Services. Most families in our area prefer what has become
known as a "traditional service". This usually involves having
a visitation at the funeral home and a ceremony at the church or funeral
home. There are many variations of this type service. For example, some
might prefer the visitation and ceremony all in one day. Others might
prefer to have a visitation and a simple gravesite ceremony; while others
may prefer to have a ceremony without any visitation. Remember, we are
here to provide guidance for the type service you prefer.
Services. If your choice should be for cremation, we will be
glad to assist you. Our cremation services are unique in that a licensed
funeral director directly oversees the entire process. This comforting
service actually costs no more and provides complete peace of mind for
the family that has chosen cremation. There are many alternatives for
those preferring cremation. Some prefer to have a visitation, allowing
family and friends an opportunity to express their support, their grief,
their love, and their condolences. Whether, or not, there is a visitation,
we recommend some type of a "celebration of life" or memorial
service which can be held before or after the cremation. The memorial
service can be religious or non-religious, at the funeral home, at the
gravesite, at the church or other place of worship, at the family farm
or just about anywhere that would be meaningful for the family. Others
might prefer a direct cremation without any type of visitation or memorial.
We invite you to stop in and speak with one of our experienced owners
about the type of service that would be best for you.
Caskets, Urns, Burial vaults and Monuments. We guarantee that regardless of the economic situation, we will provide a price selection for every family. We have a local warehouse, with immediate delivery, thus assuring that we have as large a selection as is possible. We offer a complete line of caskets, which can be made of bronze, copper, stainless steel, steel, solid hardwoods or wood products. We offer a complete line of cremation urns made of wood, metal, marble, and man-made materials. These range in price assuring the affordability for every family. We provide burial vaults made of reinforced concrete with various types of liners, as well as, steel, stainless steel and copper vaults. There are no legal requirements that you purchase a burial vault. However, many cemeteries require that if you do not use a vault, you must use a grave liner. These are also provided by Vaughan Funeral Home. We can also assist you with your monument or marker purchase, or in the event you already have the monument, we can arrange for the engraving of the death date.
Services. Since we are locally owned, we care about our community
and the families that we serve. That is why we are available for guidance
before the funeral, at the funeral providing unmatched professional service,
and yes, even after the service, we are there for your family. We are
glad to provide advice and assistance to those who need help with advance
planning, estate planning or with the many decisions involved in probate
and closing estates. We will be glad to recommend an attorney if you should
require one. We will also provide you with a list of professional counselors,
should you feel the need. We can also offer help for those who cannot
afford the services of a professional psychologist. We can assist you
with applying for social security and veterans benefits. One of the Vaughan
professionals will be glad to drive you to the local office and, if you
wish, stay by your side for guidance and comfort. There is no charge for
any of the post funeral services that we provide.
One of the kindest things one can do for their family is to have the arrangements
made in advance. Prearrangement is an important step in getting your affairs
in order. It can be just as important as a will. It is especially important
should you experience an extended nursing home stay and/or apply for financial
assistance. Preplanning can be as simple or as extensive as you care to
make it. The very basic plan includes simply listing biographical information
and preferences as to the type of service and merchandise. This record
is kept in our confidential files until the time of need. There is absolutely
no charge for this service. Many choose to take the next step and provide
the funding. With a Vaughan plan, you can set aside funds for your funeral,
so survivors aren't faced with financial decisions. Convenient monthly
payments or one lump sum payment can be arranged.
Pet Services. We at Vaughan's understand from our own personal experiences that the death of a pet can be extremely painful and traumatic. Those who have never experienced the love and companionship of a pet could never understand the loss of this special family member. We are glad to offer our professional assistance for your pet. We will transport your pet from your home or from the veterinarian's office. We can make arrangements with one of the local pet cemeteries, if necessary. If you should prefer cremation for your pet, we will coordinate arrangements with the crematory at the Parkersburg Humane Society. We will be glad to transport your pet to the crematory and later pick up the cremated remains. We offer a selection of pet caskets, urns and grave markers.
