Riverside    Cemetery    was    established    in    the    early    1800’s    as    a burial    ground    for    the    earliest    settlers    of    Sterling.        Founding Father   Hezekiah   Brink   is   buried   here   as   well   as   many   people important    to    the    growth    and    future    of    Sterling.        Riverside Cemetery    consists    of    90+    acres    and    in    addition,    the    staff maintains   the   grounds   of   Reformed   Mennonite   Cemetery   and Sacred   Heart   Cemetery.      Riverside   Cemetery   was   taken   over   by Sterling   Township   in   1955   by   a   vote   of   the   electorate.      Many people   have   passed   through   these   doors   as   managers,   grounds keepers and laborers.
