Cathi Johnson is a Jefferson Award Winning Volunteer for Elmwood Cemetery. She has spent countless hours raising, repairing and restoring the monuments in the Chapel Hill public lots 2 and 3. Here is some of her work. Cathi has studied the proper method for monument preservation at the Association for Gravestone Studies, and she has worked carefully with the staff of Elmwood Cemetery to come up with a program that most benefits the cemetery's monuments. 

If you are interested in learning the proper techniques for monument restoration and preservation, Cathi will be leading a series of classes beginning in early 2012. For more information on these classes, please send an email to, or call 901-774-3212.
