Funeral Planning & Costs

Planning and Cost

The first step in making funeral arrangements is gathering information and assessing your needs. This will help in developing a plan that will write the Life Story and create a Celebration of Life Service. The documents below are designed to help you.



When someone dies, there are many tasks that must be accomplished; and along with each task, there is a cost. The process of compiling these costs can be complicated and confusing. To simplify this process, we have assembled several packages. We call them “Smart Packages”.


Smart Packages include services of funeral director and staff, facilities for visitation and service, casket / cremation container, urn / burial vault, and our Life Story complete printing package. Cash advance items are not included in Smart Packages.


Burial Smart Packages range from $10,200 - $13,600
Cremation Smart Packages range from $5,835 - $10,200


If you have questions or find that this is overwhelming, we will be glad to help you through them, either on the telephone or in person.
