Saint Mary Cemetery
Lombard, DuPage County, Illinois

Lat: 41° 50' 32"N, Lon: 88° 01' 32"W

Submitted by Nancy Ristau, Apr 01, 2005 [ristaun@aol.com]. Total records = 129.

Cemetery is found in DuPage County, on the East side of Finley Road, between Roosevelt Rd. (Rt. 38) and Butterfield Rd. (Rt. 56), .15 miles south of 22nd St.

There is no parking lot, and a space for perhaps two cars in the single-lane drive, the entrance of which is surrounded by tall concrete embankments. The cemetery is a Catholic cemetery under the control of the Joliet (IL) Archdiocese. Cemetery was made smaller and graves moved when Finley Road was widened. The cemetery has been vandalized a number of times with stones broken and toppled.

Row 1 #1 is in the northwestern most corner of the cemetery with the rows running north-south.

A portion of this cemetery has gravestones inscribed in Polish. Some letters in this transcription are not as seen on the stone as I was unable to find a font to reproduce all letters that exist in the Polish language. My apologies to any members of the families or the Polish community for the inaccuracies that are included because of this lacking. A deep and abiding gratitude to Jan Borowski of Lombard, IL, and Olga Zelek of Glen Ellyn, IL, for their help in translation. I make no guarantees regarding the translations made and I was unable to get all phrases translated.

Photographs are available for all stones in this cemetery and I would be happy to e-mail any photos people might request.
