Forest Lawn Memorial Park managers will build a funeral home in the historic Omaha cemetery, a move they hope will help preserve the expansive burial ground and its century-old stone chapel.
Construction could begin in April on what will be only the second funeral home within a cemetery in Omaha, said Gregory Easley, Forest Lawn's general manager. The first is at Westlawn-Hillcrest.
