When a loved one dies, family members and friends are suddenly confronted with
all kinds of decisions about the funeral arrangements. Often these decisions
must be made quickly and during a time of grief and loss. What kind of funeral
should be planned? Will the body be buried or cremated? What legal requirements
must be met? Who must be contacted? Will there be a memorial service?

way. It is our job and our privilege to help you during your time of need.

Funeral and Cremation Services
At Evergreen Mortuary, we believe that memorial services are a
celebration of life and are a way for the living to remember and pay tribute to
the life of the deceased. It is our goal to make the memorial service a positive
and uplifting event that will bring peace and comfort to family and friends.
The following descriptions are a simple explanation of some of
the options that we provide but we will work with you and your family to tailor
the service to your needs.
Modern Funeral Services: It
is becoming more and more common for families to choose cremation with a
celebratory memorial service. The service may take place at the graveside or may
be held later. Some families choose to keep the ashes while other may scatter
the ashes at place of their choosing.
Traditional Funeral Services:
This usually includes a viewing or visitation, formal funeral service, use of a
hearse to transport the body to the cemetery, and burial or entombment. This may include embalming and dressing
Direct Burial: The body is
buried shortly after death usually in a simple container; no viewing or
visitation is involved so embalming is not necessary. A memorial service may be
held at the graveside or later.
Direct Cremation: The body
is cremated shortly after death, without embalming. The cremated remains are
place in an urn or container. There is no viewing or visitation although a
memorial service may be planned. The family may keep the remains, have them
buried, placed in a niche in the cemetery or have them scattered.
