Saint Peter Cemetery – Schulte

134 W. Peter Avenue

This sharp cemetery sits on the property of St. Peter the Apostle School and Church.

It looks fairly modern, but there are a number of 100+ year old graves.  There are around 500 people interred here. 

There are no famous people according to but I found at least one that seemed pretty important. 

From the records on Catherine R. Jerrick is the oldest death in the cemetery.  She was born on May 25, 1906 and died six months later on December 6, 1906.

I find Latin phrases kinda cool, because I have no idea what it says, but I like trying to pronounce it. This inscription was on the cross near Bishop Fink and by a time capsule set for a 2055 opening.

In hoc signo vinces is Latin for, “In this sign thou shalt conquer”
