Friends Cemetery is a ministry of College Avenue Friends, and maintained by volunteers from the church membership. It is a perpetual care cemetery, which means as plots are sold the money is solely invested in maintaining the cemetery. All labor is donated and anyone can donate time to help with maintenance. It is a nice location on the east side of WPU's Penn Activity Center and Mahaska Technology Center, south of the Women's softball diamond. Plots are 400 dollars and can be used for one casket or multiple cremations. There are plenty of plots available as the cemetery is only 35-45% filled. For more information about purchasing a plot or taking a tour please contact Donna Steddom at 673-7616. For maintenance or grounds related questions please call Chuck Watson at 673-3755.
