Traditional Burial

No one life has been lived the same as another, so why have a funeral that has been given a thousand times before?


Our funeral homes hosts Celebration of Life events rather than the same "cookie cutter" funeral.


We start with the first-call and immediately get to know and connect with your family to identify the needs and wishes specific to each person.


From our beautiful, unique, custom memorial folders, to the memorial DVD and beyond, the attention to detail and personalization far exceeds other area firms.


Traditional Burial typically consist of the body being interned with a casket made of steel or wood; and an outer burial container, otherwise referred to as "the burial vault".

It is not required by law to purchase an outer burial container. The outer burial container can however be a requirement of the cemetery where burial is to take place of the deceased. Each cemetery holds rules and regulations of their own discretion.

From our first day in business, our outer burial containers are all provided locally through Central Missouri Vault Company, LLC - New Bloomfield, Missouri. We are proud to support our local vendor, and believe in the quality product they offer.

Our caskets are provided from two sources here in Missouri. Largely dependent on style, and budget; we have over 50 caskets to choose from.

Special made; Trappist Caskets from the monks of New Melleray Abbey; are popular and meaningful to our Catholic families. - You may visit their website directly for further information. Trappist Caskets - click here
