Over 100 years ago, Zion Lutheran Church purchased five acres of land on the northern outskirts of Hinsdale, Illinois. Later, the land was incorporated into the village of Oak Brook. This land was purchased for the purpose of creating a cemetery so that departed loved ones and visitors may await the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in a beautiful and serene setting.
The grounds of the cemetery are well maintained by volunteer men and women of the church. The church's MOL's (Men of Leisure), a group of retired or semi-retired men from the church, spend their Thursday mornings during good weather caring for the cemetery.
Procedures for many of the tasks needed to run a cemetery have been written and incorporated into a "Working Manual." These procedures are reviewed annually during the winter months and amended as necessary. This is done so that the congregation can be assured that Zion Lutheran Cemetery will continue to be a place where one may be proud to have the internment of loved ones.
The cemetery is located at 301 West Glendale Avenue, Oak Brook, Illinois, 60523. It can be located on Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/ka5u
