Memorializing a loved one reflects a deep, personal expression of that person’s individuality and is an important part of the historical record of a life well lived. Riverside Cemetery offers unique options for traditional interments, cremation, mausoleum entombments, and all other memorialization needs. Each memorial is different and can include the name, dates of life, a meaningful quote or religious adage, or artwork. Markers, made of Georgia marble, granite or bronze, can be upright, in statuary form, or flush with the ground. The wishes of the loved one or their family will be accommodated as they fall within the overall design concept of the cemetery.
Even if a loved one’s remains were scattered according to their wishes, families may choose to erect a marker at Riverside to memorialize their life and provide a place to visit in their memory. The placement of a marker here provides inclusion of a loved one in our online record-keeping database so that friends, family, and future generations can search for and find obituary information and a memorial record including a photograph and the location of the memorial.
