Funeral and Cremation in Riverside, IL
A funeral is a service to honor someone who has passed on where the deceased's body is usually present. It is typically held in a church or a funeral home, or another event venue. Funerals are generally held within a short time period to the passing of the individual. On the other hand, a memorial service is not time-bound because it is not usually held with the deceased body present. It can also be done shortly after the death occurs but may be scheduled at a later date.
It is essential to know that funerals and cremations can occur for the same person. A funeral can be held prior to cremation if that fits the needs of your situation. Cremations can be handled with or without a formal service. Many factors may influence these decisions, including traditions, personal preferences, and budget, but knowing your options can help you sort through the decisions.
Traditional or Modern Services Available
There is no one “right way” to lay your loved one to rest. A chapel service with a religious theme might be exactly right for you, or a celebration of life with a non-denominational funeral leader might be a better fit. A graveside service sometimes makes the most sense. We will work with you to help identify your desires and needs.
Traditional burial with or without embalming the body or direct cremation are all excellent options. We can bring clarity to any of your questions or concerns regarding these processes. We are respectful and caring, no matter what choices you make. We can also assist your goals if you are looking to be very environmentally conscious.

Cremation is a method of final disposal of a dead body by burning (combustion). Cremation may serve as a funeral or post-funeral rite and as an alternative to burial or interment of an intact dead body. In some nations, including India and Nepal, open-air pyre cremation is an ancient practice. Learn More.
First and foremost: let your family and your loved ones know whether you want to be buried or cremated. Or you can put it in your will or in a letter to your family. Only let someone know your final response to prevent any unnecessary stress during an already emotional period. Let them know, too if you don't care. Learn More.
A funeral service most often is conducted within a week of the death occurring. A memorial service generally takes place some time after the death and disposition have occurred. It is usually a service specifically to memorialize the life of the deceased. Learn More.
