Inc.", our new not-for-profit corporation established in 2015 to
assist the Association with fund-raising efforts and other cemetery
The primary mission of the Lake View Cemetery Association is to provide appropriate burial services and facilities
to the families and individuals of our local area. To this end we have established, and will continue to develop, a
cemetery that meets the continuing, yet ever-changing needs and desires of our community. Cemeteries
and communities evolve over time, and the Lake View Cemetery Association recognizes the importance of
providing a sense of continuity to the public, along with the responsibility of safeguarding the history embodied in
the lives of our forebears. Lake View Cemetery strives to be many things beyond just a place of burial. It is a place
of reflection, contemplation, and memorialization - a place where both nature's and man's art can co-exist and
enhance each other. We pledge to preserve and present all these things to the public we serve in a dignified and
respectful manner, ever mindful of our responsibility to the living, as well as those who have gone before us.
