From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service and catered reception, we help you understand this increasingly common choice and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

For families who choose cremation, we can also discuss keepsake options such as urns or cremation remembrance jewelry that can be personalized to reflect your loved one’s personality or interests.

Planning ahead

Peters Funeral Home specializes in working with families to plan final arrangements in advance. We recognize that funeral arrangements and associated expenses can be overwhelming, and by preparing these details ahead of time, you provide a sense of relief and comfort to your loved ones while ensuring your wishes are met. We are here to discuss your funeral, cremation and cemetery options should you wish to do so in advance.

Veterans & public servants programs

At A.H. Peters Funeral Home, we also specialize in serving the veteran community. It is our privilege to honor deceased veterans and their families in need of funeral services. This is part of the Dignity Memorial® Homeless Veterans Burial Program, a cooperative effort with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, local medical examiners, coroners, veterans’ advocates and veterans’ organizations. Through the Homeless Veterans Burial Program, homeless and indigent veterans who have no family to claim them are identified and provided with a proper military burial.

We also participate in the Dignity Memorial® Public Servants Program that recognizes the courage and selflessness of those who serve. This program offers dignified and honorable tributes, at no cost, for career and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel who fall in the line of duty.
