Funeral Planning

Since arranging a funeral is done so seldom in one’s lifetime, most people are unaware of the many elements of a funeral ceremony. To accommodate a growing need for pre-planning a funeral service, whether it is for yourself or a loved one, our directors are available by appointment to help you plan the most meaningful service. Preplanning provides an opportunity for an open discussion with your family- the people who will be most affected by your decisions and funeral service choices. You can start by looking at the information on our web site, or visit us in person or by phone with one of our staff. We can take you through the pre-planning process, step by step, explaining all your options. You can make arrangements yourself, or better yet, involve your family.

Preplanning a funeral or cremation service in advance allows a person to state his or her wishes in writing. Besides fulfilling the persons desires, the other positive aspect of preplanning is that it relieves the emotional burden from the surviving family members and or spouse to make the right choices at a very difficult time.

Many people purchase burial plots or mausoleum spaces in advance, let us at the Magner Funeral Home help you to take the next step and plan for your final arrangements, while taking the burden off your family.
