I enjoy the monthly WELCA circle meetings (Women of the Evangelical Church in America). It is where I have developed new friendships” – Julie

  3. Is Tony still with the Church? I met him in early 2015. I forgot his last name. Shelton? On Wednesdays, he handed out Community Harvest Food Vouchers.A large, heavy set man. GOOD MAN INDEED!

  4. Hi Larry, yes Tony Shelton is still the care minister here at St John and still doing things on Wednesday nights! I will pass along your wonderful comments!

  5. I, Paul N. Gerlach, have a couple questions. I am in good health now, just planning. My parents are Emil A. and Hope M Gerlach are buried in family section 25. I am now 80 and am considering, I plan to be cremated and to have my ashes sent to the Cemetery. Do you allow the ashes to be put in one of their plots with a bronze plate placed on site? I believe Hope took the last plot in 1960. If so,what would the cost be, and who would I contact about the plaque?

    Thanks in advance.

  6. Hi Paul, we are looking into where your parents are to be able to answer your questions. I can tell you that we charge $400 for burial of urns. You would need to talk to someone possibly at Birkmeier Monuments here in Fort Wayne or a place similar that would be able to help you with a plaque as we do not deal with anything but the actual burial, it is up to family to do stones or plaques. Thanks for your inquiry and we will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

  7. Hi Mr. Gerlach,

    Yes we would allow your ashes to be placed in one of the plots. The cost for opening and closing for a cremation is $400. The brass plate would need to be ordered from a vendor and may be attached to the existing headstone.

    Please call me with any questions.
