The funeral planning team holds the responsibility for caring for families in their time of grief while always honoring the deceased dignity. Each personalized funeral plan encompasses family traditions and culture while always considering financial preferences.
Cress Funeral & Cremation Service is the funeral home to call whether you want a themed gathering or direct cremation. The beautiful reception areas and quality catering services make it a life celebration to remember. Or, you can plan a simple memorial service if that is a better solution for your family preferences. You will find that our team has experience with traditional funerals, memorial ceremonies, graveside services, and everything in between. We will walk you through all available services, including a variety of funeral products like caskets, urns, memorials, and vaults.
