Seeking opportunities to provide area families with cost-effective entombment of departed loved ones, the Colusa Cemetery District Manager, Daniell Frampton, received approval to begin construction of a columbarium niche.
“The cemetery is looking for new ways to honor the memory of departed loved ones – other than traditional burial,” said Frampton, “With cremation becoming a more common trend, the cemetery looked into the idea of a niche.”
The cemetery selected a 60 space, five-tiered hexagons nice that will begin construction in late spring, or early summer – depending on the weather, Frampton commented.
The columbarium niche will be constructed near the main office building.
“This is an excellent option for the community and a wonderful way to honor their loved ones,” said Frampton, “One niche space can hold two book-sized urns and is very cost efficient – saving families hundreds, even thousands, of dollars.”
Frampton commented that this is just one of the many improvements the Colusa Cemetery District has planned and as each project begins announcements will be made.
With limited spaces, Frampton commented that if anyone is interested in purchasing a nice is to contact the Colusa Cemetery District at (530) 458-2650 or visit their office at 1974 Wilson Ave, Colusa.
