Skime, Roseau County, Minnesota

Lat: 48° 33' 28"N, Lon: 95° 34' 58"W
Reine Twp, T159N R38W Section 30

Contributed by Marjorie Broten, Jun 07, 2012, last edited Jul 09, 2012 [mjbroten@wiktel.com]. Total records = 139.

The cemetery directions leaving from Roseau drive east on Highway #11 for approx 6 miles, watch for County Road #9 turn right (south). Continue too drive for approx 20 miles, watch for county Road #18 on your left (east) side, turn here drive approx ˝ mile, you will see the cemetery from the road. There is a church near the cemetery.

The established date of 1927 on 3.4 acres of land acquired from Edwin & Ida Aasen & Jewell Aasen, a single person. The church is present by the cemetery. The cemetery plot map was done by El Kak & June Foss, also the caretakers/sexton for the cemetery. The plot map showing grave locations & the book listing of those buried were in excellent condition.

The owners of this cemetery is the Bethesda Lutheran Church, which is very good condition. There is a cemetery sign with a flag pole donated by the American Legion. A cemetery map & record plot listing (both copied & recorded at the RCHS) has been organized by El Kay & June Foss whom are the sextons. Anyone can be buried here, but pays a set amount at time of burial for a grave site. Perpetual care & donations are welcomed.

I did a complete walk thru reading of all visible headstones in a completed transcript as of May 30, 2012. A digital camera has been used for pictures.
