Verdugo Hills Cemetery 5/3/09


We Made a Dent in the Pioneer Cemetery Clean-Up

Also known as the Hills of Peace. This local historic gem has a “view to die for” as Mary Lou Pozzo likes to say! A bunch of us locals spent many hours this weekend helping to clear weeds and clean up around the property. The weather was perfect! The great thing about working in this cemetery was being surrounded by so much history. Mary Lou is a walking, talking, repository of local history and she would break up the work by launching into story after story. We are going to try to get her to speak at an upcoming STA meeting! Stay tuned for more info on that.entrance-sign

There’s More Work To Be Done

Mary Lou has been the caretaker for many years, practically all by herself.  Those of us who participated, somehow convinced Mary Lou to let us help out a little more.  So, if you’ve been looking for something to do, or even just wondering about the graveyard, here’s your chance.

Monthly Cemetery Clean-up & Maintenance

Starting with June 6th .

Volunteering and being part of the community has many rewards; an improved neighborhood is only one benefit. It feels good to help out and make new friends at the same time.  We’ll see you there next month!

    Mary Lou and I would like to thank all the people who joined us this weekend to clean-up the cemetery. Everyone’s little part contributed to a whopping 57 bags of stuff which was picked up by the City on Monday, May 4, 2009. A big THANK YOU!

  2. Wow!! What a big improvement. I remember playing in there when I was little. By the way, if there is room up there…I have a tree that may need a home someday. I am trying to keep it alive in a pot for as long as I can, but someday it will out grow it. It is a Giant Sequia tree and would look great up there. Not only looking great, it is our state tree. The size that it is now, it is very expensive and won’t be a monster tree for more then a 1,000 years.

    My name is Roy Hudson and I’ve been doing some family history on my Hudson Line. I found a Hudson is buried at Verduga Hills Cemetery. Birth and death dates are the same my grandfather brother Karney Abner Hudson. Karney was born in Ok. and raised a family in Tx. All of his brother settled in the LA area. So it is possible that he settled near by. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank You:
    Roy Hudson
