Resthaven Memorial Park

Special landscaping feature at Resthaven Memorial ParkWhether you choose a traditional religious service with conventional in-ground burial, above-ground entombment or cremation with interment of cremated remains, we consider it a privilege to guide you through your options. Resthaven Memorial Park offers family estates, which provide future generations the reassurance of a single central gathering place to reflect on memories. Gorgeous in granite, our mausoleum joins cremation gardens and niches to accent the Shawnee cemetery nicknamed Cemetery Beautiful.

We salute those who served our great nation. Our reserved Veterans’ Garden, replete with a granite veterans’ memorial, is the site of an annual Memorial Day remembrance ceremony to echo tributes at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

History

Neill E. and Mary E. Wiley opened Resthaven Funeral Home in Shawnee, Oklahoma, in 1979 to complement Resthaven Memorial Park, which first opened in 1929. Resthaven became Shawnee's only cemetery with a funeral home on the grounds, run by active community members devoted to countless hours of local improvement.

The Wileys raised their family in the house next door to the funeral home, leaving handprints in the surrounding sidewalks and driveways visible to this day. In 2001, the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce honored the legacy of the Wileys by establishing the annual "Neill and Mary Wiley Award," which recognizes an outstanding volunteer in the community.

In 2006, Resthaven Funeral Home merged with Gaskill-Owens Funeral Home. Many pieces of Gaskill-Owens' antique furniture, paintings and other memorabilia were placed on display in our remodeled family gathering room. Gaskill-Owens' ledger books, dating back to the 1920s, are among the most interesting artifacts.

Today, Resthaven Funeral Home and Resthaven Memorial Park combine the charm and rich heritage of a small-town funeral home and cemetery with the benefits of a trusted network of funeral, cremation and memorialization services through the Dignity Memorial® network. Neill and Mary Wiley began Resthaven with a commitment to a high standard of service, and throughout our history, we've continued to lead and innovate while maintaining that same high standard for our neighbors.
