Summer Decoration at Forest Home Cemetery

Lot owners and those caring for graves in the following City of Marinette Cemeteries; Forest Home, Congregation Montifiore, Sons of Jacob and Woodlawn may now place summer decorations on graves beginning Friday  May 10th, 2019.

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.

The deer and rabbit problem should be taken into consideration when placing live plants.  Your florist can recommend a type of plant that wildlife do not like.

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 weekly during normal Monday through Friday office hours from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM and on weekends starting Saturday May 11th, 2019 from 10:00 PM to 2:00 PM through Memorial Day weekend. 

US Military Veterans buried in the designated Veteran Plots within American Legion, VFW, GAR may have flags placed by the various Veteran organizations and/or volunteers prior to Memorial Day.

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.
