Process


The first step after a death is to have it pronounced by an appropriate official- attending physician, approved hospice nurse or medical examiner.  If your loved one dies in a hospital, nursing home or hospice facility, this will be done on site.  If he/she dies at home or unattended and is not enrolled in a hospice program, you must call the police. 

It is important to locate the deceased's letter of instructions or funeral pre-arrangements if possible.

At Wesche Funeral Home, we are available 24 hrs a day/ 7 days a week.  Whether your loved one has a  pre-arranged  funeral service with us or not, you can call on us.  We will take your loved one into our care immediately or soon thereafter if family members or friends need a period of time to say goodbye.  

Our staff will be on hand to meet with you to discuss the type of arrangements that fit your requirements and budget.

-Full name

Cremation

Many people chose cremation over traditional burial for any number of reasons.  And we understand those choices.  We offer many cremation options from very basic through traditional viewing with cremation following.
 
Cremation is an alternative to burial and doesn’t preclude a traditional funeral service.


Monuments

We provide referrals to pre-screened, qualified, and competent outside monument suppliers.

Selection of Caskets, Urns & Burial Vaults

A selection of caskets, urns and vaults are available for your inspection, offering you options that are both affordable and appropriate.


Bereavement Support

Wesche Funeral Home provides families with a wide-range of bereavement support and resources tailored to fit their individual needs.
 
We believe children should participate in the grieving process and will be happy to guide you as yours are included in the remembrance of their loved one.
