Traditional Services


The term "traditional service" is often used to describe funeral services of various types that do not involve cremation. Most people in our area prefer some type of traditional service or disposition.


A service, religious or non-religious in nature, is often held at the funeral home or church. Prior to services, there is usually a visitation period where the family can gather and receive friends. The casket can be opened or closed, depending on the wishes of the deceased and the family. Following the service, there is usually a procession to the cemetery where burial or entombment take place. Another option is a "graveside service". This is a simple burial service held at the cemetery without a visitation period preceding it.


Whatever your preferences may be, our staff is committed to understanding your needs, and then customizing a service to meet those needs. We will help you to create a service which is meaningful and dignified. Keep in mind a "traditional service" does not have to be "traditional".
