Our Services...

You may be considering a traditional funeral service for your loved one; and we are here to light your way.

A traditional funeral service contains certain features and ceremonies including placing the deceased into a casket, public visitation and honoring of the deceased (known as a wake), and burial or entombment, accompanied by a memorable funeral service. Burial is arranged in a cemetery plot of your choice. If you prefer entombment for your loved one, Eternal Rest Funeral Home has partnered with Sunrise Memorial Gardens; but you can select any location you prefer. Whether you choose burial or entombment, our service coordinators will be pleased to provide you with full information on options, services, and fees so that you can make an informed decision.

Cremation Services...

If you choose to have your loved one cremated, please bear in mind that the body is still made available for public visitation. Most important, cremation does not extinguish the need for a memorial service; but neither does it depend on one. The choice is entirely yours. Our complete cremation service is just like a traditional funeral service, with the exception that cremation follows services instead of direct burial into the ground.

Once the cremation option has been selected, you will - then - need to choose whether to scatter the cremated remains in a location of value to your loved one, to store the remains in an outdoor niche, or to bury the remains. You, also, have the option of keeping your loved one's cremated remains in an urn as a remembrance.

Urns are used to protect the cremated remains. Eternal Rest Funeral Home has a wide variety of urn materials and styles, including basic plastic or more elegant materials, featuring ceramics, marbles, and even semi-precious metals.

Please call or visit any one of our professional service coordinators for more information on our complete cremation memorial services along with our urn options.

Funeral Services...

Each faith and culture views funerals a bit differently. Here at Eternal Rest Funeral Home, we believe your loved one's service should reflect your family's beliefs. We can offer a traditional funeral and memorial service or a non-traditional service, as well as special ceremonies and rites. A funeral is a resolute way to embody a life lived as well providing consideration of that life's significance on family, friends, and community. No matter what service you choose, we are here to light your way.

Graveside Services...

The Eternal Rest Funeral Home provides meaningful graveside services at the grave in the cemetery, the mausoleum crypt, a cremation niche, or any other preferred location. We can provide a funeral conductor, or you can use a member of your very own clergy. At this not-to-be-forgotten service, a eulogy will be delivered to commemorate your loved one.
