Funeral Service Options

Funeral Service Options

Every family is different, and not everyone wants the same type of funeral. Funeral practices are influenced by religious and cultural traditions, costs and personal preferences. The Karvonen & Son Funeral Home offers many different services. Our experience has prepared us to help, to reassure, and to understand when a family faces the loss of a loved one. Here one finds a quiet gentleness in an atmosphere of dignity, efficiency, and trust. We believe your service choice is a personal decision.

Your Role In The Service

Your role is to decide how best to memorialize your departed loved one and how best to celebrate his or her life.

There are a host of options from which to select. Bring us your ideas, concepts, desires, wishes, thoughts, and expectations. We will work with you to make them a reality.

As you make your decisions, you may wish to recall a principle that guides us in our mission to serve our families: A life well-lived is a life worth remembering.

Our Role In The Service

Our role is to transform your ideas, concepts, desires, wishes, thoughts, and expectations into a reality that will provide you, your family, and friends with peaceful memories of the funeral experience.

We will work with you and your budget to ensure that a positive funeral experience is not diminished by lingering financial considerations. Sometimes we can suggest options or alternative ways of achieving the same objective.

Once we understand what you wish to accomplish, we may also be able to suggest other things that you may have overlooked. Most often our suggestions can enhance the quality of the funeral experience; sometimes they may be helpful in confirming your initial thoughts.

Throughout the funeral process, be assured that our objective is the same—to complete the tasks you assign to us that will deliver the results you want.

You are in charge. You are in control. And we are confident that you, like our other clients, will find the experience both affirming and calming.


Private Family Viewing Room

Our Private Family Viewing Room allows families to remember and honor their loved ones in a special way before burial or the cremation process is complete. It serves as a central gathering place for family and friends to give emotional support to one another, while encouraging mourners to face the pain of their loss. The opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings helps them to better cope with their grief, and enables them to move forward in their lives. It initiates the grief process while bringing closure to the death by remembering their lives.
