Service Options


A funeral is as unique as the individual we are remembering. What is a typical funeral? It depends on the choices that are made. There are two types of endings for funeral services; burial/entombment and cremation. The rest of the service depends on the options chosen by loved ones. Our staff will discuss the many options available for a family at-need or for someone wishing to plan ahead by making pre-arrangements. Click on the tabs above to learn more about your options.

Traditional Burial

A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a open or closed casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination.  The funeral reception can be held at the funeral home, church or other location.  We will help you with all the details.  It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects. 


Cremation??  The answer is YES! and YES!

Yes, we offer cremation and Yes, we own and operate our crematory.  With the new ownership of a crematory, Douglas Penning and Carrie McGhee have completed the training to become a Certified Crematory Operator (CCO), a designation from the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA).  The NFDA Certified Crematory Operator Program is a voluntary certification program that helps funeral directors better serve the needs of families that desire cremation. Our crematory is only operated by licensed morticians/funeral directors that have completed the CCO training.  If you would like more information to arrange your cremation and memorial service, or even a tour of our crematory, simply contact us at 507-452-3624 and we will help.

The cremation service also has many options. We can provide an immediate cremation without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a open or closed casket; a funeral/memorial service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery.
