Haven Of Rest, the Funeral Home, Crematory and Memorial Park above the bay in Gig Harbor located right beside State Route 16 NW, has been serving families at this location since 1954. Each of our employees considers it a privilege to serve you, the residents of this community. We offer pre-planning for funeral or cremation (with on site crematory) and cemetery or niche spaces. We respond immediately when informed of a loved one's death at a local home, hospital or care center.

We are family-owned, not a member of a corporate establishment. Our own licensed on-call staff responds when the loss of your loved one occurs. Each employee who meets with you to make funeral arrangements, or provides care of your loved one, is licensed/certified by the State of WA. Many years ago we invested in our own on-site crematory. Our crematory operators are rigidly trained and sticklers for detail especially when it concerns your loved one's identity. We always meet or exceed expectations during annual inspections.

We work closely with local community cemeteries in the greater Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula areas, as well as Tahoma National Cemetery. Our experienced office staff can help with obits, VA paperwork, death certificates, and insurance.

What Our Families Say...

When my Dad (Vern Gormanson) was in his late 80's he decided it was time to make sure all his funeral arrangements were in order. He wasn't driving any longer so could not come to Haven of Rest. Irene Schwab said she would go to his home to help him with the arrangements. They went through all the details and everything was arranged. She was very helpful and made sure my Dad understood each detail. When they were done he was very satisfied that his children would have nothing to deal with and everything was in order.

When he passed, the funeral director went to Harrison and picked him up and brought him to Haven, where he was cremated. Everyone was very compassionate and helpful, and all went as my Dad had planned.

Thank you Haven and Irene for all your kindness and compassion for my father. We were very pleased with all your help.
