Any amount is welcome. However, donors are asked to give at least $50. Larger donations are very much appreciated as maintenance costs have increased over the years.

Families are encouraged to consider designating Westwood as a fitting memorial to honor deceased family members and friends.

In addition, please keep Westwood in mind when making out your will.

All donations, large or small, are needed and will be appreciated.

Improvements continue to be made to Westwood and the new roadway has generated interest and many are purchasing grave sites in the newly accessible areas of the cemetery while the new improved trash containers are another improvement to the grounds.

Currently the back gate is being widened to make it easier for wide loads and long vehicles to drive through.

Other ongoing repairs will be made as funds become available. The trustees deeply appreciate your ongoing support of this beautiful old cemetery and you are urged to mail in your annual donations immediately to the address above.
