Garden of Memories
In the summer of 2012, we created a Garden of Memories at the Chapel of Transfiguration for those who would like to repose their cremains on the grounds of this unique sacred place. Facing the Grand Teton and framed by aspen trees, the Garden of Memories will forever honor those who love this place.
Instead of being spread, ashes will be poured into the ground and covered with soil. The names and dates of the deceased will be inscribed on a plaque mounted on a large stone in the Garden. For more, visit the Garden of Memories page.
