Our most basic cremation option. It saves the family monies by allowing them to have an active role in arranging their loved one’s direct cremation, saving them the in-person arrangement fee. The family simply notifies Schilling Funeral Home & Cremation of the death, downloads the arrangement documents and has the paperwork notarized.
This cremation option is for the family who chooses to meet together with our staff to complete the necessary paperwork, and to explore the many options available to celebrate a loved one’s life. This is done in person at our office Monday thru Friday, 9AM-4PM.
This in-person arranged direct cremation option allows for a one time private viewing by immediate family. Minimal preparation of the deceased and viewing room access for 30 minutes during business hours of M-F 9AM- 4PM are included.
*Minimal preparation includes: Setting of features, disinfecting, dressing, and respectful placement for viewing.
*Option excludes: Trauma cases, Autopsied cases, or advanced decomposed status, unless embalming is chosen.
This in-person direct cremation option includes a celebration of life, conducted at Schilling Funeral Home & Cremation or at Church. This package includes a 1 hour public visitation prior to the celebration of life.
Please select the town where the decedent passed away, even if it differs from their residence.
For over 30 years the Schilling Funeral Home has provided the Sauk Valley area with professional and compassionate funeral services.
