Owner Message

  • We are very proud of our tradition, our facilities, and the services we provide. With over four generations of serving the local service area you can feel confident knowing our company is professional and proud to serve Polk County. Call now to hear the many options we have to offer.

    Below Are Some Of The Many Options We Offer:

    * Traditional Service:

    A Traditional Funeral Service has been the most common type of service in the past. This service consists of a viewing/visitation with the deceased body present prior to a funeral ceremony conducted at the funeral home chapel or a church. Burial or entombment usually follows the service quite often concluded with a reception.

    * Memorial Service:

    A Memorial is similar to a Traditional Service except the body of the deceased is not present for the ceremony. There may or may not be viewing/visitation prior to the memorial ceremony and the body may or may not be present. This depends entirely upon the wishes of the family. The deceased or the family may wish cremation, entombment or donation of the body before or after the visitation and prior to the ceremony of remembrance. This ceremony may take place at the funeral home chapel, church or anther public facility such a lodge hall.

    * Life Celebrations:

    This type of service has come about more recently and is just what the name implies. It is a celebration of the life of the deceased. This has options that are only limited by the imagination of the family. The body of the deceased may or may not be present but most often is not, as this type of service sometimes takes place of both the viewing and funeral service. Usually special music is played; photos of the deceased are displayed depicting his/her life, and memorabilia.
