P easlee Funeral Home provides superb funeral, memorial, burial and cremation services, as well as the highest quality of related merchandise, including caskets, vaults and urns. Our funeral home is family-owned and operated, so we remain firmly rooted to the communities and families that we serve.
We understand how unique and special each funeral ceremony should be and offer our compassion and superlative service in order to ensure each family’s needs.
A facet that is continually growing and adds an indelible mark to a loved-one’s service is personalization. Personalization serves as an important component in today’s funeral and memorial services. It can be shown through music, personal items and pictures.
A funeral service is an extremely important ceremony, which assists in the remembrance and celebration of one's life. Services also help family and friends grieve and pay respect to the deceased and their family. Ceremonies are integral in celebrating a person’s achievements and also bidding that person farewell.
Many people do not know what steps to take when a death occurs. The necessary steps usually depend on the location and circumstances. It is important that you understand what can be done. We want to make sure that you have the necessary information required to make these important decisions.
What To Do If a Death Occurs:
Unanticipated death at home or elsewhere. In these situations, you should immediately contact 911; police and emergency medical personnel will then determine the appropriate steps to take. Generally, the authorities can release the remains directly to our home, so that preparations may begin. In some situations, however, the remains may need to be taken to the Medical Examiner’s office; this occurs when the cause of death may not yet be known.
If death occurs in an institution: Should the death occur at a hospital or care home (nursing/convalescent), please contact the funeral home immediately. Usually, a nurse will contact the funeral home on behalf of the family. In this case, please inform the staff of the institution that Peaslee Funeral Home is handling arrangements; a family member will generally have to complete any legal release paperwork.
Anticipated death at home: Today, more people with terminal illnesses are more comfortable at home under the care of Hospice in the final stages of their illness. In this situation, you should inform Hospice that Peaslee Funeral Home is the funeral home of your choice. Hospice will then supervise the necessary legal requirements. Often, when someone is faced with a terminal illness, the family will decide to make arrangements in advance - saving them the time and emotional decisions needed at the time of death.
Death out-of-state: If the death occurs out of state, please contact us immediately. One of our directors will then tend to all the details. We will coordinate the transfer with our associate near the place of death.
To begin planning services, one must simply talk to a director at our funeral home. Our director will guide you through the necessary steps to plan a service. With just one call, you can establish a date and time to meet either at the funeral home or the family’s home in order to plan service details.
We understand that you may have additional questions; please know that our personal and professional staff is available to serve you at all times.
