Press Release

Lot owners and those caring for graves in the following City of Marinette Cemeteries; Forest Home, Congregation Montifiore, Sons of Jacob and Woodlawn may place summer decorations on graves beginning Friday, May 8, 2020.

Any floral beds upon graves must be cut out of the sod and kept weeded at all times. If decorations become unsightly due to overgrown grass or weeds, they will be removed so trimmers can trim around the marker. Decorations mounted on wire tripods are prohibited.

Please use your discretion when placing decorations that may be valuable as the city is not responsible for stolen or vandalized items. 


Gravesites of U.S. Military Veteran’s buried in City of Marinette Cemeteries (Forest Home, Woodlawn, Congregation Montifiore & Sons of Jacob) are eligible for a complementary honorary U.S. grave marker flag for placement on U.S. Military Veterans grave prior to Memorial Day. 

U.S. grave maker flags for U.S. Military Veteran graves located within family grave lots may be picked up at the Forest Home Mausoleum Office located at 2420 Mary Street during limited office hours starting Friday, May 8 through Monday, May 25. WEEKEND OFFICE HOURS ONLY 10:00 AM-2:00 PM. Please be aware that the Mausoleum staff will be maintaining the social distancing and there will only be less than 10 people allowed in the Mausoleum at one time.

Any questions regarding Cemetery Rules and Regulations pertaining to summer decorations can be directed to the City Clerk’s Office staff at (715)732-5140.
