Our Staff


Kyle Proctor serves as the General Manager of Haven of Rest, as well as fulfilling Funeral Director responsibilities. Jennifer Esparza, Brienna Smith, and Abbie Coleman work to accomplish the daily tasks required of Funeral Director, Embalmer, and Crematory Operator. On a rotating basis, with the rest of the on-call staff, they respond all-day, every day (and nights, too!) to hospitals, care centers, hospice facilities, and residences all across Pierce, Kitsap and King Counties, and beyond, as necessary. Ron Winter is our Pre-planning specialist with 20 years of experience in cemetery, trust and insurance options. He is here to help families make their choices less stressful by doing it ahead of time. 

Our bookkeeping, administrative, and front desk staff consists of Irene Schwab, Abbie Coleman, Jake Miller, and Brienna Smith . They keep us going in many ways and are skilled at their jobs of financial and record keeping. Martha Bryant manages our Community Outreach, Seasonal Events and Grief Group programming. Be sure to call her with your suggestions. 

Under the direction of Jay Huey our cemetery crew works year-round to keep our grounds and facilities looking great, and to have grave sites ready as needed. Like the proverbial postmen, they do their jobs regardless of the rain, snow, or sun showers of Western Washington.
