Heikkila-Carver Funeral Home is a full service funeral establishment. We are able to meet all your requests. We encourage you to express your expectations and preferences; we promise to listen and do everything we can to meet and exceed those expectations. No request is too large or too small.
Our services include, but not limited to:
Traditional Funeral Service
A traditional funeral usually includes a viewing that is held at a scheduled time, followed by a funeral service. Services can be held at a church, at the funeral home, or at another setting of your choice. Following services, a burial and reception usually take place.
Traditional Cremation Service
A traditional cremation service is similar to a traditional funeral service, except that cremation takes place after the service instead of burial. A rental casket or several different cremation caskets are available for public visitations. There are many options in the final disposition of the cremated remains, including burial, entombment, scattering or keeping the cremated remains privately.
A memorial service is any formal service that is held without the presence of the body. Memorial services often follow cremation, burial or entombment. A public or private viewing is still an option with memorial services.
When a graveside service is selected, the formal service is held at a cemetery instead of at a church or funeral home. A viewing, either private or public, may or may not be held before graveside services.
Direct burial is available to families that do not wish to have any type of services or rites performed. Final disposition takes place by burial or entombment at a cemetery as soon as possible.
Direct cremation is another option available to families that do not wish to have any type of services or rites performed. Final disposition takes place by cremation as soon as possible.
Whole body donation is the donation of the body to a medical institution for educational purposes. Funeral services or memorial services are still both options when whole body donation is selected.
Organ and Tissue Donation
Donating organ(s) and/or tissue(s) for transplant has no effect on the type of service that is available. The organ and tissue donation is usually completed in a hospital by a tissue procurement agency before we bring the body into our care.
Death Away From Home
When a death occurs away from home, we are here to help. We are experienced in bringing home the body of individuals that have died while away. The main thing to remember is to call us first so that we can arrange all the details for you from here. This eliminates much of the confusion, stress & excess expense of bringing your family member back home.
