Testimonials

"This cemetery is a welcoming spot," Mary Shields said in a recent feature in the Austin American Statesman."During the last anniversary of our daughter, Amy's death, Jimmy and I spent three hours there walking the nature trails going to the top of the hill and looking down. You don't see fake flowers; you see the natural beauty." George Mirabella of Georgetown said his wife, Lucille Mirabella, wanted him to change their planned grave sites for Pflugerville to Our Lady of the Rosary in 2006 after she saw the cemetery. "She just liked the natural look. I go there every Sunday after Mass ....I'm glad she's there when the bluebonnets come. The cemetery is the only good thing about losing my wife."

"Our Lady of the Rosary Cemetery is as memorable as any beautiful basilica."
