Char’s journey as a celebrant and funeral director began with the loss of her father and dear friend Margaret. Inspired by the concept of home funerals, Char became a certified celebrant and subsequently earned a degree in mortuary science. She helped to found the National Home Funeral Alliance, a non-profit which educates families about caring for their own loved one after death.
Our Larch Plan includes cremation with witnessed placement at our cremation facility. This practice allows you to be with your loved one during their time of transformation and perform a variety of rituals on site as they embark on their journey. Our funeral home staff will help you choose a casket for the cremation as well as an urn to hold your loved one's ashes.
The Tribute Center
Our Tribute Center is a peaceful space for family and friends to gather. Our space can host intimate final goodbye viewings,public visitations with refreshments and seating, memorial and funeral services, and gatherings where family can bathe and dress their loved one as a final act of love.
Request an Appointment
Our staff works hand-in-hand with you to set up arrangements for your loved one. Whether a death has occurred or you are interested in pre-planning, we have resources to help you make all the necessary decisions.
Arrange a cremation online
While making arrangements for a cremation would be ideal in person at our office, we understand circumstances may not allow for a personal meeting to occur. We have made this online form available to you, as a way for us to support you during this stressful time and make the process of handling arrangements as easy as possible.
Not sure where to start?
What to do after a death depends on the circumstances— whether it was expected or unexpected, where the death occurred, and your family’s needs and wishes. We can help you figure out what you need to do next.
