Funeral Service Options
Whether a death is sudden or expected, the loss of a loved one is indescribable. When you are in a heightened emotional state, even the most basic decisions can seem staggering. This section seeks to guide you through our available selections.
Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation and is followed by a funeral service. While the casket is typically present at both these events, it is your decision whether to have the casket open. You then have a number of options for interment.
Cremation is an increasingly popular option for many people, serving as an alternative to burial. Reasons for preferring cremation vary. Some religions request it, while other people consider it more environmentally conscious. Some may simply like the idea of cremation more. During cremation, the remains are placed in a special furnace and reduced to resemble coarse sand.
We understand that your time is important so our professional staff will work around your schedule to meet with your family for an arrangement consultation. During this time, your director will be able to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have as they guide you through the arrangement process.
This tool should only be used once you have contacted the funeral home and have informed them of your immediate needs. This form can be used as an easy way to get your wishes and your information in one place, all from the comfort of your own home.
At Audubon Funeral Home, we believe each funeral should be as unique as the life being celebrated. We encourage families to share ideas for personalization and we’ll do our best to incorporate these ideas into the service. For example, integrating personal touches through memorabilia, memorial tribute videos, floral arrangements, and music choices are just a few ways to personalize a funeral service.
Our local florists are committed to offering only the finest floral arrangements, and are backed by their professionalism and prompt service.

A pre-arrangement helps your family understand exactly what your wishes are. This can tremendously ease the burden of decision making during an incredibly stressful time. However, sometimes final wishes change, whether due to relocation, a change in circumstances, or choosing to utilize a funeral home you feel more comfortable with.
