Burial Services and Choices

Burial or Entombment 

All too often families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one. What many families don't know is that a funeral service is an important part of the healing process. Take a moment to reflect on these questions. They may help organize your thoughts and help you plan a more personal, meaningful service.

  • What type of service is the most appropriate? And where will it be held? 
  • Select a Casket – and will it be open or closed for the visitation/service? 
  • Select a Burial Vault 
  • Determine which cemetery will serve as your loved ones’ final resting place 
  • How do want to celebrate/personalize the funeral?


Traditional Funeral Service 

This service includes viewing hours, a gathering of family and friends for a tribute ceremony held at the funeral home or church, the presence of an opened or closed casket, and an order of service followed by burial or cremation. Family members may choose to participate in the personalization of this service. 

Graveside Service 

This is a service of remembrance held at the grave or mausoleum in the cemetery with the presence of the casket. Public or private viewing hours at the funeral home, the day of the service or the day prior with either an open or closed casket are always an option.
