Eternal Rest Funeral Home

How Do You Want to Be Remembered?

Have you given thought about your last moments on earth? What have you considered as a final resting place?

Natural and New..."Burial has been one of the oldest and most common rituals people have for the dead, and yet, cemeteries are something of a new phenomena.

If you have already picked a destination, we can help you with your planning and comforting services for your family and friends." (Prairie Wilderness Cemetery)

Green cemeteries are a new trend in the cemetery world. What defines such a cemetery is that the bodies are not embalmed, are buried in a simple shroud or container made from natural materials, and no burial vault is used.

Military to be Honored

We can put you in contact with the right personnel to assist with consideration and eligibility.

"The rendering of Military Funeral Honors for an eligible veteran, free of charge, is mandated by law. An honor guard detail for the burial of an eligible veteran shall consist of not less than two members of the Armed Forces. One member of the detail shall be a representative of the parent Service of the deceased veteran. The honor detail will, at a minimum, perform a ceremony that includes the folding and presenting of the American flag to the next of kin and the playing of Taps. When available taps will be played by a bugler, however there are so few buglers available that the military services may choose to provide an electronic recording of taps. The veteran's parent Service representative will present the flag."
