November 2022 Update
As the season of Thanksgiving approaches, we hope you’ll receive Fairlawn’s end-of-year letter with awareness of the deep gratitude we have for your support, concern, and care for our beloved cemetery, Stillwater’s historic landmark of peace and beauty since at least 1886.
If you’ve visited Fairlawn lately, you are aware that it has never looked better, thanks to Sexton Mike and his crew and Landscaping Chair Bonnie Petty and her crew. You also may have seen our new Columbarium Plaza which is one of the most beautiful in Oklahoma. This is your invitation to come to see the happenings at Fairlawn!
