Planning a funeral service is not something people do everyday. There are many decisions that need to be made and many options available to every family. We will assist families in every way possible, so they will make an informed decision, and create a meaningful and personalized funeral service for their loved one. Below you will find some of the funeral services provided by our funeral home.
TRADITIONAL FUNERAL This is the type of service best know to the general public. There would be a visitation or wake at the funeral home either the day before or the morning of the funeral ceremony. The funeral ceremony itself can be in a church or in the funeral home. A committal/burial would follow at a cemetery.
TRADITIONAL FUNERAL WITH CREMATION It is almost identical to the traditional service listed above, but following the funeral ceremony cremation would take place. The family would then decide the final disposition of the cremated remains.
SIMPLE CREMATION This is also known as direct cremation. There would be no visitation prior to the cremation. Families could choose some type of gathering following the cremation
GRAVESIDE SERVICE This would be a committal service at a cemetery for full burial with a casket, or cremated remains with an urn. All services for this option would take place at the cemetery.
MEMORIAL SERVICE This would be a funeral ceremony either at the funeral home or at a church without the deceased present.
A Green or Natural Burial conserves natural resources, preserves the environment and still allows families to choose whatever service they desire. Public viewing is an option because of the use of environmentally friendly embalming fluids, as well as, church services, home vigils and direct burials.

This represents a sampling of choices available to families. Services can be combined, personalized, or newly created to meet each family's wishes.
