Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration.
This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
Who We Are
Meet our staff. Members of the local community make everything that happens possible.
Together, we make this place amazing.
John Gouch, Sr. (left), bought Gethsemane Cemetery & Memorial Gardens in 2006. His son, John Gouch, Jr. (right), is the general manager of the cemetery that opened in 1975. This family-run business along West Sugar Creek Road is known for an annual Memorial Day commemorations and family-style funeral services, which include a Celebration of Life snack table with their loved one's favorite foods.
