Service is our main priority. Our staff is courteous and sympathetic to your many needs. All services are handled with dignity and respect by our staff at Davis Funeral Service. Careful attention to your loved one ensures peace of mind.
Understanding that each family's wishes are different, we offer numerous alternatives. Together with your family, we can help create a service of remembrance and a tribute to life as unique as the individual. Listed below are several of the most common options available:
Traditional Funeral Service
The traditional funeral service and burial is the most common service of remembrance in this area. A service at a church, or in our chapel would be followed by burial in a cemetery. A time of fellowship, renewal and visitation are some key elements of this type of service. Music selections, musicians, and pall bearers are all various aspects of a traditional funeral service.
Cremation is an alternative to earth burial. For those who prefer cremation, several options are available. These include a service with visitation and viewing followed by cremation. Families may choose cremation followed by a memorial service, with or without a time for a private family viewing and/or public visitation. In addition, we offer immediate cremation with no service. Following the cremation process, families may decide to inter the cremated remains at a cemetery, scatter the cremated remains, keep them in their home, or any combination thereof.
Pre-arrangement is a thoughtful method of funeral planning which grows in popularity each year. Some people do this with the sincere desire to avoid being a burden on their families. Others like the idea of having everything taken care of, and yet others may have no one else who can make arrangements for them.
When a death occurs it is the next of kin who assumes primary responsibility for the disposition. Making funeral arrangements for someone while guessing at their preferences may be one of the most difficult tasks a person can face. Having your choices and instructions on file with a funeral director eliminates unresolved questions which may confound others. It is also wise to keep a copy of your pre-arrangement forms and discuss them with family members so that everyone understands your wishes. It is essential to include the suggestions and ideas of family since your death will directly affect them.
Funding your arrangements is another important decision to be make in the pre-arrangement process. While funding is not necessary to create a pre-arrangement, it can further ease the financial concerns of family members. This also allows you to arrange the kind of service you prefer and be assured of adequate funds for the future payment of the service. We have several options available for funding your pre-arrangements whatever your situation.
Coming Home Program
Statistics indicate that Americans take more than 600 million trips per year of 100 miles or more. What happens if death occurs on one of these trips? What would be involved if you or one of your loved ones died while out of town on vacation or business, visiting family, or for medical reasons? Almost everyone has a place called "home" where they want to be buried or remembered. Arranging to have one's remains returned home can be a difficult and expensive process and places extra burdens on families.
Consider the Guaranteed Travel Assurance Plan®, a service brought to you by Assist America in association with your funeral home. Guaranteed Travel Assurance provides a caring and efficient way to return one's remains if death occurs more than 100 miles from their legal residence.
Davis Funeral and Cremation Service provides a caring and efficient way to return one's remains if death occurs more than 100 miles from their legal residence.

Our Service of Remembrance and Reflection is held on the second Sunday of December. There is a reception afterwards. An invitation is extended to the community.
