Memorials, Honorariums Receive Special Online Recognition

Memorials and honorariums will be listed on special pages on this website as a way to quickly and commendably recognize individuals, families and events.

Memorials honor the memory of a family member, friend, colleague, etc. through the good work of South Milwaukee Human Concerns (SMHC). The donor’s name(s) and those memorialized will be featured on the dedicated Memorials page. Anonymous memorials can also be made.

Honorariums typically recognize a life event such as a birthday, anniversary, retirement or dedication. The honored individual/event along with the person, family or group providing the honorarium will be featured on the dedicated Honorariums page. Anonymous honorariums can also be made.
