The Winnetka Covenant Church Gundersen Memorial Garden and Columbarium:

  • A memorial & final resting place for a family's loved one that is close by and among their church community.
  • A favorable way to handle pre-planning, relieving the surviving family of difficult decisions.
  • An affordable, earth friendly, theologically sound & church based alternative to other burial options.
  • Perpetual care without additional cost.
  • An outdoor extension of church space for other outreach and ministries to its family - past, present and future.
  • A beautiful addition to the church grounds not only as a quiet, secure place for reflection and gratitude but as a sign of the church’s continuing love.
  • The columbarium and gardens were built in 2011. Our ministry was enriched in February 2012 by the exceptional woodworking artistry of Rev. Edmund Train, who made a beautiful mahogany vessel for the presentation of the containers of cremains to be used during memorial services in the sanctuary and garden.
