A new cemetery is opening at 200 South Veterans Drive in Pekin – Prairie Haven Cemetery, LLC – and is now available for traditional burials. Situated on several acres, Prairie Haven will accommodate both traditional and cremation burials. A dedicated cremation area will be available beginning in the summer of 2012.
Prairie Haven features a “Garden of Promise” for flat granite or bronze markers, along with a “Garden of Peace” that will accommodate upright granite markers. Located on Pekin’s east side, the cemetery also has ample acreage to expand as the need arises.
Full Spectrum of Funeral, Cremation & Cemetery Services
“This cemetery is the result of a longstanding vision,” D. Neale Hanley, Sr., owner and founder of Prairie Haven Cemetery, LLC, said. “It’s always been my dream to offer the full spectrum of funeral, cremation and cemetery services to the families in this community.” Hanley added that the new cemetery is a division of Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory.
Prairie Haven is available for use by any family, whether or not they select Preston-Hanley for funeral services; however, Preston-Hanley clients will consider this new cemetery an added benefit. “For them, it’s important to know that their loved ones will never have to leave our professional care – from the initial service to the final graveside and burial,” Hanley said.
Lot owners will also be assured that Prairie Haven Cemetery will receive the same attention to detail as Preston-Hanley’s Pekin and Creve Coeur Chapels. “Our clients can trust that their loved ones’ final resting place will be cared for with the same commitment to excellence and integrity that they have come to expect with funeral or cremation arrangements at Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory,” Hanley added.
Appointments for lot information are available by calling Prairie Haven at 346-2566.
