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 and at-need services for funeral or cremation (with on-site crematory) and cemetery or niche spaces. Twice a year we offer a safe and confidential Grief Support Group that provides loved ones with tools for coping and allowing room for you to grow while moving at your own pace. Haven of Rest also invites those families that we serve to join us and the local community at our annual Memorial Day, Easter Sunrise Service, and December Luminary events.

We are family-owned, not a member of a corporate establishment. Our licensed on-call staff responds immediately when the loss of your loved one occurs, whether it is at a local home, hospital or care center. Each employee who meets with you to make funeral arrangements, or provide 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 rigidly trained crematory operators are sticklers for detail, especially when it concerns your loved one's care and identity. We always meet or exceed expectations during annual inspections.

Before attending Haven of Rest Grief Support Group, I met once with another widow/widower group and it turned out to be more of a women's social group rather than 'companioning' each other in their grief. Haven embraced both male and female spirits. It has helped me come to the realization that I have a purpose and a need to honor my husband's life by continuing what he set out to do before he took his life.

I have come to understand I will never know the real 'why' the death happened, but through reading our accompanying book and guidelines, I do not dwell on that thought as often. I have discovered that each step through the 'wilderness of grief' has become more soft, less sharp. Retracing them is inevitable; I know the way forward is achievable. One will still feel the thorns, but they become a little less painful and a little farther apart.
