Fund Drive

Time, traffic, weather, and North Dakota soil have led to road surface deterioration and drainage issues. To ensure the longevity of the cemetery grounds, funds are being raised to complete several projects.

We need your help. Visit the donations page for more information.

Historic Information

Many obituaries are available with our directory at the Leach Public Library for those interred between the years of 1884 and 1983. We can e-mail a copy to you upon your request.


Using funds from your recent donations, we have been able to complete the drainage/ditching project around the Garden of Christus and Prayer. With your help, we would like to continue our upgrades and begin work on the asphalt roads within the Cemetery grounds. Check out our new signage in both the north and south areas of the cemetery.
We have also been removing dead trees and hope to replace some of them with new varieties. The Cemetery Association has received memorials that have enabled us plant 14 new trees. Thanks you families!
