There are many decisions to make when planning a funeral service.  Many of these choices can be made prior to the need for them.  Advance funeral planning allows for thoughtful selections with time to ask questions of the funeral director.  It also allows input from others with an interest in the selections being made.

Having had you wishes expressed will allow your family the peace of mind of knowing the services provided will be what you wanted.  It also prevents them from having to make important decisions while in an emotional state of mind.

Financial arrangements can also be made for those planning a funeral service.  The Dietrich-Mothershead Funeral Home offers several funding options for paying funeral expenses in advance.  Any funds paid the funeral home as part of a funeral plan are held in a Missouri State approved Trust or Insurance Product.  These funds are audited, transferable to another funeral service provider, and protected in case the beneficiary of the funeral plan must apply for Medicaid.

We encounter many questions about advance funeral planning. Please contact us anytime – we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
