Colby cemetery to install columbarium for ashes

A graphic provided to the Colby Memorial Cemetery Association shows what the new columbarium will look like once it is installed later this year.

As an alternative to traditional burial plots, the Colby Memorial Association has purchased a new structure called a columbarium that can hold up to 120 sets of cremated remains.
The association approved the purchase in January, from a company called Coldspring of Cold Spring, Minn. providing the low bid of $25,143.
Association president Larry Oehmichen said one payment of $8,300 has already been made, and Coldspring expects a second one before the structure is built. The third and final payment will be made when the columbarium is delivered in July or August.
