At The Dietrich-Mothershead Funeral Home, we provided memorial service options for loved ones who choose cremation over a traditional burial. All of our cremation services include assistance with the permanent placement of the urn at a cemetery or columbarium. In addition to ceremonial remembrance which includes a service, we offer simple cremation which does not include memorial services.

Military Funeral Services

Military funeral honors demonstrate deep gratitude for those who have bravely served our country. If your loved one is an eligible veteran, a representative from their respective military branch will present a family member or designated close friend with a folded American flag. The emotionally moving and powerful musical tradition of “Taps” may also be incorporated into the service. It’s truly an honor to serve the men and women who fought for our freedoms, and we will do everything we can to show our appreciation.


Headstones commemorate the life and legacy of a person you love dearly. They withstand the test of time and may serve as a piece of history for future generations. Therefore, it’s important to be well-informed about your options and consider each factor, such as style, granite color, inscriptions, add-ons, and more. Our staff of experts will guide you through the entire process, ensuring you’re confident about your decision.
