The Memorial Rose Program is a service the Tamaqua Public Library provides to honor the memory of a friend of family member.  If the request for a rose memorial is made in ample time prior to funeral arrangements, the library can arrange for the rose to be present at the time of services for the decedent.  Otherwise, the rose can be sent to the home of a specified individual providing the address is local.

Donors requesting a rose memorial with the intent on having the rose at the funeral should supply the name of the deceased, the location of the funeral, and the time of the funeral or viewing.  The rose will then be sent to the funeral home along with an acknowledgement card. 

The cost of a rose memorial is $15.
