Caring for another when they can no longer care for themselves is an important responsibility, and planning the funeral for a loved one is one of the most caring gifts one can do for another. As the funeral director and team, we are here to help guide you through the many decisions that need to be made to honor the memory and life of your loved one.

Where to Begin

The arrangements for the funeral can take place at the funeral home or in the comfort of your own home. The next-of-kin and other family members must be present to make the decisions regarding the services to take place over the following days. The meeting can be divided into to parts. First, vital information is gathered by the director in order to complete the death certificate, necessary authorizations, and permits. This information consists of:

  • The deceased's legal name
  • Birth date
  • Birthplace
  • Social security number
  • Occupation
  • Parent's names
  • and other pertinent information.

The arrangement process also consists of determining the types of services desired by the family and any preference communicated by the deceased prior to passing. The important decisions such as selecting the place and time of the church mass or service, visiting hours, committal service and all of the details accompanying these choices.

Additional Processes

Depending on the nature of the passing, your loved ones body will either come directly to the funeral home, or we will coordinate transporting from the state medical examiners to our care. More information outlining the proceedings can be found on our When Death Occurs page. By choosing Olson & Parent Funeral Home, you are guaranteed that your loved ones remains are under 24/7 care, as our funeral home is also our family home.

As you work with the funeral director in the following days, we will explain the process and timeline of the services selected and review all necessary disclosures and legal requirements involved. We are dedicated to honoring your requests and following your choices and instructions to their exact detail.

Pre-Arranging

Many individuals and families find it is easier to make these arrangements in advance. The best time to sit and discuss funeral options is before they are needed so that more open family discussion can occur while family members are not under the emotional distress of a recent passing.
