It is one of the Quad Cities oldest and most beautiful cemeteries, boasting century-old Oaks, gently rolling hills and knolls, and a beautiful reflecting pond near the cemetery entrance.
Considered a rural or garden cemetery, Oakdale Memorial Gardens, Inc. has graves dating back to the Victorian Era. Our most noted "resident" is the legendary jazz artist Leon Bismarck "Bix" Beiderbecke. The renowned cornet player's grave site receives thousands of visitors each year, bringing international recognition to the Quad Cities and Oakdale Memorial Gardens, Inc.
