A lovely funeral home
Pull into our circular driveway and you will see our welcoming traditional-style house. During a funeral, the whole funeral home is yours—we hold only one service at a time.
The comfortable funeral chapel, set with sofas and chairs, holds at least 50 people and there are plenty of open areas for additional guests. A special room of the funeral home allows your family privacy for visitations and more. Should you like a catered reception, we can arrange these options for you with a 3rd-party caterer as well.
The Waring-Sullivan team specializes in personalized funerals. We want to help you celebrate life. Whether you are seeking a direct cremation, a full traditional funeral with a multiple services, or a modern memorial with live music, catering and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of your loved one, we go the extra mile to make it happen—and we do it with a level of care and compassion that's uncommon in this world.
Want a dove release? You got it. Monogrammed notebooks as mementos? Yes. The list is long, and we can accomplish almost anything you can imagine. Our staff will take the time to visit with your family and help plan a unique and personalized celebration.
All people welcome
No matter your faith, nationality or lifestyle, we pledge to treat you and your family with dignity and respect. This is a hallmark of Waring-Sullivan service.
