At Arner Funeral Chapel our goal is to personalize each funeral to make it as special and memorable as possible for family and friends. Some ways we do this are:
Help choose the casket - a casket that reflects the deceased's personality, life-style, religion, profession, organizational affiliation or hobby can enhance the experience.
Help select the music - Music is an important part of any funeral ceremony. One purpose of the music is to help us access our feelings, which can be quite mixed at this time.
Symbols - Symbols can say what words cannot at this most difficult time. Symbols used at the time of the funeral often include flowers (representing love and beauty), food (representing a way for friends to nurture mourners and show support), and candles (representing the spirit, and for some, the continuation of life after death).
Memories - Memories are the most precious legacy we have after someone dies. Some creative ways for sharing memories at funerals include setting up a memory table and picture boards, or simply asking friends and family members to informally share stories during the ceremony.
Once we know your needs, it's time for you to trust in us. We'll make all the arrangements and provide a service that's appropriate and personal - a fitting tribute to a precious life. We are a full service funeral home that offers:

As times change, trends change too. Today, many opportunities exist for meaningful services for the befit of family and friends - both before and after a cremation takes place. Many people believe at the time of death only two basic choices exist: immediate cremation of the body or a complete funeral including viewing, followed by a burial. Actually, several options exist which incorporate the most helpful aspects of both types of services. We will take the time to listen to, and answer the questions you may have about cremation options. Then we will provide the most meaningful and personalized service possible. We provide a complete line of cremation CASKETS and URNS to accommodate any budget and any preference.
