Greenwood Hills Cemetery Maintenance Association is a volunteer organization dedicated to maintaining the grounds of Greenwood Hills Cemetery in a manner that respects the dead, honors the living, and preserves a valuable connection with our rich pioneer history.  Through responsible stewardship of resources, we strive to maintain a safe and beautiful open space where people can come to remember the past and enjoy the natural world which we hold in sacred trust for the future.

  • Marker Request Requirements are in effect.  We strongly recommend working with our supplier and installer of markers, River View Cemetery.  River View knows our requirements, they provide exceptional customer service, and they are physically located right next door to GHC.  As well, a portion of the sale is donated back to GHC for continued maintenance.  However, requestors can work with their own supplier of these services.  If you choose your own supplier, markers must be direct-shipped to your supplier; GHC will not accept delivery.  Concrete work and installation of markers must be performed by a licensed Oregon contractor who must provide proof of liability insurance.  GHC may, at its discretion, request an insurance binder.  IMPORTANT:  All marker requests must initially go through our Archivist with NO EXCEPTIONS, as the Archivist must validate the location and mark the site with flags.  Stones must be of granite.  Minimum size is 20"x10"x4" and must be placed in a concrete footing 28"x18"x6" with at least 2" of concrete beneath the marker. If you have any questions, our contact info is listed to the left or you can use our contact form on our Contact Us! page.

  • Our Spring 2015 Newsletter will be published in April 2015.
  • We now accept donations using PayPal from our Contact Us! page.  PayPal is one of the safest forms of online payment methods and if you set up the account using your savings account, it's free.  As well, making credit card donations just got easier.  You can click on the Donate button and make a credit card donation without having to set up a PayPal account at all.  It's easy and convenient.
