Advanced Planning

Pre-Planning Funeral Arrangements

Preparing a memorial service for you or a loved one might feel overwhelming. But making arrangements in advance of a death can bring peace of mind to you and your family. Advance planning reduces the sudden emotional and financial stress associated with loss. It lets you select the memorial, interment and services you prefer, and it helps your family in their time of grief.

Ron Nelson, our director of family services, can help you pre-plan your funeral, whether you have specific requests or general preferences. He can also discuss your options for pre-funding your final expenses. Ron’s role is to serve Kenosha families as they plan for the last phase in the circle of life. His consultation services come at no cost to you.

Contact Ron at 262-658-4101 or via email to discuss pre-planning funeral arrangements for you or a loved one.
