Please know that we are here to help and support you during this difficult time. There are decisions to be made, arrangements to be coordinated, and a lot of things to be considered for your loved one’s final farewell.

On this page, we’ve put together helpful information to guide you through this process.

Notify Proper Authorities

If your loved one passes away while under the care of a facility — such as a nursing home or a hospital — staff from the facility will contact you and notify the appropriate authorities if necessary.

If someone passes away at home, you need to call either the hospice or local emergency services before calling the funeral home. They should notify the county coroner to report the death. 

Call The Funeral Home

Once you contact us, you can expect us to pick up your loved one as soon as possible. We may then set up an appointment to go over arrangements. 

You will be asked to bring the following with you to that appointment: 

Clothing, social security number, a quality photograph, discharge papers if they are a veteran, etc. 

Remember that we are here to listen to you, help you, and guide you during this difficult and trying time.

Call us at 724--327-1100.

Meet The Funeral Director / Staff

On your first meeting with us, we will discuss the arrangements for your loved one’s burial. We will ask for vital information that is needed for legal documents such as death certificates, burial permits, etc. 

Together, we will draft information for an obituary, discuss a variety of funeral arrangement options and inquire about your loved one for us to have a better understanding of the person the services will honor.
