2014 Cemetery Ordinance and Map in Photo Gallery
June 7, 2017

The revised Cemetery Ordinance for 2014 has been added to the Photo Gallery in the Village Ordinance album. Sections of interest are the guidelines for monuments, decorations and landscaping, clean up dates and fees for location, opening and disinternment.

A link to the latest cemetery map with names is located on the page. Wait for it to load; it takes awhile.

A complete map of the cemetery with names, lot numbers and maps has been added to the photo gallery. It is on the second page, toward the bottom.

The Map contains pages listing names of those buried in the cemetery, maps of the gravesites and cross references between the two.

You will need Microsoft Excel to open the map.

Any questions, please call the Sexton [phone number on the page.

A new and enlarged map of the cemetery has been mounted on the new free standing kiosk at the gateway to the cemetery.

The donation box is still located by the chapel.

Reporting Stray Dogs and Cats
June 1, 2017
If you wish to report a stray animal, please call the Viola Village Police first [309.596.4111] or e-mail Officer David Perry [].

It is best to start with our local officer as it costs the Village [and you] less to corral the animal than having the County Animal Control do it. Mercer County Animal Control charges a yearly membership fee AND a fee for each animal.

Your Village Board has decided to save the fees by handling the strays locally.

Of course, if this is an emergency and you cannot reach Officer Tom, please dial 911.

Village Cemetery FaceBook Page Available

This is the place to check out the rules and regs for the cemetery and browse the gravesite map [see the album in the photo section].
