Celebration of Life

A celebration of life is a unique and personal ceremony to honour the life of the deceased either at your church, our chapel, or one of several other locations. It is similar in many ways to the traditional service except that the body of the deceased is not present. It is important to note that if any family members or friends wish to view or say goodbye to the deceased, this can be arranged before the cremation takes place. At Trinity Funeral Home we encourage every family to create a personalized funeral service.

A celebration of life can be followed with fellowship and refreshments at our reception facility, graveside committal service, and inurnment either below ground (Earth Burial), above ground (Entombment in a Mausoleum), scattering the cremated remains, or you may simply want to take the urn home.

  • Arrangement conference at our funeral home
