Service Options

Planning a funeral service can be a very difficult process for families who have just lost a loved one. But it’s important to provide those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye, and come to terms with the loss. Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to connect, share memories, offer words of sympathy, and create a lasting network of comfort and support as they start the journey toward healing.

Burial Services

There are different services that you can choose for a loved one’s burial, depending upon your individual needs and preferences:

  • Immediate burial means that your loved one will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering.
  • Visitation, also called a viewing, wake, or calling hours, allows family and friends to gather in a room with the departed loved one in an open or closed casket and say goodbye or offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved.
  • Funeral or memorial services can take place at a funeral home, in a church, or even at your home. The service is a ceremony which serves to celebrate, honor, and remember the life of the deceased. Whether traditional or unique, both the visitation and the funeral service can be personalized to reflect the individuality of your loved one.
  • Graveside, chapel, or committal services are held at the cemetery, and allow family and friends to be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final disposition through ground burial.
  • We would be glad to assist with green burials.



Cremation Services with Onsite Crematory

The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can't be a funeral service or visitation. This is absolutely not the case, and we encourage you to consider holding a memorial service to celebrate the life of the deceased as well. There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one's life. After the cremation and memorial services, there are a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition:

  • Interment means that you'll bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in a family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. Ask our staff for a detailed list of interment possibilities.
  • Graveside services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.
  • Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You also can choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for interment or another form of disposition.
  • Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one's final resting place in a nearby location.





Pre-Need

Many people are now looking ahead and planning their own funerals. We can assist you with your personalized written wishes including the place of funeral, pall bearers, songs to be sung, etc. Individuals sometimes may chose to have a monument or marker placed at the cemetery before death. You can even come in and select vaults and caskets. In addition to that, you have the option of funding for your funeral in advance as well. We have many people doing both and it is totally at your discretion which way to go. We offer both insurance funded and trust funded pre-need funeral contracts if you choose to fund your funeral. We can help decide what would be best for you and your family if you have existing insurance policies. Even if you don't choose to fund your funeral in advance, we keep a record of your wishes. All of our funeral directors are licensed pre-need counselors and will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Please contact us using our Contact Us email submittal form.



At Need

During your time of need, employees of our funeral home are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. We strive to provide the best service for each family. We offer traditional and nontraditional, denominational and non-denominational services. A traditional funeral service refers to a service that usually involves a viewing, visitation, funeral service and interment to follow at a cemetery. Disinterment/reinterment, arrangements for transportation into and out of the state or country, installation, cleaning, obtaining death date information and repair of monuments and markers are some of the non-traditional services we offer. We also provide a wide range of services if your family chooses cremation. Your family may want to have a complete funeral, viewing and visitation or memorial service at our funeral home or another location before or after the cremation process. Our facility is convenient, handicap accessible, and easy to locate. Our chapel will accommodate over 175 people with overflow into the lobby. Our service does not end after the funeral. We will assist your family with whatever concerns you may have. Please see our Links page for helpful information.
