When my husband died suddenly last year, it was a terrible shock to our whole family. We were so overcome with grief that we felt paralyzed. Fortunately, he had already made his preferences known to us and to our funeral director. That was a comfort to me and the children.

Pre-Arranging a Funeral:
A Thoughtful Act

Pre-arranging a funeral benefits you and your loved ones so that the burden isn't placed on them during a difficult and sometimes traumatic time. Our funeral directors at Mitchell-Jerdan are experts in providing pre-need services. We facilitate a discussion between you and your family, if you wish. We welcome you to share your thoughts on how you would want to be laid to rest, keeping in mind the sensitivity of the subject. Once your decisions are finalized, we put it in writing.

We make it simple

To get started, download our free pre-planning form and fill it out in the privacy of your home. You can then either keep it in a safe place, or bring it to us to keep on file for you. We also suggest that you inform a family member or close friend about your plan so they can access it if needed.

For generations, the staff at Mitchell-Jerdan Funeral Home recognizes these arrangements as one of the most effective ways to allow your family to begin the grieving process. It takes away your family and friends' worries of wondering if they did what you would have wanted. Furthermore, it reduces costs in the long run. Our staff will work with you to customize the arrangement and make it affordable yet truly memorable.
