how old they were when they died, and sometimes has a message that says, "Gone but not Forgotton" or, "R.I.P.", which stands for rest in peace.


All of the graves pictured here are found at the Blooming Glen Mennonite Church. Here there are buried people as young as...

 two days old to as old as...    eighty-eight.
