Options are clearly outlined for you—and there’s never any pressure to purchase more than you need. And, of course, you are always welcome to purchase services and merchandise a la carte from our General Price List.

Distinctive funerals and memorials

Our packages are designed to offer an authentic and affordable way to remember a loved one.

Cremation options

Urn outside on table with flowers around itNot everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you’re interested in cremation, we can explain the process and the different memorialization choices, from urns to remembrance jewelry. Whether you’re interested in a simple cremation without a service, or a full-funeral service before or after the cremation, you can select from affordable options to meet your needs.

For families who choose the time-honored tradition, our full-service funeral home uses a crematory dedicated to our family of funeral providers. This allows us to have control of a cremation from start to finish.

Your loved one’s urn can be picked up at the funeral home, or someone from our team can deliver it to your home or send it to you by U.S. mail.

Making arrangements in advance

We know that making funeral or cremation arrangements can be overwhelming. In addition to assisting during your immediate time of need, our funeral directors specialize in working with families to plan final arrangements in advance. By preparing these details ahead of time, you provide peace of mind to your loved ones while outlining your personal wishes. You’ll also lock in today’s costs and avoid future price increases, which can help ease your family’s financial burden during an already stressful time. When you’re ready, we're here to discuss low-cost funerals and cremations, answer questions, and walk you through the advance-planning process.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"I want to encourage others to use your and Allene's services. Losing dad wasn't as easy as I expected. He was the patriarch of the family and was supposed to live forever.  When that didn't happen, it took time to figure things out.  While I was thankful that dad in his wisdom had pre-paid for his own service, I still had questions.  With the help of my daughter and David, we were able to pick all the best options to make dad's service a true Celebration of his life.     I had never heard of a 'Celebrant' before and had no idea what was involved. Allene took the time to get to know us. She understood that we didn't want a religious service and wanted something more tailored to dad's temperament. She took the time to talk to different members of dad's family so when she talked about him, it was like she knew him.  It was so amazing to listen to someone we had just met talk about dad like they had been friends for 30 years or more.   I am so thankful for how David used all of his experience to help my family put on a service dad would have been proud of and had fun attending. "
