A traditional funeral is a service generally preceded by a visitation and viewing, followed by a funeral service and burial, entombment, or cremation. Traditions vary according to religious or ethnic origin. Geilenfeld Funeral Home caters to all faiths. Funeral services are tailored to meet the preferences and expectations of that special person's family and friends, as well as, the preordained desires of the deceased. They can be as personalized and unique as those for whom the service is arranged.
Funeral Directors on-call 24 hours a day
We, as funeral directors, are available 24-hours a day to answer a call to serve, whether it is at home or in a health care facility.
Cremation services include several choices and options for personalization and memorialization. These services may either precede or follow the actual cremation and often assist friends and relatives with the grieving process by providing them opportunity to pay their final respects. Services often include the following options:

- Private family viewing followed by religious or contemporary services and cremation
- Private cremation and memorial services
