The Death of Alexis Dillon

On December 12, 2020 our treasurer, Alexis Dillon passed away. Alexis had worked for years, on her own, to protect the Gold Hill cemeteries. In 1999 she joined the Comstock Cemetery Foundation as secretary, later as treasurer. Her dedication and passion will be missed by many, especially by the executive director. She was a dear friend.

Donations in her memory can be made by selecting the donation button on our website or mailing a check to: CCF, P.O. Box 1172, Virginia City, Nevada 89440. Money donated in her name will be applied to Gold Hill cemeteries.

The Comstock Cemetery Foundation is a 501c3 located in Virginia City, Nevada. Established in 1999, our goal is to restore the gardens of the past by preserving the historic cemeteries located on the Comstock within the Virginia City National Landmark. We support Silver City, Gold Hill, and Virginia City’s historic cemeteries. We are guided by a professional advisory board and an extensive master plan.
