Cremation With Remembrance
Evergreen Funeral Home & Cemetery can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
Whether you’re planning ahead or deciding on the best option for your loved one, cremation services are a simple and affordable approach that can bring you comfort and peace. We are finding that many are choosing cremation for a number of reasons. This approach does not limit your choices and in fact, can give you just as many options as you would have with a more elaborate burial.
Final Resting Place Options
Beyond choosing the actual urn, the decision of where to place the urn is an important one. A traditional burial plot is an option. Others choose an indoor or outdoor niche or columbarium. Mausoleums and special gardens designed specifically for memorializing urns are also available.
Chapel or Graveside Service
The expression of grief is an important part of the process. Graveside and chapel services are possible options as you seek to find the closure you need.
Public Viewings and Visitations
Both family and friends find the grieving process easier when they have the chance to say goodbye. Your memorial plans can include holding viewing and visitations for your loved one. Pay tribute with a charming reception for family and friends.
Urns and Keepsakes
While the memories remain, you may wish to have a keepsake. We offer an array of cremation products, including keepsake urns, jewelry and memorial record packages, to help you keep your loved one with you forever.

What is cremation and what choices can be made?

Similar to a traditional service, cremation allows for visitations, as well as funeral or memorial gatherings to celebrate a life well lived. Learn more in our video about cremation.
