In honor of those who passed away in 2019, Stark Memorial has decorated a Christmas tree with ornaments.

Each ornament has the name of one who passed away in 2019 who utilized Stark Memorial’s services.

Stark Memorial will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. Dec. 8 for a family representative to pick up the ornament off the tree. Christmas cookies will be provided.

For those who cannot pick up the ornament on Dec. 8, call the office at 330-332-5139 to make pick up arrangements. After Dec. 16, all remaining ornaments will be mailed to a family member. There is one ornament per family.

“The holidays are often the hardest times for families who have suffered a loss,” said Dan Madden, president of Stark Memorial. “We are just trying to make it a little easier. When you put that Christmas ornament on your tree this year and every year, you will look back lovingly and smile and remember all the good memories.”
