Memorial Benches, Trees, & Roses

Memorial benches are just one of the ways the City of Pendleton offers to recognize an organization or to memorialize a loved one.  Benches may be placed in a City park, along the Pendleton River Parkway, in Olney Cemetery, or in the Memorial Garden within the cemetery. Each area has a bench style that we recommend, but all have engraving options. We'd love to tell you more about this program, so please give us a call and we will help you consider your options.

(The bench pictured here is our Memorial Garden bench.)

 

MEMORIAL TREES

Honor your loved one with a living memorial or recognize a special occasion. Dirt Dabblers Garden Club, in connection with the City of Pendleton Parks Department, is now offering a memorial tree program.

  • Donors may choose from a list of approved trees.
  • Donors may choose a Pendleton city park or Olney Cemetery; city staff will determine the specific location.
  • The tree is purchased through the Garden Club and the Club arranges planting with the City.
  • Each tree will be marked with a marker at the base of the tree and the person's name will be added to a master list posted on bulletin boards in the major parks.
  • For more information contact Jo Manny with Dirt Dabblers Garden Club at 541-276-7439 or Pendleton Parks and Recreation at 541-276-8100.

Thank you to Pendleton Foundation Trust for their generous gift that allowed for installation of the bulletin boards and brass markers at tree locations.

 

MEMORIAL ROSES

Honor your loved one with a living memorial rose placed in the Memorial Garden. For more information, please contact the Cemetery Office, 541-276-8100. A rose bush, color of your choosing depending on availability, will be placed in the Memorial Garden with a name plaque. You can choose to spread the ashes of your loved one or we can place the ashes with the rose.
