The Many Ways We Create Meaningful Cremation Services

Fifty years ago, only a tiny fraction of Americans – 3.6% – chose cremation. Now, that number hovers right around 50% and is increasing rapidly every year. Staab Funeral Homes has been serving Sherman and Springfield families for nearly 100 years, and our staff has certainly noticed more families choosing cremation over that time.

We’ve also noticed that even though cremation is more popular than ever, it’s common for people to still have questions about it. Whether your family is in Springfield or Sherman, we have experienced teams who are ready to inform you about your many cremation memorialization options with Staab Funeral Homes.

One of the main concerns we hear – and really a major misconception – is that when you choose cremation, you can’t have a service. Families want to tell the story of their loved one’s life, and pay tribute in a meaningful way. The good news is that the Staab Funeral Homes team provides many avenues to do so!

As with traditional burials, we offer a family choosing cremation a variety of choices to celebrate their loved one. We’re here to help you create any or all of the following:

  • A visitation, reception, service, catered gathering, or graveside burial.
  • Vaults, caskets, and urns that bear emblems and engravings reflecting religious affiliation, special interests, and/or military or civic service.
  • Personalized memorials that highlight your loved one’s interests, hobbies, accomplishments, personality, as well as faith and cultural traditions.
  • Elements such as flowers, music, readings, and even a viewing.

Whether you choose traditional burial or cremation, our professional team is here to explain every detail and describe how a final farewell can be personalized to fit your needs. Simple details and personal touches make for a deeply meaningful memorial service families will never forget. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us today to learn more.
