Sharon Cemetery


Name of R.M.: Usborne No.: 310
Name of Cemetery: Sharon Cemetery
Name of Community: Guernsey Rural
Name of Denomination: Mennonite (Formerly Northwest Conference)
Condition of Cemetery: Well kept, neat, easy access to headstones
Ownership of Cemetery: Until 2005 was owned by the Sharon Mennonite Church. Evidently now has been transferred to the care of the Philadelphia M.B. Church near Watrous
Approximate number of burials: 168
Legal Land Location: SE 33-24-13 W 2nd
Directions: From the town of Guernsey take highway leading to Alwinsal Potash mine and turn west at the corner before the mine. Travel west two miles and south two miles. Before turning west again, take the gravel road south. The cemetery is next door to what used to be the Sharon Church (Now a private home).
Recorded by: Margaret Ewert
Date: September 4, 2006
Local Contact Person: Donald Bowman
Phone No: (306) 365-4676

Comments: Since the Sharon Church closed its and doors about two years ago the building itself has been sold, a small chapel has been built beside the cemetery – at present not quite finished. Don Bowman has been responsible for looking after much of the church property that needed to be disposed of. He also lives close to the cemetery.
I was impressed with the neatness of the cemetery, the trees around it, and the quality of the headstones.
