Burial Information

A funeral is an important part of grieving, and often the first step in the healing process. For thousands of years, funerals have been the preferred means of expressing grief and paying tribute to loved ones.

When dealing with loss and grief, there is no single solution that meets the needs of every individual. The type of service chosen is largely based on the personal preferences of both the survivors and the deceased. The important thing is that you acknowledge the passing of a loved one in a way that is meaningful and helpful in your healing, and that you realize you are not alone.

At Shoshone Funeral Services, we understand that all the decisions that go into planning a funeral can seem overwhelming.  Our trained professionals will help guide you through the process of selecting the type of service to choosing a casket, vault, and other important items.
