Crystal Cathedral Burial Plots

Did you know that part of the Crystal Cathedral property in Garden Grove is actually a cemetery and mausoleum?  Yes… 1.5 acres!

A little trivia for you:  Marie Callendar (yes, the frozen food and restaurant gal) is buried there.  So is Thurl Ravenscroft, the voice of Tony the Tiger.

Those who own plots or space there also include Pianist Roger Williams, and the family of TBN owners Paul Crouch.

Prices range from $1400 to $4850 for smaller plots up to a quarter mil for ‘family estates’ that can hold up to 10 caskets.

But with the property up for sale, some people aren’t happy.  (Well, some people are dead, but their family’s aren’t happy).

Like the family of John Crean, an entrepreneur and philanthropist.  Crean’s son is not happy with the planned sale of property and building of apartments on the property:

“My father bought the spaces years ago and his intention was to help out the church,” he said. “But we want him and our family to rest in dignity – not next to a three-story apartment complex.”

The cemetery has 6,000 spaces.  No word on how many of those spaces are actually sold.

And so the saga continues.
