It has been our privilege to serve you and your family this past year. The holidays are a difficult time for many who have lost a loved one. Wyuka invited family and friends to attend our Tree of Remembrance Service to honor those loved ones and to support those who grieve. During the month of December family members signed an ornament provided by Wyuka in memory of their loved one. The ornaments were hung on our tree until after the service held on December 15, when they were taken home by the families. Many of the 60 plus in attendance had given us pictures of their loved one to honor with a pictorial tribute played during the service. Following the half-hour program held in our chapel, families gathered in the Garden Room for a reception.
Memorial Day Celebration at Wyuka Funeral Home and Cemetery will be Monday, May 27, 2013 beginning at 8:30 A.M.
Wyuka Funeral Home and Cemetery in conjunction with the Hildegard Center for the Arts, Lincoln High School, University of Nebraska-Lincoln and State Historian, Ed Zimmer held a walking tour called “Hearing from Heroes” at Wyuka Cemetery on October 21, 2012. Students from Lincoln High School portrayed ten Lincolnites from the past that are buried at Wyuka Cemetery, people from the past that overcame adversity, poverty and in some instances slavery to become outstanding members and leaders of the Lincoln community.
