Funerals serve an important purpose: they allow us to recognize a life that was lived and acknowledge that the life has come to an end. Funerals exist for the living, for survivors who suffer the loss of a loved one. We understand that every family is different. Influences such as religious and cultural traditions, cost concerns and personal preferences make each funeral as unique as the person who is being honored.

Basic Elements

There are three basic ingredients in the funeralization process. First, a form of final disposition of the body must be decided upon. Second, the type of service desired must be arranged. Third, the types of merchandise needed to accommodate the service need to be selected.

At Memorial Funeral Home, we encourage families to create very personalized services. It is important to acknowledge that life that has been lived, and to offer to the community a way in which to celebrate that life. By offering services that are very personal and special, a unique life can be remembered and honored in a way that is comforting to the family and friends. 

To The Families We Serve 

When you call on us during your time of need, we will serve you with compassion and dignity. Your expression of specific needs and desires for the funeral service allows us to memorialize the life lived in a personal and meaningful way. 

Coordinating funeral services requires our immediate attention. Please rest assured that we will be here to assist you, even after the service is over.
