The Cemetery is owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit, and was dedicated in 1928. You can view a map of the cemetery here, but it's a bit deceiving, as the cemetery is quite large, and it would be best to use the office and personel to help locate specific grave sites.
Here are the graves of the Brunner family. Click on each photo for a larger image:

Al and Emma Brunner lie with their daughters Helen and Marjorie, and with Marjorie's husband, John Carlin, on the grounds.
Several Detroit Tigers are buried here as well, including Hall of Famers Charlie Gehringer and Harry Heilman, and owners Walter Briggs and Frank Navin. Tiger shortstop William 'Billy' Rogell of the '35 championship team, and pitchers Dick "The Monster" Radatz and knuckleballer Steve Gromek are also there. So is Mickey Harris of the Red Sox. Hall of Fame Golfer Walter Hagan also is there.
In politics, Congressmen John Dingell and Vincent Brennan are buried there, as is Governor Harry Kelly.
