The following are the general types of services offered by Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home. The expressed wishes of the deceased as well as their family determine what the best way is to proceed with a funeral service.
Traditional Funeral and Chapel Services
Traditionally, this service includes viewing hours with a gathering of family and friends at the funeral home or church and the presence of an opened or closed casket. Often the services are conducted by a member of the Clergy or the funeral director.
Direct cremation is when cremation occurs shortly after death without embalming. After cremation, the cremated remains may be placed in an urn or other container. No viewing or visitation is involved, although a memorial service may be held at the funeral home or the church with or without the cremated remains. After cremation, final disposition of the cremated remains can be inurnment in a columbarium burial, scattered at sea or land, or kept at home in an urn.
This type of service occurs when the deceased is not present. A memorial service is a time to commemorate the life of your loved one. This ceremony may be held at the funeral home, a church, or if desired a more casual location of your choosing.
A graveside service is when families gather at the grave site where a brief ceremony is held to honor the memory of the deceased.
A direct burial is when burial occurs shortly after death. No viewing or visitation is involved and embalming is not necessary. Services may take place at the burial or at a later time.
