Lasater Funeral Homes will guide you and your family in creating a meaningful service to honor the life and memory of your loved one.

All too often families discount the value of a ceremony after the death of a loved one. Sometimes early in the grief process it might seem easier to make funeral arrangements that are simple and quick.  Although, coming together after a loss with family, friends, and neighbors is a very essential part of the grieving process. The service or ceremony provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of a life that has lived and impact they have had on your family and friends.  The service can take place in our funeral home, your church, or a location of your choice. Regardless of the location, gathering with loved ones provides an opportunity to grieve.  This is witness through sharing of memories and offering emotional comfort to one another.

Arranging a funeral requires a lot of decision making and often in a short period of time with a lot of emotions.  Fortunately, the staff at Lasater Funeral Homes are here to help. When a death occurs, we will meet with you to determine the type of service most appropriate for your loved one, your family, and your budget.

Types of Services offered by Lasater Funeral Home:

Funeral Options:

CasketWe offer various burial options and ceremonial styles. A large selection of caskets in a variety of colors, styles, and personalization.

Traditional Burial Service:

Includes family and friends visitation followed by funeral services at either our funeral home or your church.  Burial would follow in a cemetery or mausoleum.

Graveside Burial Service

Family and friend meet directly at the burial site for the funeral service.

Immediate Burial Service

This is the simplest burial option.  The deceased body is not embalmed and therefore is for someone with no viewing options.

Cremation Options:

Cremation-UrnThe number of people choosing cremation has increased significally in the past few years.  Although, choosing cremation does not limit you.  What services are done prior to or after the cremation process is up to the family.

Full Service Cremation

This service would be similar to traditional burial.  Except the cremation process would follow the funeral service instead of the casketed burial.  This service can be accommodated by use of cremation casket (casket designed for cremation) or use of a rental casket for visitation and funeral service.  Following the visitation, funeral service, and cremation the cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered or returned to family for safe keeping.

Cremation with Memorial Service/ Graveside Service

This service would include direct cremation of the deceased with no public viewing. Includes family and friends for visitation followed by funeral services at either our funeral home or your church.  The cremated remains can be then buried, properly scattered or returned to family for safe keeping.

Direct Cremation (No Services)

The deceased body is removed from place of death and prepared for the cremation process. The deceased body is not embalmed. Therefore no visitation with this option. ONLY a private identification viewing is permitted by one authorized representative. Bedside “goodbyes” are encouraged with this options.
