PLEASE READ: In two separate occasions, an urn with the cremated remains and a plastic bag with cremated remains, where left in apartments at the Murphysboro High Rise.  The Housing Authority brought us the cremated remains so that we might be able to get the cremated remains back to the rightful families. First Urn of Cremated Remains: The URN with cremated remains is a rectangular urn in shades of green.  Second Portion of Cremated Remains: The plastic bag of cremated remains is a portion of the cremated remains and actually has the name of Natalie Irons, who died  March 7, 1998.  If you know anyone that might have left their loved ones cremated remains, when they moved the Jackson County High Rise in Murphysboro, Illinois, please let the person, who moved know, that our funeral home has either the urn or the portion of cremated remains of their family member. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR RESPONDING TO OUR REQUEST!!
