Pre-Planning

Pre-planning for a funeral service is one of the most thoughtful ways you can protect those you love from unnecessary worry, doubt, and even financial hardship. By pre-planning, you take the burden of decision out of the hands of your family, which gives your family peace of mind in knowing that all of your personal choices have been arranged in advance. Pre-planning also allows for pre-financing, which guarantees funeral expenses at today's prices.

Traditional Service

A traditional funeral service should memorialize the individual, because no two individuals are the same. We each have special characteristics, hobbies, and interests. That is why we, at Bauer Funeral Home, encourage our families to personalize their loved ones funeral service.

Traditional calling hours are typically held one day at Bauer Funeral Home usually in the afternoon and evening with an open casket. The next day the funeral service may be held at the funeral home or church. Immediately following the service, burial will be held at a cemetery or Mausoleum.

Cremation Service

With cremation, families actually have more choices for a final resting place than with a traditional earth burial, because cremation gives a family more time to plan a personalized memorial celebration.

Once cremated, a loved one's ashes may be placed in an urn and taken to a final resting place such as a family plot, columbarium (an above ground burial), or a family member's home.

Others choose to have their ashes scattered over land or water (where permitted by law). In this case, a portion of the cremated remains is usually kept in a keepsake urn as a remembrance.

If you choose cremation, you can either rent or purchase a casket and have calling hours along with a funeral service followed by cremation. Or you can choose to have either a direct cremation with no services or have a direct cremation with a memorial service at a later date to celebrate your loved one's life.
