Our Family Serving Yours
The staff at Sossoman Funeral Home is dedicated to providing the families we serve with compassion, care, and comfort. Our first responsibility is to provide you with complete knowledge about the various funeral service options available to you and the corresponding prices of those services. At the beginning of every consultation, you will be provided a general price list which itemizes each service. This price list also describes in detail the services provided for Direct Cremation, Direct Burial, the Golden Rule service, and anatomical donation.
Our Funeral Home
The interior of the funeral home has a homelike atmosphere, and is decorated with antiques and other memorabilia that were given to the Sossoman Family by families they had served in the past.. It also showcases many paintings by the late Sara Todderud, sister to J.C. Sossoman. The Colonial Chapel of Sossoman Funeral Home and the receiving rooms are open to families for their use and convenience in services and visitations. Our chapel has both a piano and an organ; a music system that accommodates both CDís and tapes, and a PA system. There is ample parking with handicapped accessible spaces. Our grounds are well-maintained with beautiful flowers and landscaping.
Caskets, Vaults, and Grave Liners
Sossoman Funeral Home offers a wide selection of caskets which include wood, steel, stainless steel, and copper. Our wood caskets are shown in poplar, pine, ash, pecan, maple, oak, and cherry. The rolled steel caskets are measured in gauges. Many of our steel caskets are manufactured with a rubber gasket that offers protection from outside elements. In addition to the caskets in our show room, we also have catalogs from which to choose other styles.
We have a presentation of burial vaults and concrete liners available for your selection. Vaults are offered in concrete, galvanized steel, and steel. The concrete burial vaults have inner linings of strentex, stainless steel, copper, or bronze which repel water and moisture. A grave liner is strictly manufactured of concrete, has no lining, and does not offer protection from outside elements. Poly-vaults and poly-liners are new additions to our line of outer burial containers. They are manufactured of molded space-age polyethylene, will hold any standard size casket, and also repel water and moisture. Vaults and grave liners are only required if cemetery regulations stipulate their use. All three types of outer burial containers will meet cemetery requirements.
If a family prefers cremation, there are many options available for selection. Families can hold a Traditional service with the body present for visitation and the service with cremation to follow. They can also choose a Memorial service, a Graveside Cremation service, or Direct Cremation. Sossoman Funeral Home has a large selection of urns as well as urn vaults. Our staff is well-qualified to answer any questions about cremation.
We are happy to assist families with pre-planning funeral arrangements. Sossoman Funeral Home offers families an Insurance Account set up through Funeral Director's Life Insurance Company. If a family would like only to put their wishes in writing, and not set up a preneed account, we will be glad to help with those pre-arrangements also. Please call the funeral home to set up a consultation time.
