Chapel Hill has dedicated eleven distinct and sacred gardens that have been designed to encourage families to enjoy the beauty of our rolling hills, native trees, flower beds and shrubberies. The serenity of nature brings comfort and peace in a setting to honor and remember our loved ones, inspiring our faith and keeping our focus on life – not death.
A lovely example is the Garden established for those of the Catholic faith in cooperation with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rockford and blessed by Rev. John Daleiden during its dedication in 1968. This special garden is reserved for local parish members and their families. The focal point of the garden is a dramatic10-foot high cross created with faceted colored glass that reflects the beauty of a sunlit day.
The Garden of Our Savior features a life-size statue of Christ that was carved from white Carrera marble and imported from Italy. The statue is set in front of tall evergreen trees, creating a stunning background effect that enhances the beautiful white marble statue.
The Masonic Garden, under the guidance of the Masonic Freeport Consistory, has been created for the exclusive interment of all Masonic members and their families. The garden is the only one of its kind in the area and imitates a lodge meeting room. A large granite altar at the center is flanked by chairs for the Master, Senior Warden and Junior Warden.
You will find a number of grave spaces are still available in all eleven Gardens.. One traditional burial or two cremation burials are allowed per garden grave space. For security and maintenance purposes, Chapel Hill requires a two-piece, steel-reinforced, concrete burial vault for all earth interments. Learn More…
