Funeral Services

Gathering together with friends and family to honor a life and share in loss has always brought comfort and healing. The way funerals look may have changed since we first opened in 1862, but the needs of grieving families do not. Planning a funeral comes with many decisions to make, and we are here to guide you every step of the way and remove as much stress as possible.



A funeral or memorial service should not only honor your loved one in a personal and meaningful way, but should meet the emotional and financial needs of the family too. Whether you’re planning a traditional funeral service or a unique celebration of life, we will help you create a goodbye that brings you peace of mind.

Traditional Funeral

A traditional funeral service usually includes a viewing or visitation along with a  formal funeral service at a place of worship, chapel, or graveside. Families have the option of a hearse and limousine for transportation to the funeral site and cemetery. A traditional funeral can accompany burial, entombment, or cremation.

Memorial Service

A memorial service most often takes place soon after a loved one has been buried or cremated, and tend to be less formally structured than a traditional funeral. Families may choose to hold a memorial service at any type of location they choose, including event spaces, parks or other outdoor areas, places of worship, or a residence of space permits. Memorial services are easily customizable, and a funeral director will be able to offer some ideas for personalization.

Celebration of Life

Like memorial services, celebrations of life are customizable to fit the unique personalities and passions of the lives they honor, but are usually secular in nature and emphasize the joy that a person brought to the lives of those in attendance. Celebrations of life can incorporate both traditional and non-traditional customs, and often the participation of guests is encouraged.

Our funeral directors are available day and night to answer any questions you have. If you are in immediate need, please call us at the funeral home location nearest you.
