Have you missed it? We sure have. After a schedule of the stroll’s return in October 2021, the current tenuous situation regarding CoVid-19 has necessitated the postponement of our annual acknowledgement of those interred in the local Corona cemetery. Its return is in limbo at this time.

For information and possibly to participate in the future: Contact Kathleen Dever (cemstroll[at]aol.com) – see the different possibilities below.

Donations go to help fund new gate and pillars for cemetery entrance.


Scripts from earlier strolls are listed below (alphabetically by deceased person/people surnames)

The Sunnyslope Cemetery Project
The society has succeeded in properly and completely documenting the graves of Sunnyslope Cemetery in Corona. The beautifully bound book was displayed at Corona Family History Seminar on 6 October 2007. A copy is available for reference in the Corona Public Library in the Heritage Room (upstairs).

Cemetery Strolls

have been conducted at Sunnyslope for a number of years. Presenters have told the stories of those at rest in the cemetery in a first-person format. These have been presented by the Friends of Sunnyslope, which has sponsored the Cemetery Stroll since 2008 (the Corona Historic Preservation Society sponsored the Cemetery Walk in prior years). All stories have been researched by local historians and written in a narrative format for performance. If you have additional information on these Corona residents, please contact Jean Hibben via email, who will forward the correction or addition to the appropriate historian for further communication and/or adjustment. If you have personal information of someone interred in Sunnyslope that you would like to see featured in a future stroll, contact us and we will follow up accordingly. Primary mover and shaker of the stroll: Kathleen Dever; please direct questions to her via email.

The 2019 Stroll was unique in many ways Рit was the first following a two-year hiatus, due to a variety of issues, and it was connected to an event that affected folks of all socio-economic, religious, political leanings, occupations, etc. all around the world.
