Directions to Hope Cemetery: from the corner of Highway #11 & #89, drive south on #89 to the 1st set of stop lights, make a left turn here (east) drive to the to end of road, take a right turn (south) here & drive straight to the cemetery. On the right before the cemetery will be the Clinic & the Hospital. The cemetery entrance is marked by 2 brick pillars.
Hope Cemetery was established in 1916 consisting of 5.58+ acres of land acquired from Olaf & Anna M. Holdahl. The Hope Association started with Bendix Holdahl, who is to be related to as the 1st burial was the lead person. The 1st officers would include A.R. Lee, Lloyd Waag & Carl Listug. Forming the grounds committee would be John Buran, Lloyd Waag & Carl Listug. Maintaining of the grounds would come from a $2.00 assessment to all lot owners. Than grass cutting was being done by Eddy Johnston. The cemetery is used for burials.
The Hope Cemetery Association owns the cemetery which is in excellent condition. No church is present at this cemetery. The flag pole was donated by The American Legion. A Display Shelter contains a location listing of all named burials. A Burial Record Book is kept updated by Nancy Andol, who is also the Treasurer. Another Burial Record Book (death Certificates) are held by Paul & Rosella Knockenmus, sextons. All records held by the RCHS have been updated to present time. Previous cemetery readings along with one of the current record keepers held were used to make up this transcription. Donations are most welcome, lots are sold, and perpetual care given help kept the funding of the cemetery. They welcome volunteers to help with up keep.
I did a complete walk thru reading of all visible headstones in a completed transcript as of May 26, 2012. A digital camera has been used for pictures.
