As you attend funeral services for your friends and family
at Dublin Memorial Gardens, you have noticed the
four statues of Jesus positioned
in four gardens around the cemetery.
Dublin Memorial Gardens, originally named the
Sunset Memorial Gardens, was founded by O.L.,
Mildred and J.L. Kleckley in 1956.
The first Christ statue, carved from Italian carrara marble,
was dedicated on Sunday, May 5, 1957. Sculpted by an outstanding, yet unknown,
Italian sculptor, the statue was dedicated by
Rev. John D. Campbell, Jr., Rev. Charles Allen
and Rev. James Callahan.
The first statue, six-feet, six-inches high, was placed
in the Garden of Our Savior by the McNeel Mable Company
of Marietta, Georgia on top of a 12-foot cross of Georgia Marble.
The walkway is made of Tennessee colored stone.
