Caskets & Urns
Many people will choose a casket, urn, burial vault, or other outer burial container. Your funeral director will guide you through these choices in our newly remodeled selection room, featuring caskets from Batesville Casket Company. Whether you choose a conventional, commemorative, or classic style, you can tastefully personalize it with different materials, design elements, and other features. Use this as an opportunity to acknowledge the person’s hobbies, interests, faith, and service to their country.
