Once you fill in our Obituary Form online, we will post it on our website. We will also format and submit the obituary to your newspaper(s) of choice. This price is in addition to the newspaper's fee, which varies depending on their rates and the size of the obituary.
If you choose the Simple Cremation package, families may set up a time to view their loved one for one hour at the funeral home chapel, during business hours (Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM). Up to 10 family members can attend the identification viewing. The trayview cremation container is recommended for this option.
