Stoney Crest Mennonite Cemetery was established c. 1930, by a group of Mennonites living in the area of private land.
In 1976 Mrs. Anne Wiebe, was instrumental in collecting a list of names of people buried in this cemetery. On the 12th of July 1976, Dan Bueckert of Saskatoon, George Krahn of Saskatoon, Jacob Penner of Saskatoon, Ed Lehn Of Sonningdale, and Peter Wiebe of Struan/Sonningdale gathered at the cemetery to clean up the brush and try to identify the graves that were there.
At this time a cemetery plot map was made of the cemetery. A copy was deposited with the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society in Regina.
A memorial has been erected in memory of:
Father Jacob Lehn
Mother Margareta Lehn
Sister Maria Lehn
Mr. Jacob Lehn and his wife Margareta are both buried at Leamington Ontario. Their daughter, Maria is buried in this cemetery.
