Carlson-Lillemoen Funeral Home provides personalized and meaningful services to meet the personal desires of the families we serve. We pride ourselves on making this difficult time a bit more comforting to the families we serve. We have the knowledge and experience to assist in every aspect of the funeral planning process. We know that families do not deal with death on an every day occasion and we are here to ask and answer all the right questions. Though not a complete list of the services Carlson-Lillemoen Funeral Home provides, the following are several available:
Many people are members of a church which offers a most sacred and serene setting for the funeral or memorial service. Our staff is knowledgeable about the customs and procedures of our local churches. We are able to provide guidance and make suggestions to the families to ensure that the planning of their loved ones service can be as easy as possible for them. Our goal is to take away much of the burden from the family so they can focus on making this time a time about their loved one and their loved one's legacy. Beyond the planning stages, we will also take care of transporting the floral arrangements from our facility to the church as well as any photo memorials and items that may have been displayed at the visitation the evening prior. We will arrive early at the church to arrange the flowers and any personal displays. Our staff is there to assist and guide the family as well as provide direction to the visitors. At the conclusion we will discuss what the family's wishes are in regard to the floral arrangements and will gladly distribute them as to their wishes.
For those families that may not be church members or just wish to have a service elsewhere, our chapel may be a perfect choice. Our chapel provides a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere that families and their friends can gather and pay tribute to the the life of their loved one. Our chapel can be intimate for the smaller gatherings and comfortable for larger services. Our staff will take care of arranging the floral pieces, assist with the memorial displays of photos and personal items, and provide guidance to keep the family at ease at a most difficult time. We also offer the option of catering food following the funeral or memorial service. At the completion of the service we will consult with the family about the floral arrangements. We will gladly deliver any of the floral offerings to the family's choice of local nursing home, hospital or other facility.
A memorial service is the type of service in which the body is not present. This may be because of prior burial or cremation. A personalized Memorial Service with photographs and memorabilia can be held in our funeral home chapel or a location of choice. We can assist in making the memorial service as personalized as possible to make the person's legacy known. Whether the family chooses to have the service in a church, our chapel or any other location, we can assure them that we provide the same dignified and professional service and attention to detail as the traditional funeral service.
We can assist in making all of the arrangements necessary for the graveside service. We will make all of the necessary contacts to ensure that the graveside service will be a fitting alternative to the traditional funeral service.
We can arrange to have food catered at the funeral home, church, or elsewhere. It can be as simple as bar/cookies, appetizers, or a complete meal. Our staff will set up and clean up so you will not have to worry and can spend time with family and friends.
We listen to our families and help them create a service that is truly personal, meaningful and memorable, a real tribute to the life of their loved one. We go the extra mile to accommodate all the families' wishes. Our funeral home also offers the following:
