Twice named an All-American City by the National Civic League, Sioux City is a perfect representation of the Great Plains States. It's a cultural hub for the state, playing host to the largest outdoor music festivals in the mid-west, and sits at the head of the Missouri River, adjacent to multiple parks and historic landmarks. Covering 88 acres, Memorial Park Cemetery is known for its Tower of Legends landmark. In addition to traditional ground burials, the cemetery has garden and lawn crypts, cremation niches, and mausoleums. It even has a miniature castle.
Choosing an Iowa cemetery from the list below is an important decision, but it does not have to be a difficult one. If you or your loved one have specific preferences, that can help narrow your choice. Such factors to consider include proximity to family or favorite areas, preferred amenities like a community mausoleum or memorial benches, and whether you find the area appealing and peaceful.
