Many choices for a cremation services are available to fit each individuals needs. The staff at Stevenson Funeral Home is committed to providing the service you desire.
Traditional Funeral Service with Cremation
Traditional services following with cremation allows for viewing of the loved one at the funeral home chapel or a place of worship. Caskets are specifically designed for the visitation, the funeral service and cremation. Services are arranged and conducted by a licensed and trained funeral director. There is often a rosary or prayer service held the night before a funeral where refreshments are provided following the service. This rosary or prayer service can be delivered by a member of clergy, a family member, or a friend. After the funeral service, cremation takes place, therefore, rather than going to the cemetery the deceased would be taken to the crematory. Once the cremation is complete, the remains are placed in an urn. A public or private service may be arranged for the final placement of the cremated remains of the loved one.
Memorial Service and cremation
During a memorial service no public viewing will take place. The personnel at Stevenson Funeral Home can make a cremation ceremony as memorable as a traditional means of service through our personalization options. We provide a showing of the urn and although a traditional viewing of the deceased is absent, we assist you in capturing the essence of the loved one’s life through photographs, poems, flowers, and other memorabilia. A memorial service is performed at the chapel or the family’s place of worship. The remains are then given to the family for the final disposition. Our funeral staff is here to guide throughout the disposition of the remains.
If no services are desired, the staff at Stevenson Funeral Home will perform the requested service with the utmost professionalism and dignity. The remains are taken directly from the place of death to the crematory, and then given to the family.
