Full Service Burials

Traditional Funeral Options for Waterloo, Cedar Falls & Des Moines

A full service burial  is also referred to commonly as a traditional service. The evening before the ceremony is set aside for the visitation, where family and friends will come to pay their respects to the person who has passed away. The casket is generally open and the family is nearby to receive the support of the visitors. The next day a funeral is held, with the casket present, at the funeral home or a place of worship. After the ceremony is complete, the person is taken to the cemetery or mausoleum and the final goodbye is held in the form of a committal ceremony prior to the person being laid to rest.
