Orangeville Memorial Service Ideas from Dods and McNair

Orangeville memorial service ideas flowersUnlike a traditional funeral, a memorial service is a gathering where a casket is not present (although the urn with the cremated remains may be on display). A memorial service can be held weeks or even months after the death.

Orangeville Memorial Service Ideas: Venue and Setting

The memorial service can be held in a church, the funeral home, or a community hall. There is usually music, selected readings, and a eulogy. Memorial services can be further personalized as a celebration-of-life.

Orangeville Memorial Service Ideas: Content

Our experience has shown us that many of today's families want more meaning than a traditional funeral. This can be done by bringing more of the personality and lifestyle of the deceased into the arrangements. Displaying photographs or staging the event around a favorite pastime are some memorial service ideas that can be more personal and meaningful.

If a personalized memorial service suits the needs of your family, we suggest you consider the following questions:

  • What did your loved one like to do?
  • What was he or she like as an individual?
  • What was their profession and how did that shape their life?
  • Was your loved one spiritual?
  • Was he or she proud of their cultural or ethnic heritage? 

We're Here to Advise, Assist, and Guide You

Using the above five questions as our guide, we will spend the time to help create a fitting memorial service for your loved one. Please call us at 519-941-1392 to learn the details of our memorial service planning process.
