Although they are a time of mourning, funerals give surviving family and friends the chance to recognize the death of a loved one, support one another, and share thoughts, feelings, and memories of the deceased. Funerals are the first step in the healing process. The ritual of attending a funeral service provides many benefits including:
Providing a social support system for the bereaved
Helping the bereaved understand death is final and part of life
Integrating the bereaved back into the community
Easing the transition to a new life after the death of a loved one
Providing a safe haven for embracing and expressing pain
Reaffirming one's relationship with the person who died
Providing a time to say good-bye.
It is possible to have a full funeral service even for those choosing cremation. The importance of the ritual is in providing a social gathering to help the bereaved begin the healing process.
Arranging a funeral service that meets your individual, family, and financial needs is our primary goal. We encourage you to discuss your service options openly with us including any funeral service fees.
For your convenience, we accept the following methods of payment:
As caregivers and administrators, funeral directors arrange for the transportation of the deceased, complete all necessary paperwork, and implement decisions made by the family for the funeral and final disposition of the deceased. Assisting the bereaved in coping with death through listening, advising, and giving support is at the heart of the services offered by funeral directors. The funeral directors at Pederson-Volker hold bachelor's degrees in mortuary science and are licensed by the State of Wisconsin.
At Pederson-Volker Funeral Chapel & Cremation Services, our funeral directors are trained to answer questions about grief, recognize when a person is having difficulty coping, and recommend sources of professional help. Our Chippewa Falls funeral directors can assist in linking survivors with grief support groups in the Chippewa Valley area.
Because a funeral is such a personal experience, every family can personalize a funeral to commemorate their loved one. Funeral services are often influenced by religious and cultural traditions, and personal preferences.
Whether you desire an elaborate or simple, public or private, religious or secular, our Chippewa Falls funeral chapel is here to assist you. You can also choose to have the body present at the funeral, to hold a viewing or visitation, and to have the remains buried or cremated.
What you can expect when coming to a visitation or service at Pederson-Volker:
We will have a separate entrance and exit. The flow will be one-way.
Hand sanitizer will be visible and available.
The bathrooms will be sanitized often.
If you feel safer at home, please send a card to the funeral home and we will make sure the family receives it.
If the family chooses the service to be viewed from our website, simply go to the individual’s obituary and scroll down the page for the video.
If you have concerns or questions, please call us at 715-723-4649 & we will be happy to accommodate you. And as always, our staff will be on hand to direct you.
