Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home. Some families wonder why we are needed at the memorial service at church.  Let us explain our value.  At the service, you should be focused on the family, friends, and grieving your loved one, not hosting an event.  Our funeral directors collect memorial items and photos to present at the service.  We receive and photograph the flowers as they arrive so that you have a record who sent each arrangement.  We collect donations, and provide equipment such as flower stands and memorial tables.  Our staff also reserves seating for family and set up displays, and give directions to guests.  We manage parking and reserve parking for family.  Our staff is positioned near the entrance to greet guests and encourage them to sign the guest book and oversee the flow of the service.  When it comes to honoring your loved one, leave it to the experts to make sure everything is perfect.  At Stark Memorial Funeral Home and Cremations Services, we think of every detail so you don't have to.

A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
