Funeral planning can be a difficult process while grieving the loss of a loved one. But having a funeral provides those who are grieving a place to receive support, come to terms with their loss, say goodbye, and honor their loved one’s life. Being surrounded by family and friends lets everyone share stories and memories and creates a lasting support system as everyone begins their grief journey.
Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral and Cremation Service operates the only on-site crematory in the Newark-Heath community. For you this means even greater peace of mind. Your loved one is always in our care and our staff is involved in every step of the cremation process. We also adhere to strict identification procedures to ensure things are in order before, during and after the cremation is completed.
When choosing cremation, there are many service options available. You may choose to have a traditional funeral service followed by cremation. With this option, your loved one is present for the viewing and the funeral service. An oak service casket is typically used during the visitation and service.
Sometimes families prefer a memorial service where the body is not present. When a memorial service is selected, there are usually fewer time constraints. While some families may opt to have a memorial service immediately following the death of a loved one, others may choose to wait weeks or even months after to have a service. It really depends on the circumstances and desires of each individual family.
With cremation, there are various means of disposition available. The cremains can be inurned in a cemetery - either by earth burial or placement in a columbarium niche. They can also be placed in an a decorative urn and kept in the home. Cremains may be scattered on land or sea, separated and placed in smaller keepsake urns, placed in keepsake jewelry or even blown into a piece of glass artwork.
The options available with cremation are as varied and unique as the individuals being celebrated and remembered. Please be assured that our funeral directors and staff are here to help guide you in selecting the most fitting tribute to your loved one.
