A traditional service, as selected by most families in our area, consists of a family or public viewing of the deceased. Following this, typically will be a service held at the funeral home or church. This would be followed by earth burial or entombment in an above ground mausoleum.
Caskets selected may cost from hundreds dollars to several thousands of dollars depending on the material the casket is constructed of. Most cemeteries require an outer burial container or vault. These containers are constructed of concrete and are designed to hold the weight of the earth, maintaining the cemetery property. Most families choose a sealed vault for this purpose. These vaults are constructed of concrete and are designed to not only protect the gravesite, but are manufactured with inner liners that not only restrict the entrance of graveside elements (water and earth) but increase the strength of the vault. Minimum concrete containers are also available to meet the minimum requirements of the cemetery but provide no protective (sealing) properties.
A graveside service can be another option. This many times would follow a time of visitation at the funeral home. The casketed remains would then be transferred to the cemetery where a graveside ceremony could take place followed by the burial. A graveside service may also be held at a mausoleum.
A memorial service is held when the deceased is not present. It may take place at our funeral home, a church, or another place chosen by the family. This is a time to remember a loved one through fellowship with friends and family. The memorial service can also be an addition to a traditional funeral service. For instance, having a traditional funeral service here, and then memorial service back in the deceased’s hometown.

Traditional Funeral Followed by Cremation
A complete traditional funeral can be held followed by cremation. This service will be just like a traditional funeral service except cremation will follow the service and/or visitation instead of the casketed burial. This can be accommodated by the use of a cremation casket (casket that is designed to be cremated) or a rental casket may be used. Following the visitation, service or ceremony, and eventual cremation, the cremated remains can be buried, inurned in a mausoleum, properly scattered, or returned to the family for safe keeping. A wide variety urns are available. Urns may be constructed of wood, semi-precious metals, glass or even plastic. We even have urns that are designed for scattering as well as jewelry and keepsakes designed to hold cremains. All urns may be personalized as desired. Feel free to stop in and look at all the urns and options available to you.
An immediate cremation service can be arranged as an immediate disposition of the body, but is most times followed by a memorial service at the funeral home, church or other location. A memorial service is one where the body is not present. We recommend that if you select an immediate cremation that you are allowed a time, if possible, to privately view the body as a family. Viewing of the deceased is a very important step in acknowledging that the death has occurred. Having some type of service or ceremony is also a key ingredient to a healthy recovery of a loss due to a death.
At Weddle Funeral Service, we encourage families to create very personalized services. It is important to acknowledge that life that has been lived and to offer to the community a way in which to celebrate that life. By offering services that are very personal and special, a unique life can be remembered and honored in a way that is comforting to the family and friends.
