On March 5th and 6th of 1966, Oakey’s celebrated its 100th anniversary by opening our North Chapel located at 6732 Peters Creek Road. During that two day open house, about 1,500 people toured the building, with twenty-five staff members on continuous duty to serve as guides and hosts for visitors. The site includes a parking area for 250 cars in the rear, with space for additional 35 cars located on both the sides and the front of the building. The chapel and family room provide seating for 250, while the casket selection room displays 20 units.
Oakey’s always keeps an eye on how to best serve Roanoke Valley families. With a rise in families selecting cremation, we opened a crematory at our North Chapel in 1997. Today, with the ever expanding demand for cremation, Oakey’s opened the valley’s first Cremation Tribute Center. Located at our South Chapel, the Cremation Tribute Center elevates the cremation experience and lets you be a part of your loved ones’ final journey.
