Westlawn Cemetery Norridge Illinois

It seemed like the main gates were closed every time I drove past Westlawn Cemetery. I really wanted to see this cemetery and I had hoped to fill a photo request for Find A Grave.

This trip was no different – the cemetery gates were closed as usual so, a little disappointed, I went to one of my “regulars” and took headstone pictures in Acacia Park Cemetery.

Way in the back of Acacia Park is a gate. Westlawn is on the other side.

Just between you and me….it was an easy gate to slip through. 🙂

As the Westlawn Cemetery website says, the cemetery is “meticulously maintained”.

I took several rows of headstone photos in this lovely peaceful setting and then remembered I was there to fill a photo request.

On the way to do that, I saw this:

And under the Shady Rest roof there was a plaque.

I’m so glad I ducked under that gate.
