The Resthaven information sign is located halfway in the Christus Mall area in the center of the walkway. What a fantastic research tool to locate burials!
Additional Sign Note: Regarding the enhanced 2008 Resthaven Cemetery sign: the "man behind the sign" as he has refered to himself is Mark Jordan, LeMars Engineering CAD Manager. For the updated 2008 sign Mark incorporated suggestions as well as several of his own into the new insert. Also, Art Friedrich, Rock Valley, spent several hours last winter making many small corrections, eliminating the block of lots and spaces in the corners that did not exist, e.t.c. ~Info provided by Frank Postma, LeMars, Iowa
