What Does the Funeral Home Do?

What happens after someone dies? Under normal circumstances, a family member, friend, or the facility where the death occurred will call the funeral home and give notification. We will then bring the deceased to the funeral home. Followed by a meeting with the family in order to finalize arrangements. This meeting may take place at either the funeral home or at any location of your choosing. During this conference we will gather the necessary information for the death notice (obituary) as well as the death certificate. We will also discuss what type of services will best fit your family's needs, and appropriate merchandise (if needed) will be selected at this time. We offer caskets, vaults, cremation urns and related funeral goods. Fischer Funeral Care will then coordinate the visitation, funeral & burial (or cremation). Following the funeral, we will file insurance benefits, veterans benefits, death certificates and notify Social Security on your behalf. At Fischer Funeral Care the focus is on the care your family receives from us. [The series of events following a death will vary. The information here is general and meant to give you some idea of what to expect.]

Fischer Funeral Care Will:

  • Come to your home to make arrangements
  • Assist you in making sound decisions regarding your loved one’s services
  • Ensure that no detail is overlooked
  • Help you with pre-planning and pre-paying

Pre-Arranging A Funeral:

When it is practical or possible, making funeral arrangements in advance of need can provide the peace of mind that all details have been taken care of in a way that is satisfying to one’s self and one’s survivors. A family discussion combined with our counsel can assure that everyone involved feels comfortable with the arrangements. Certainly we would all prefer that our loved ones be able to say afterward "I’m glad we did" rather than "I wish we had". Pre-planning can help accomplish this goal. Today, making any kind of funeral arrangements involves many choices and decisions. It is helpful to consider all of the options and take time to ask questions before making final decisions about such an important event. It is our intent to help make the entire experience as easy as possible.

If you have already completed funeral arrangements and pre-paid with another funeral home, Fischer Funeral Care will honor, accept, and convert that account at ANY time and at no additional cost to you.

Pre-paying: You will benefit by setting up a pre-paid funeral. Pre-payment freezes the funeral home charges at today™s prices. The money is placed into an insurance policy, which you own. You may pay in one lump sum, or you can set up monthly payments: 12 months same as cash or 36, 60, or 120 monthly premiums for lower monthly payments.
