Service Options

Sometimes the thought of planning a funeral seems too difficult for those who've suffered a loss. We're here to help lighten your burden and remind you of the true value a ceremony can hold for you and your family.


The Healing Power of a Service

Coping with a loss is never easy, and services are an essential part of the recovery process. A Funeral service provides those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye, and come to terms with the loss. Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to connect, share memories, offer words of sympathy, and create a lasting network of comfort and support as they start the journey toward healing and peace. No matter the setting, style, or direction you choose, our professional staff are honored to assist you in creating a service that reflects your loved one's unique life journey.

Burial Services

There are different elements you can choose from when arranging a burial, depending upon your individual needs and preferences:

Immediate Burial means that your loved one's physical remains will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering.

Visitation (also called a "viewing", "wake" or "calling hours") allows family and friends to gather in a room with the departed loved one (in an open or closed casket) and gives everyone the opportunity to say goodbye and offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved.

Funeral or Memorial Services can take place at a funeral home, in a church or even at your home. A funeral denotes that the body is present while a memorial lets friends and family know that the loved one's body will not be present but will represented by the urn or a photograph.  The service is a ceremony which serves to celebrate, honor, and remember the life of the deceased. Whether traditional or unique, both the visitation and the funeral service can be personalized to reflect the individuality of your loved one. Wondering how to have a service when you need someone to officiate?  We create personalized services with one of our Celebrants acting as the officiant. For more information, visit our page on Celebrating Life.

Graveside, Chapel, or Committal Services are held at the cemetery, and allow family and friends to be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final disposition through ground burial.

International Shipping 

The professionals at Fisher Funeral Chapel have both experience and expertise when it comes to sending a loved one via domestic flight or abroad to their final resting place. We are highly experienced in the necessary paperwork and guidelines to follow for domestic and international shipping of remains.  Please understand that this process does take a little time to get the proper paperwork complete and to arrange flights.  We can also help with finding a funeral home at the destination to take care of things once your loved one has made it to their final destination.  To help us get the paperwork prepared in a timely manner, we will need the decedent's passport, cemetery information, and biographical information for the death certificate. We will need additional time if translation of documents are required.  If a death has no yet occurred, but you plan on shipping a loved one to another location at the time of need, it is always a good idea to meet with us in advance so we can make sure we have everything we need in place.  This advanced planning makes things so much easier on the family and the funeral home.  Please schedule an appointment with us as soon as you can.  We would be happy to answer all of your questions. If you are traveling and a death occurs, please call our funeral home first to assist you in all aspects of bringing your loved one home. 


Cremation Services

We are the first funeral home in the area to offer flameless cremation (alkaline hydrolysis) in addition to the standard flame cremation. 

Direct Cremation is the most basic option available and is the most common choice when affordability is a concern.  

Traditional Cremation The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can't be a funeral service or visitation. This is absolutely not the case - when you choose to care for the physical remains through cremation, we encourage you to consider holding a memorial service as well. There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one's life: you can provide a chance for friends and family to say goodbye through a final viewing before the cremation, and you can also hold a formal service either before or after the cremation occurs. After the cremation itself, there are a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition:
Interment means that you'll bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in the family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. Ask our staff for a detailed list of interment possibilities.

Graveside Services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.

Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You can also choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for internment or another form of disposition.

Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one's final resting place in a nearby location. We offer a wide assortment of urns, keepsakes and cremation jewelry. 

Live Funeral Webcasting

We can help you use technology to bring together family and friends from all over the world in honor of a loved one who has passed. Webcasting your loved one's service gives those who are unable to travel the ability to see the service live or watch it later at their convenience. This is an especially meaningful solution for loved ones who are serving overseas and cannot attend the funeral in person.


Pet Loss Services 

We understand the loss of a pet is difficult.  Our beloved pets offer us their friendship and close companionship as an important part of our lives.  Once they are gone, they leave holes in our hearts that we must try to heal.  We offer pet loss cremation services, as well as burial and memorial merchandise to help you during this difficult time.  We know that your pet is a member of the family and we will treat them as such. Call us for more information.
