Funeral and Memorial Services
All too often, families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly don’t want you to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process.
Creighton Memorial Chapel offers many different services. Our experience has prepared us to help, to reassure, and to understand when a family faces the loss of a loved one. We are here to replace confusion with calm, doubts with certainty, and questions with answers. Here, one finds a quiet gentleness in an atmosphere of dignity, efficiency and trust. We believe your service choice is a personal decision. At Creighton Memorial Chapel we explain the options available, then allow you to make your own decisions.
Create Healing Experiences
In the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be ‘easier’ to just take care of things as simply – and as quickly –as possible. But easier – especially in this circumstance – simply isn’t better. You must set the stage for the future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.
Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation; whether you select a formal funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, the need for acknowledgment of the loss with family and friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one.
We offer families a beautiful setting in which to come together to honor your loved one. But, you may certainly choose to celebrate their life in a more unique setting. No matter where you decide to gather together, such a service will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.
Limited Graveside Service
Designed for those who want a ground burial or interment of either a casket or an urn containing cremated remains with a service only at the cemetery. Itemized options may be selected at the family’s discretion.
The same as a traditional service, except the body is not present for the visitation or the funeral. Often considered by those selecting cremation, but it is not limited to those who prefer cremation. The private family viewing explained above also applies here.
With cremation services, we at Creighton Memorial Chapel believe you should be able to choose the type of service that you find most meaningful. That’s why our list of services includes many options. We have our own cremation facility and take great care with your loved one.
Traditional Ship-out Services
Allows you to select the type of services and merchandise for local arrangements and then the remains are shipped out of town for final services.
Limited Family Viewing with Shipment
Designed for those who want a private family viewing, but no other visitation prior to shipment of the casketed remains. Itemized options are also available to the family.
Direct Ship-out Services
When there will be no local service and the remains will ship to a funeral home out of town.
Direct Ship-in Services
For those who want remains shipped to Creighton Memorial Chapel for final services. Itemized options are available.
Non-Traditional Burial, Entombment or Cremation without visitation. For this type of funeral service, you select the services and merchandise from several itemized options. Private family viewings are available, but may be subject to time limitations. Ask our staff about setting up a private viewing for your family.
You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over
Some say it’s harsh to remind you of this, but we know we must. We want you to honor your loved one in a way that allows you to look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor their life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a truly priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
