The first burial in the Catholic Cemetery, located at 40th and “O” Streets was Michael Shea in December 1869. In the beginning, the cemetery was part of St. Theresa’s parish. In 1930, it was deeded to the Calvary Cemetery Association, which were supported by Catholic parishes across the Diocese of Lincoln. In 1941, Bishop Louis B. Kucera founded the Diocesan Department of Catholic Cemeteries, which was the first such department in the country. Until 1941, one of the local mortuaries administered the cemetery. Since then, an appointed priest has always served as director of Calvary Catholic Cemetery & Mausoleum in cooperation with parishes and mortuaries in the city of Lincoln.
