About Us | Rest Haven Funeral Home

History & Staff

Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

It's All about the Relationship

It's All about the Relationship

In the early 1970's, Dewayne and Ann Cain saw the need for a perpetual care cemetery in their hometown of Rockwall, and began to develop Rest Haven Memorial Park.  Sparked by their desire to provide families with compassionate, complete funeral and cremation arrangements, the Cain family of companies has grown to include Rest Haven Funeral Homes in Rockwall, Rowlett and Royse City; Northeast Texas Crematory; Pet Memories Cremation Service; and The Flower Box.

We Are Here to Help You

The Cain Family, along with the entire Rest Haven staff, is here to help you.  We truly care about the families we serve and are committed to a level of personalized funeral service that exceeds expectation.  We will walk with you through each decision, listening carefully to help you create a memorial tribute that uniquely honors your loved one.

We Offer You More

Our comprehensive services and attention to detail will allow you to plan every aspect of your arrangements including monument design and pre-planning services.

We are here to help you in any way we can, or answer any questions you might have.  Please call one of our three locations to make an appointment with one of our caring staff.
