Traditional Burials

A funeral is more than a way to mourn a loss; it is also a collective celebration of a life well-lived. At O'Connors we strive to be an innovative leader in developing new ways for families to create one-of-a-kind services that truly reflect the personality and interests of your loved one.

Traditional Funeral Services may be in the Funeral Home or a place of Worship. Some families may decide to Celebrate a Life well lived at a park, sports event, or a evening dinner cruise along one of our many rivers.



The Visitation: Accepting condolences from your friends Saying Goodbye to the one so loved

Visitation is an event that enables family and friends the opportunity to express sympathy and to share memories with the family of the deceased, as well as the opportunity to say your own goodbyes. Visitations are for the living, enabling the bereaved to receive the support of friends and family immediately following the death. Our comfortable and attractive facilities offer you the opportunity to meet in an environment that enhances this difficult yet meaningful experience, whether in a large or an intimate setting.

When a traditional funeral service is preferred, you want an experienced professional. We have relationships with area clergy, and if desired, can put you in touch with someone with understanding about what you are going through, and how you might like to personalize the service

Services may be religious, secular, or spiritual, but should always reflect your loved one. We strive to make this event meaningful to your beliefs & traditions as well as making it in accordance with your desires. Helping you make this ceremony everything you want it to be is crucial for us.



Cemetery Arrangements

Whatever your choice regarding your loved one's final resting place, we can assist you. Our sensitive staff will guide you--whether you already have a cemetery plot, or if you need to select a cemetery. There are many choices available to you; and we will support you as you decide what would be appropriate for your family.



Custom designed flowers

For a unique tribute and a distinctive acknowledgement of your loved one, let us put you in touch with someone who can custom design an exclusive floral arrangement.



A Favorite Song

In times of sorrow, funeral music can say what the heart finds no words for. During the service, favorite songs of your loved one may be played, interspersed between eulogies and scripture readings. These may include favorite popular songs, or music that reflects a tradition or a specific culture. Let us assist you in arranging that special musical touch.



The Final Ride

For those who appreciate the classic Cadillacs of the 1990's, we proudly serve our clients our matching lead car and hearse, 1990 and 1991. Both are restored to new condition and match our company image, building, and identity.
