Creative funerals, memorials

We begin by listening. Inspire us with the elements that set an individual apart—a life-long hobby, favorite genre of music or collection of artwork—and our talented team of funeral directors will help create a memorial service that best reflects individualism.

Imagine a catered buffet featuring a secret family recipe, or a masquerade affair where everyone wears the favorite color of the person they celebrate. Whatever you envision, Nelsen Funeral Home has the flexible reception space and creative resources to fulfill almost any final wish.

Burial, cremation options

Whether you prefer a traditional religious ceremony or burial with military honors, we stand ready to guide you through the range of burial options available. We offer cremation services with optional interment of remains to those who prefer an alternative. Our chapel adapts to accommodate celebrants of all faiths and traditions, and our team welcomes guests before and after each service.
