Traditional Services

When a person dies, we acknowledge their death by having a funeral, the traditional way to honor and pay respect to a loved one. Once we are contacted, the deceased is taken into our care at our funeral home where they are prepared for viewing. As part of the arrangements we will coordinate the church, cemetery, newspaper notices, and file the death certificate along with any other items needing addressed on your behalf. A visitation may be held in conjunction with any choice of final disposition: earth burial, entombment or cremation. Many people believe viewing is important because it allows us to begin accepting the individual’s death by sharing memories and receiving support from others. Following the visitation, a funeral service at the funeral home or church is held. A procession to the cemetery follows and concludes with a brief service. After the funeral it is customary for the family to invite their guests to join them for a funeral luncheon. The gathering of friends and family at a time of death is an important part of the grieving and healing process.


The following is a list of choices which represent our services. They may or may not include the casket or container required for visitation or viewing, burial, entombment or cremation.

You are in no way limited to these service options. You may itemize services in order to select only those which are right for you.
