Every funeral service should be a memorable, warm reflection of the person who has died. All of our services can be personalized to meet your family's needs or wishes. Every life is unique and we make sure each Memorial Service reflects that.
From the beginning of recorded history, societies have honored those who died with a ceremony. According to beliefs at that time, the purpose of the ritual was to send the deceased on his or her journey into the afterlife.
Today, however, many experts agree that the benefits of a service are for those who are left behind after a death. A "closure" of sorts must occur to help survivors adjust to their loss and recognize that a death has occurred. A funeral service provides the opportunity for friends and family to celebrate the life that was lived and allow the healing process to begin.
We honor all burial policies 100%. In other words, full credit will be given for your burial policy or life insurance policy from any other funeral home and there will be absolutely no reduction of burial policy benefits when applied to services and merchandise at Elmwood Memorial Park.
Funeral costs vary depending on the funeral home and type of service selected. There are two types of costs associated with a funeral: (1) services provided by the funeral home and (2) merchandise such as a casket or urn.
By making arrangements and funding your funeral in advance, you were able to express your own wishes and relieve this emotional and financial burden from your family. Usually, these arrangements can be reestablished with another funeral home and nearly all funding vehicles are transferable by the owner.
