Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery
The Mill Creek Memorial Park Association is a non-profit 501c 13 corporation controlled by lot owners. The lot owners elect a non-paid Board of Trustees responsible for overseeing the operation of the nonsectarian Forest Lawn Memorial Park cemetery located in Mahoning County in Boardman, Ohio. The goals of the Trustees are to preserve and maintain the beautiful, park-like grounds and buildings and to serve its lot owners.
We are “dedicated to memorializing all that sleep within” as stated in the carved stone on the Market Street entrance “Where the memory of beautiful lives will be kept beautiful – always.” The Forest Lawn Cemetery serves as a permanent and perpetual place to honor lives lived, a focal point and tribute to the individuals and families of Boardman and surrounding communities. The cemetery provides an accepted venue for openly expressing our sadness, feelings, pain and loss. Likewise it is a place to reconcile grief and to begin the transition from life before to the life after death. It serves as a place to record a life lived for future generations and to provide a direct link to ancestry. The Memorial Park setting provides a serene setting of beautiful lawns, tree lined curbed roadways and classical buildings; it's a get-away, a place to honor, to mourn and to remember.
