Oaklawn Memorial Park

In 1958, the C.T. Bush family, looking to the future needs & desires of residents of Athens & Henderson County, carefully planned and brought into being the lovely Oaklawn Memorial Park.

The park started with just two gardens, and has now grown to 12 beautiful sections. For over 57 years, the care of the cemetery grounds, and of the families that have entrusted Oaklawn with the memorial care of their loved ones, has been a top priority.

Our caring staff, Brady Autry & Brenda Richardson are here to
serve you and your family.

In 2014, the Bush Family decided to approach the Autry Funeral Home Family on taking stewardship of the cemetery due to their longstanding friendship, knowledge of Perpetual Care Cemeteries and the distinct care that accompanies them.

The Autry Family was pleased to take ownership of the cemetery and maintains the same high level of service and expertise that the Bush family was known for during their three generations of care.

Picturesquely located on the rolling green hills of East Texas, families of the area are offered complete perpetual care cemetery services. Its scenic serenity is enjoyed by everyone that enters the Park.

The Oaklawn office carries a variety of beautiful, multi-colored seasonal flowers on display as well as many colors of roses. Customers visiting the office may make selections from the display, or our staff is happy to select and place the flowers on your loved one's grave.


We only carry the highest quality silk bouquets which are designed for cemetery vases. The "Stay-in-the-Vase" design is a patented flower holder, which eliminates the use of foam. The wind will blow regular flowers out of the vases. When water fills the vase, the bouquets of regular flowers will float out and fall to the ground. You will have peace of mind with the Stay-in-the-Vase flowers from Ruby's Silk Flowers. See some examples below. Please note that the exact bouquet may not be available, but we'll do our best to accomodate requests.
