It is difficult to accept the loss of a loved one and the emotional adjustment is complex. The funeral ceremony is the beginning of the healing process. We at the Parzynski Funeral Home & Cremations will help you arrange a funeral that is a tribute to a life that was lived. We provide funeral arrangements and services to persons of all faiths. Religious beliefs are important to many individuals and families, and we are honored to serve families of all denominations and beliefs.
Based upon the family’s preferences and requests, we contact clergy, arrange the date and time of the service or Funeral Mass, assist with the selection of music and readings, print a program for the service, and make any other arrangements as requested. Whether the service takes place at the funeral home, your place of worship, the cemetery, the family home or other location, we attend to all the details.
We will help your family to arrange a service that is a fitting tribute to the life of your loved one and the beliefs that he or she held dear.
The Parzynski Funeral Home offers a comprehensive array of services to meet your family’s needs including preplanning assistance, traditional funeral services, cremation services, out-of-town arrangements, bereavement support, and other assistance.
We know that a funeral home with deep roots in the community, and deep relationships with local family and friends, can best help those who are grieving. That is why we are still family owned and operated, still local, and still dedicated to the community. We will make that extra effort to fulfill your family’s commemorative needs, listen carefully to your concerns and desires, helping you to plan a service that truly honors the life of your loved one. We are familiar with the funeral traditions of all ethnic groups and faiths, assuring families that all arrangements will be perfectly suitable and appropriate to every religious belief and tradition.
This type of service is the one chosen by most families. The viewing, whether public or private, gives the family members an opportunity to express their grief through reality. The viewing is not for the person who died, but for those of us left behind to grieve.
For this type of service, the casket is normally open for the viewing, with the time of the viewing being chosen by your family. Following the viewing, a funeral service is held either at our facility or at your place of worship. A procession to the cemetery follows, where a brief committal service is held, either at the gravesite or cemetery chapel.
As more people chose cremation as their preferred type of disposition, they are also choosing to have a traditional viewing followed by a service. This service is the same as the Traditional Service with Viewing and Burial, except that after the service the deceased is cremated. Then at a later date the cremated remains, if desired, is buried or entombed. The viewing and/or service can either be public or private.
This type of service is commonly referred to as Direct Burial. For this type of service, there is no viewing. The family can chose to have the person buried or entombed without a service, or they can choose to have a service either at our facility or their place of worship, followed by the burial or entombment. Another option is to have a service at the gravesite or mausoleum.
This service is commonly referred to as Direct Cremation. Following death, the person is removed from the place of death and held until all legal requirements are meet by the funeral home, then cremated. In Pennsylvania, this time period is a minimum of 24 hours. There is no viewing. A memorial service can be held for family and friends at a later date, and can be held either at our facility, your place of worship, or cemetery.
We are deeply committed to helping families create the most personal type of funeral service – one that is a true reflection of the life that has been lived. We do this by offering a complete selection of personalization options such as memory tables, tribute videos, displays of cherished possessions, personal music choices, and other personalized forms of tribute. These special touches assure that the story of your loved one’s life will be told in a dignified, memorable way.
