Pre-Planning

We are a full service facility, offering traditional services, cremation services, pre-paid trust funeral agreements, and a full line of monuments and markers. Pre-planning a funeral may seem a difficult task. However, making funeral arrangements in advance is one of the best things you can do for the ones you love.

You can pre-plan any or all of your funeral services, from selecting merchandise, to the order of service, to gathering information for legal documents. Anything you do ahead of time will make things easier at a time when family members are already stressed.

The following is a list of vital information needed for legal documents following one’s death:

  • Place of Birth (City and State)

  • Highest Level of Education
  • Race/Ancestry
  • Member of the U.S. Armed Forces
  • Usual Occupation/Kind of Business or Industry
  • Marital Status
  • Name of Surviving Spouse (if wife give maiden name)
  • Father’s Full Name/Mother’s Full Maiden Name


The following are some things to think about when planning a funeral:

  • Place of Service/Visitation
  • Clergy officiating
  • Suggested Scripture, Poetry, or Readings
  • Organist, musicians, or vocalist
  • Family member participation in Funeral Service
  • Casket Pallbearers
