Donations

The serenity of Glenwood Cemetery will continue to be preserved when you make a contribution to help maintain the splendor of the cemetery and it’s grounds. As you may know, many trees and stones have been damaged over the last year due to wind storms and other types of weather. Your donation will be used to get our landscaping, grounds, gardens and monuments back to the aesthetic level you and your family deserve.  


Any donation is greatly appreciated!

Glenwood Cemetery Book

Submit Your Family’s Story !

Shelley Richards, author of two volumes on neighboring St. Patrick's Cemetery, is now writing a book that features historic Glenwood Cemetery.


She is requesting articles from family and friends about cemetery residents to be included in the book. Up to 2 photos can be submitted with each story, which can be no longer than 400 words. Each story can focus on a single person, or preferably, a couple. She reserves the right to edit stories to fit the format of the book. Also If people have any historical photos they would like to submit, they can be included (without a story) and they will be given photo credit in the photo section of the book.


Among chapters to be included are the stories, cemetery history, special places in the cemetery, as well as maps of the various sections. There will also be color photos of some of the outstanding monuments and mausoleums located throughout the cemetery.


As with her previous St. Patrick’s Cemetery Volumes I and II, she will donate her portion of the proceeds from book sales to the Glenwood Cemetery Association to assist them with their current financial challenges. She will be assisted by Lockport resident Mary Ann Cutter.


The book is tentatively scheduled for publishing in late summer/early fall 2020. Please submit your stories and photos by December 1, 2019 to Shelley at [GlenCemBook@gmail.com](GlenCemBook@gmail.com). If you would like some assistance in creating your story, please contact me at that email as well and I can send you a sample biography to use as a guide.
