Northern Peace Funeral Home offers a variety of services.
A traditional service is one where the body of your loved one is present at a service either in a church, funeral home, or another facility.
A memorial service is one where the cremated remains of your loved one can be present at a service either in a church, funeral home, or other facility.
Traditional Service with Cremation: There appears to be a big misconception that families either have to have traditional or cremation, but not both! This is wrong. With a traditional service with cremation, a family can rent and or purchase an inexpensive combustible casket, have a service with the body present. Then instead of going to the cemetery for burial your loved one would go to the crematory.
Whatever you choose—casket and burial or cremation—family and friends need time to grieve and to say good-bye. This is the reason for funeral services—to support the living through the pain and loneliness of loss to acceptance and resolution.
Cremation and burial offer the same services, including music, prayers, and recitations of your choice. You can have viewing and visitation arrangements, with an open or closed casket (or no casket at all) for as long or as short a period as you wish.
Here are a few other services and options for your funeral or memorial service:
Reception for Family and Friends
At the funeral home, at your church, in your home, at another location that is special to the family or to the deceased.
Your local funeral director can assist you with these arrangements.
Memorial or Prayer Service
A service of remembrance (like a funeral), with or without the urn or casket present whenever you choose with whomever you choose.
