Cemetery

The St. Mary Cemetery is located at 450 Mower Street in the Village of Pinckney.

HISTORY

Originally, St. Mary parishioners were buried in the Old Dexter Cemetery located at Dexter-Townhall and Quigley Roads. The property for the current cemetery was purchased in January 1881 from Thompson Grimes. The official dedication of the cemetery took place in 1882. After the dedication, numerous remains were disinterred from the Old Dexter Cemetery and relocated to St. Mary’s. While many changes have occurred with regard to the church structure, the cemetery on Mower has been a constant location honoring some of the churches earliest members.

Annually the church hosts a Memorial Day mass at the cemetery honoring all those who have come before us serving God, country, and community.
