Funeral Options

Woman Standing Beside the Funeral of Her Loved One

We can tailor your funeral service precisely to your family’s faith, culture, and preferences. Whether you choose a religious church service or a more secular theme, your loved one’s farewell will be memorable, sincere, and unique. More than anything, we want to help you tell your loved one’s story.

One of the ways we do that is by making sure their tribute is meaningful and unique with personalization options like engraved grave markers, beautiful urns, or even a dove, balloon, or butterfly release after the service, which can be very meaningful. Special music can also enrich any service, so feel free to inquire.

The loss of a loved one can be an incredibly painful time for family and friends, and we know the last thing you want to deal with during that grief are the logistics of a funeral. Here at Leavitt’s Mortuary, our experienced staff will help guide you through every option available to you, making your choices simple and the process as painless as possible. We have been in business since 1929, proudly and respectfully serving our community. You can trust us to have the sympathy and the knowledge you can count on in your moments of sadness. Below are some of the most common funeral options we offer to our clients.

Traditional Funeral Services

A traditional funeral service is composed of a few main parts that all come together to honor someone who has passed and give family and friends a chance to gather and pay their respects. Here are the main stages of a traditional funeral service that you can expect when you work with the experts here at Leavitt’s. 

•Visitation: Commonly referred to as a wake, this is an opportunity for guests to come and pay their respects to the deceased. These are traditionally held with the casket in the room, but the casket being open, closed, or even present at all is entirely up to you. You can schedule your visitation for any time before the funeral.

•Funeral Service: The funeral service itself is very flexible. It can occur on our premises, at a church, or at the final resting place. This can include any kind of personalized moments you would like, such as readings from a religious text, playing music, or the singing of hymns.

•Committal Service: For any service that includes burying the deceased, this part of the process involves the vehicle procession to the cemetery.

•Funeral Reception: After the funeral, most people choose to have a gathering at a local reception hall or restaurant. This is a chance for loved ones to gather, share stories, and celebrate the life of the one they lost.

No matter what your faith, culture, or personal preferences, we can customize your funeral options to your wishes. From the casket to the flower arrangement, the location to the music, we can create unique solutions to ensure that your loved one’s sendoff is exactly as they would have wanted. Please feel free to contact us with any unique questions and we will do our best to make sure they are carried out.

Cremation is an option that more and more people are taking advantage of. While traditional burials are still the most popular, cremation is becoming more mainstream due to its cost, simplicity, and environmental-friendliness.
