Sheldon Grosberg, the founding Executive Director of the Garden of Remembrance for twenty years, passed away on September 1, 2019. Sheldon was a gift to the Washington Jewish community, extending his vision and leadership as he served on the boards of many charitable organizations. He was a supporter of social justice and a bridge-builder, always finding (and sometimes creating) common ground. And he was a warm friend, extending kindness to all. Sheldon was frequently described as a “mensch of all mensches”. Read the Washington Jewish Week’s special tribute here.

“In the rustling of the leaves and
in the beauty of autumn, we remember them.”
(Excerpt – Kamens &  Riemer)

Each season has its own uniqueness at the Garden of Remembrance. Fall at the Garden of Remembrance Memorial Park, in Clarksburg, Maryland, is a time  of breathtaking views, as hundreds of trees change color, and views of distant hills show their vibrancy. We welcome all to experience the serenity of our quiet countryside setting. Visit and take in the beauty of the present while you honor the memory of the past. Stroll along paved walkways lined with maturing trees. Stop and rest for a moment at a comfortable bench near a garden bed. Come visit, and experience the serenity of our quiet countryside setting.

Here, you can plant the seeds of a new tradition, and give your family a place to remember loved ones for generations to come.

As a full service partner to you and your family, we offer a wide selection of upright granite memorials, and granite or bronze foot markers, with the largest selection in the Washington DC area.
