Saint Mary’s Cemetery – Garden Plain

26023 W 13th St N at 263rd St W. Garden Plain

There are about 500 interred at this Catholic Cemetery located across the street from its namesake church.  

According to, there are no famous people buried here.  But Peter Rau has the oldest gravesite at the cemetery.  He was born on December 4, 1843 and passed away at the age of 40 on September 5. 1884.

This is one of those cemeteries where a large portion of people are from the same family lines.  Jeremy thought it was interesting that not all families were buried together.  Was there a rift in the family, was there no room next to the others?  Good questions.
