Funerals that celebrate life
We see funeral and memorial services as an opportunity to reflect, appreciate and celebrate a lifetime. Envision an exhibition featuring local artists in a one-night-only event held in honor of an art aficionado. Or, imagine a hiker’s final adventure in a ceremony highlighting her most memorable adventures, with monogrammed keepsake compasses to be passed down for generations. Whether you choose a traditional religious ceremony, funeral with military honors or a contemporary celebration that's upbeat in mood, our expert funeral directors at Ankeny Funeral Home and Crematory excel in mastering every final detail.
Let us help you explore the range of options available, so you can create an ideal tribute. Our interfaith chapel warmly welcomes celebrants from all traditions of faith. We also have a flexible reception space that adapts to your needs, whether you invite a reunion of friends or an intimate gathering of immediate family. Leave the catering to us—with family favorites prepared and served by our professional team—so you can spend more time with those who matter most.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.
