Welcome to John M. Oakey & Son

Jon Wilson, Manager
Since 1866, John M. Oakey & Son has provided caring service to Salem and Roanoke Valley families. We are proud to be an independent, family-owned firm and that our name is one that so many have come to trust over the years. Don't make the mistake of thinking all funeral homes are the same. We pride ourselves on providing caring, personal attention. It's the kind of attention reserved for friends and neighbors. We are Salem’s only locally owned funeral home. 
We want to thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will find our site helpful in your search for information on funerals, preplanning, and grief support. You will also find all of our costs for funerals as well as costs and pictures of merchandise.
It is our purpose to provide adequate information if you are considering making plans in advance of need or if you have experienced the death of someone you love. Please visit our online obituaries where you can view the arrangements and obituary of your loved one.
Also, please visit our online Memorial Guestbook. If you are unable to attend in person, the guestbook gives everyone an opportunity to sign the guest register and to share your sympathies, condolences, and fondest memories with the family of the deceased. All private condolences and replies will be printed out and given to the family. 

We provide our families with an open door policy. Please feel free to contact us 24 hours a day.

Helping You Grieve

Our experience has taught us that when losing a loved one, those left behind feel lost and alone. Many do not know where to turn to or how to cope. Our grief support programs in place are dedicated to helping you during your difficult time and making each day a little easier for you when a loved one is lost.
