Cemetery/Memorial Book

Director of Cemetery, Maria Vrame.

Name: Maria Vrame
Job: Funeral Coordinator and Cemetery Facilitator

Fairmont-Willow Cemetery is a beautiful memorial park in Willow Springs between 95th st., Willow Springs Road and Archer Road, surrounded by forest preserves and only a short ride from St. Luke Parish. It is in this park that St. Luke has purchased grave sites. We are the first Orthodox presence in this locatione where we have had a stately Orthodox cross marking our area and overshadowing our grave sites.

Each year in the spring, Fr. Andrew Harrison chants a Memorial Service on the site for those buried there and blesses each grave. This is comforting to those who have no relative living to know that they their grave will also be blest and not fogotten.

One does not need to be a member of St. Luke to purchase a site in this designated location. This park is also convenient to the other Orthodox churches in this area.

If you, a member of your family or a friend are interested in purchasing a site in this designated area, please feel free to contact me or Fr. Andrew Harrison and we will be happy to serve you.
