Draper's Valley Presbyterian Church Cemetery


The Draper’s Valley Presbyterian Church Cemetery was established to serve the congregation
of Draper’s Valley Presbyterian Church. Mary Sue Wood Painter was the first person interred in
the cemetery and is believed to be a victim of the 1918 flu epidemic. Members of the
congregation that died prior to the establishment of the DVPC Cemetery were buried in local
family cemeteries and some of these remains were moved to the DVPC Cemetery at a later
date. The cemetery continues to serve the needs of the DVPC congregation.
A cemetery committee of four church members oversees the day to day operations of the
cemetery with oversight by the deacons and elders of Draper’s Valley Presbyterian Church.
The cemetery finances are maintained separately from the church which means the cemetery
depends on donations and the sale of burial rights for the operation and maintenance of the
cemetery and grounds. Donations are greatly appreciated and may be made to the Draper
Valley Presbyterian Church Cemetery Fund. In addition to the management of finances, the
cemetery committee maintains the records of burial. In order to keep the books up to date,
families with interests in the cemetery plots are asked to send current contact information to the
