A memorial service is held to honor and celebrate the life that the deceased has lived. Your loved one’s memorial service can take many forms as our staff will work together with you to make your vision come to life. The memorial service helps you find closure and support with the people around you. It also allows your feelings to take shape and satisfy your desire to celebrate the life of the one you love. We believe that every memorial service should become a warm reflection of the person who has passed on. This service can be personalized according to your family’s wishes.
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, not touched, but are felt in the heart." - Helen Keller
Our burial services are available for families who choose not to have the funeral service at our facilities or their church. We understand that many families would like to keep their loved one’s service as private and intimate as possible. As such, our staff will work with you and your family to provide your loved one with an intimate burial service. We will also be at the graveside to provide our care and support during the entire service.
Upon your request, we can provide an immediate burial without public visitation, service, or viewing. You can also choose to have the casket open or closed.
Let us assist you in these trying times.
Whether it be lunch or dinner, we can provide catering during your loved one’s memorial service. Our staff is prepared to create any dish that you request for the service. You can count on us to make sure that everything goes smoothly while you focus on celebrating the life of your loved one.

We arrange the necessary transportation for you and your loved ones.
St. Edwards Funeral Home provides our clients with multiple opinions for the hearse that they wish for. We also give the family the opportunity to customize the hearse according to their preferences. In addition to this, we offer transportation services to clients. We assist in taking them to the destination of the funeral, burial, and memorial service. Should it be requested, the option for an escort is also possible. We also provide limo services per the family request from the church to the cemetery and back to the church.
We provide an alternate service for your loved one.
We offer cremation services that serve as an alternative to burial. To make the decision for cremation, we understand that you’ll need to know who is handling the process. That is why we will make sure that you are able to meet and select the staff that will be performing the cremation. Your loved one’s remains will be safely kept in our facility until the cremation is to be performed. Please take note that we will require the family to attend a physical viewing of the cremation to identify their loved ones. The option to view your loved one’s cremation and the processing of the cremated remains are also made available. After the cremation is over, our caring staff will deliver the urn that you chose to you.
St. Edwards Funeral Home believes that it is our duty and responsibility to honor the lives and sacrifices that our veterans have made. We offer a wide range of options for the veteran’s family to chose from in order to appropriately celebrate their loved one’s achievement and pay tribute to the life they led. Our care and professional staff are experienced in planning for veteran services. Depending on which branch the veteran has served, the military may provide a flag, an honor guard, and more. A veteran that has been honorably discharged or has no living family will be given military honors and be buried in a national cemetery. We will be there with you to assist you in every step of the way.
