Local Woman Organized East Lawn Cemetery

Posted: Updated:

Finding loved ones at East Lawn Cemetery is now much easier, thanks in part to a local woman.

Cemetery Secretary and Treasurer Mary Jo Bassett took it upon herself to make a name registry for the Cemetery.

It took Bassett two weeks to walk the whole plot, writing down nearly 1900 names.

Now, anyone who visits can easily find their loved one by looking at the rotating index.

"Yes I've gotten a lot of comments and people thanking me. I've also gotten why isn't the grass greener."

Bassett calls her design a huge improvement from the original maps.
