Cindy Lynds Handren stood by watching and reminiscing with her father, Stewart Lynds, about the days.
"I have mixed emotions," Lynds Handren said. "It's sad to see it go, but it needed to. It was a hazard."
Lynds Handren said her grandmother, Prudence Lynds, was a member of the church and assisted in getting the cemetery active.
"I remember sitting on the pews and kicking my feet on the back of the pew in front of me and my grandmother swatting my knee to get me to stop," she said.
The church was founded in 1865, with the Aenon Chapel Meeting House built about 10 years prior. The cemetery was incorporated in April 1954, however many of the monuments date back to 1862.
