At Providence we feel the need to look after those who look after us nationally and locally. Therefore, we provide incentives to the following individuals:
At Providence Funeral & Cremation Service we appreciate the service of our local firefighters, first responders and law enforcement and hope we never have to offer this service. We realize that these are hazardous occupations that can result in the ultimate sacrifice to keep our community safe. Any full time, firefighter, first responder or law enforcement official that is killed in the line of duty will receive a funeral or cremation service and merchandise at no charge. (restrictions apply)
We at Providence also form affinity relationships with churches and businesses. For more information please contact us.
Maybe you aren’t sure what kind of funeral service you want to have, whether for you or a loved one. Services may include traditional funerals, wakes, visitations, memorial services and celebrations of life. Keep in mind that many people choose to include more than one of these events when remembering their loved one. It’s all about honoring the person through a unique service that fits their personality as well as what was important to them.
A memorial service is similar to a funeral service in many ways. The main difference is that at a funeral, the body is present as a focal point for the service, whether in a closed or open casket, but at a memorial service, the body is not present. Usually, a framed portrait or an urn serves as the focal point at a memorial service.
A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony.
