Information about Cremation


Cremation like burial is another form of the disposition of human remains.

The cremation casket or container is placed in the cremation chamber and through an intense heat the body is reduced to bone fragments, known as cremated remains.

Depending on the families wishes the cremated remains can be scattered, placed in a cemetery or kept at home.

Cremation as the choice of disposition does not preclude the family from having a public visitation. The deceased would be embalmed, dressed, cosmetized and casketed in a cremation or rental casket for the services. The service can be held at the funeral home or a church followed by the cremation. If a family chooses not to have a visitation a memorial service at the funeral home or a church offers another way their loved one can be remembered. Landmark Funeral Home offers a Celebration of Life ceremony with Valerie Panciera-Rieth coordinating and officiating the memorialization of your loved one.

Most religions accept cremation as the disposition of the human remains. The Catholic church now allows the urn to be present in church for a memorial mass.

If there are questions concerning cremation the staff of Landmark Funeral Home is here to answer and guide the family thru the funeral process.
