Because we understand the importance of gatherings before or after the Funeral or Memorial Service, we are here to help you and your family plan a catered luncheon or reception, giving friends and family an opportunity to laugh, to cry, and to begin the healing process together.

Whether you would prefer light lunch for your immediate family, or a full meal for family and friends, we are here to help you with the following options:



Family Lounge Catering

Many families feel they cannot leave once the visitation has begun. Although families are not able to bring their own meal into the funeral home, there are a variety of options available in our community through local licensed caterers to allow your family to remain together and eat at their leisure.

Church Catering

Many Churches in our area provide full funeral lunches, while others may only provide the facilities and you bring the food. We will work with any caterer to assist the church volunteers with any food services and cleanup needed. We will be happy to reserve and secure your luncheon with the church as well.

Outside Facility Catering

Many families wish to offer a reception to their family and friends, but do not wish to cook, serve and cleanup. We are here to offer suggestions and to help you plan a reception and/or meal at a local restaurant or facility of your choice.

Please contact us to learn more about catering options.
