Why Preplan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that preplanning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With preplanning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time.

Advantages & Security of Pre-Arranging

  • Allows you time to make plans and have a clearer perspective, rather than a time of making choices under a difficult and stressful time.
  • If you wish, a Pre-Arrangment allows your family to have input.
  • Your plan should have flexibility because circumstances in your life may change.
  • Pre-Arranging helps insure a financial responsibility is not placed on your family

  • Pastor, Priest, or other Persons who are to speak at your funeral
  • Music
  • Casket
  • Place of the Service (chapel, church, or grave side)
  • Type of vault or outer burial container

Cremation Services

Written by


Riverwood Family Funeral Services also offers cremation as an alternative to the traditional burial.  Choosing cremation however, does not limit your options to have a visitation and funeral/memorial service.  A casket can be purchased or rented for this service, and Riverwood Family Funeral Services also has a selection of urns that can be purchased.
Burial spaces are also available in Riverwood's Memorial Park, or your loved one's cremains can be part of our memorial scatter garden. Please contact a member of our staff for further options available.
