Karmin Meade

Karmin is the Director of Cemeteries and available to discuss all of the options Catholic Cemeteries has to offer regarding graves, crypts, niches, cremation garden packages and monuments at any of our 5 Diocesan operated cemeteries in Charleston and Columbia. These cemeteries include: Holy Cross, St. Lawrence and St. Peter Cemeteries in Charleston and St. Peter and St. Patrick Cemeteries in Columbia.

As a Catholic Cemeterien with over 15 years of experience, Karmin understands the importance of providing families with options for their or their loved one’s final resting place. In her opinion a cemetery should be more than a place to lie at rest but also a peaceful, prayer-inspiring space for families to come to when visiting their loved ones.

Karmin is often described as “thoughtful and energetic,” “a great listener,” and “compassionate beyond measure.” When pre-arranging your cemetery wishes with Karmin you are gifting your loved ones with the peace of mind knowing all of the difficult decisions have been taken care of and all of your wishes have been met.

Please give her a call at 843-795-2111 (option 2) and allow her compassion and experience to guide you thru your selection.

Pam Paquette

Pam has been the friendly face welcoming you to Holy Cross Cemetery for the past 12 years. As a life-long resident of James Island, she is dedicated to the individual needs of her families whether it be in making pre-arrangements, arrangements at the time of need, or memorializing yourself or a loved one with a flat marker. Pam has the experience and knowledge, care and compassion, necessary to guide you in this most important decision making process.

“Genuinely compassionate,” “attentive,” “caring,” and “knowledgeable” are the adjectives families have used most often when describing Pam. She believes listening with a caring heart is vital to helping her families make important decisions in an objective way.
