Traditonal Services

Traditional service at Mitchell-Jerdan Funeral Home is arranged and conducted by a licensed and trained funeral director. The service is one that consists of preparing your loved one for a viewing in our establishment, a place of worship, or sometimes both. This acknowledges the life of the person who died and a reflection of their life can be expressed through a eulogy. It can be delivered by a clergy person, a family member, or friend. Throughout these ceremonies, we encourage as much participation from family, friends and even young ones, if they so choose, to support one another in their grief. A funeral procession to the person's final resting place follows the ceremony. This is where family, friends and loved ones are given a chance to say their final goodbye. The family may stay as long as needed at the place of burial and the deceased is laid to rest upon their departure.

This service includes the use of our funeral home and equipment, vehicles, and attentive services of our staff. Our staff of professionals remove the deceased from the place of death, assist in completing the required legal documents, prepare the body for the viewing, if you so wish, and transportation to their final resting place. Additional costs can vary depending on the choice of casket, vault, memorial urns (if cremated) and clothing.
