The Spring Coulee Cemetery

Pinepound Reflections
a History of Spring Coulee - page 64
by La Vaun Thompson

The Spring Coulee Cemetery Is located on the South West Quarter of Section 33, Township 4, Range 23, which is a plot of land donated by John C Thompson, to be used as a burial place for deceased residents of the area.

The first one to be buried there was the eleven month old daughter of John C. and Christine Ann MacKenzie Thompson. Mary Christine was a victim of scarlet fever. Since that time, many others have also been interred there.

Through the years, maintenance of the cemetery has been taken care of by individuals caring for their loved ones' graves, as well as those nearby. The Community Club looked after the upkeep of the grounds for several years. As a service project, the young people of the LDS Church spent a day mowing, and cleaning, with very acceptable results.

For the past few years, Arlean and David Hofer have assumed the task of maintaining the cemetery with meticulous care. Their volunteer efforts are gratefully appreciated.
