Sunnydale Park Cemetery – Sunnydale

10365 N. Hydraulic Avenue

The fall day took us out to visit a few cemeteries.  We had planned to visit five sites that day, but it was just too cold.

It did make for some nice pictures.  Multi-colored leaves and partially bare trees make for some good fall pictures.

There were no famous graves listed at this small cemetery in northeast Sedgwick County, but 670 some people are interred here. 

So many of the oldest graves belong to children.  I guess children are buried first and then family graves are added around it?  Probably a good question for some of the amazing folks at the “Friends of the Wichita Pioneers (at Highland Cemetery) on facebook.
The oldest grave belongs to Helen Annettie Pease April 24, 1869 to April 25, 1872.  Helen was the only child of W.H. Pease and Mary Clarinda Wilcox.  Clarinda married twice, she is buried at Sunnydale  I could not find any information on Mr. Pease.

There was one grave that really caught our eye. The metal art piece certainly popped against the browning grass and blue cloud filled sky.
