Business is alive and well here!

Since 1926, Michigan Memorial Park has provided people throughout southeastern Michigan with a place of beauty and comfort after the death of a loved one. As the state’s largest family owned cemetery, Michigan Memorial Park offers a variety of options for memorializing friends and family members, including ground burial, mausoleum entombment and cremation.

It is still family owned and is currently in the fourth generation management.  Heidi Umin, Vice President of the Park announced, “It is with great pride that our family celebrates our 85thAnniversary. I am sure my great grandfather, Judge William Heston and our grandfather John Heston would be pleased with the changes and our dedication to maintaining the beautiful setting in our Park.”

President Kelly Dwyer stated, “Over the past few years we have added a walking club, self sufficient water pumping lighthouse, (which earned them a Green Leaders designation from The Southern Wayne County Chamber of Commerce), an angel garden, and most recently a bronze butterfly garden.”

Along with a detailed plan for additional landscaping and plantings, the Park continues to expand and add features that are so unique compared to traditional cemetery grounds. “We even have a certified Grief Therapy dog on staff named Zoey, she has helped hundreds of families thru difficult times,” said Dwyer.

MMP recently held an open house in the beautiful Shrine of Remembrance Courtyard for the SWCRC to celebrate their eighty five years in business. For information about Michigan Memorial Park located on Huron River Road in Huron Township visit the web site at
