History & Staff

Our Story

Learn the legacy

We've learned a lot about caring for families over the years. We realize that we aren't just caring for a loved one, but the entire family. People come to us during their most difficult times, and we respond with kindness, understanding and expertise. Our goal is to make everyone feel at home as we work with them to create a memorable service in honor of a beautiful life.

Our beginnings

Grace Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home was founded in 1970 by Melvin Scherer, a retired U.S. Air Force colonel. As a local resident who attended many services at Hudson Cemetery, Mr. Scherer recognized the need for a new cemetery to serve the growing community.

Splendor for acres

Grace Memorial includes several gardens specific to a faith or organization affiliation within the community such as our Catholic, Jewish, Greek and Masonic Gardens, as well as mausoleum complexes throughout the cemetery.

Dedication, compassion & experience

We have built a reputation for excellence and are committed to creating a unique personalized experience for every individual that will properly honor a life well lived. We promote expression of individuality and encourage protecting your generations to come.

Testimonials

What Families Are Saying

Real Stories from Real People

We just wanted to thank you again for all your help and Professionalism helping us do the inevitable. I must say you actually made something that we would have thought to be extremely difficult, to something that turned out to be very "easy", because of the way you treated us. So again, THANK YOU. Captain Rick & Carmela

Captain Rick & Carmela 5 stars

The loss of my husband came as quite a shock. Having never planned a funeral service before, I wasn't sure of everything that was required. The staff at Grace Memorial was a big help to me and made the planning so easy. I would highly recommend their services.

Brenda Hoch 5 stars

We can not thank Jim McMichael and his staff enough for all the consideration they showed our family. They took such care in the preparation of our Loved one and all of the arrangements that needed taken care of. Very thoughtful over ever detail that there was. We would highly recommend this facility in your time of need.

Robert & Debra Burnett 5 stars

My wife Jackie, and I were both pleased with your service. You took time to explain our various options in helping make our end-of-life arrangements. We fully appreciate your professionalism, your knowledge, and your friendliness. We will gladly recommend Grace Memorial Gardens to our friends and loved ones.

Anthony B. 5 stars

I was very pleased with the services provided by the staff. After my mother's passing, they provided exactly what I wanted at a reasonable cost. Having them handle everything was a blessing and deeply appreciated.

William J. 5 stars

My elderly mother had a prepaid cremation from another state. This caring and helpful group of people not only accepted this, but they helped me with details and follow-ups with VA assist. And always with a gentle and helpful attitude! My experience with Grace Memorial was 5 stars for sure!
