About Us

Creating memorials has been a family tradition for the Waldner family in the Peace Country since 1958 when Harold Waldner  established Town & Country Memorials.  In 1972, he changed the name to Peace Country Memorials. During this time he provided many years of timeless work in creating memorials for families in our area.

After Harold’s passing in 1987, his son Hal took the helm and continued to successfully grow and operate our business until his untimely passing in 2009.  Peace Country Memorials continues to thrive as a family owned and operated business, celebrating our 42nd Anniversary this year 2014.

We are located in Rycroft, Alberta, just 45 minutes North of Grande Prairie.  We invite you to our showroom, where we will be happy to answer your questions, offer suggestions and assist you in choosing a lasting memorial for your loved one.  Should you find it more convenient, we have other displays throughout the Peace Country, or we could set up an appointment to meet with you at your residence.

Over the past 42 years, our family has worked very hard to create unique and beautiful memorials for Peace Country families. We look forward to helping you choose a memorial for your loved one, and in the process, we will treat you as we would a member of our own family.

Peace Country Memorials started a program in 1998 in which we make a donation to the cemetery for each memorial purchased for that cemetery.  Since 1998, we have donated over  $81,270 to cemeteries in the Peace Country.  The donations come from Peace Country Memorials, and our Memorial Counsellors:  Bergeron Funeral Services, Chapel of Memories, Marie Froese, Oliver's Funeral Home, Reynars Funeral Home, Beaverlodge Funeral Service, and Hamre's Funeral Chapel.

Thanks for considering Peace Country Memorials and trusting us to build a memorial that will immortalize your loved one and will withstand the test of time for generations to come.

“ Thank you so much for all your advice & help in choosing my mother’s monument and please thank your staff for all the work they did in making it for us.  My son emailed us photos of the monument over the weekend and we all agree it is just perfect...my mother would have loved it. Thank you once again.”  Sheila L.

“ I have been at the cemetery and have seen the monument.  I think it is absolutely gorgeous and I am so very pleased with your service.  The design on it has special meaning for me.  It is a scene of a place where Bruce was happiest to be...at a lake, in the mountains and forests, and then with the special touch by your laser imaging department, by adding the canoe on the lake, the highlights and everything else that I requested, I am very grateful.  Thank you very much.”  Mary M.

“ Thank you for the phone call telling us that mom’s monument had been installed at Grande Prairie Cemetery.  I did get over to see it and took some pictures for my sisters.  It is BEAUTIFUL.  Thank you for the lovely job on matching it to my dad’s.  It is so very close, even the color is almost the same and dad’s has been there for 30+ years.  Grande Prairie City Parks employees did a very impressive job on the plot after everything was done and it looks so neat and tidy now with the monument in place.  Thank you again, for the great job done in memory of our mother.”  Maxine H.

"We would like to thank you for the excellent job you all did on the headstone for Dick and Tina.  Thanks you so much for getting it out there before last week-end.  We had a lovely family memorial tribute service on June 16th for Dick.  We appreciate the quality work you did in preparing the stone and the excellent service you all provided."  Sincerely Bob and Karen R.

"I was so pleased that you e-mailed the photo of the headstone.  It was late when I got home from work tonight and it was so good to be able to view the photo..it looks beautiful and has a quality all its own, which I especially love!  Thank You to everyone who took part in making it a reality and for meeting the requested date for installation.  It means a lot to me!"  With much appreciation, Heather.
