Glenn Family Services Memorial Day Event

The Glenn Family Services Memorial Day event, held the Saturday of that holiday weekend at The Field of Honor at Owensboro Memorial Gardens, is a tribute to those no longer with us who have honorably served our country. Featuring ceremony, inspiration, music, and pageantry, it is an experience that allows the honoring of duty and sacrifice.

Tree of Memory

The Tree of Memory is a Glenn Family Services original program extended to our entire community, whether served by us or not. It is a fitting way to make the memories of those no longer with us a positive part of the holiday season. More than 3000 names adorn ornaments decorating two majestic Christmas trees in the foyer of Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Their memories are shared with the entire community on Christmas days as their names are published in the Messenger-Inquirer. Glenn Family Services is pleased to make a contribution in their names to selected local charities.
