How We Can Help You

 

Your Trusted Friend

 

    In a time of need, you need trusted friends. For over 100 years, families have consistently chosen Johnson-Overturf Funeral Homes to be that trusted friend to take care of your loved ones. We will assist your family in planning a funeral and choosing the options that suit your families needs and your loved ones wishes. We are able to assist you in holding services in a wide variety of areas. From our chapel, to your church or at the cemetery.  We are able to prepare a meaningful service to honor your loved one. We will listen to your family and help to arrange a celebration of your loved one's life through whatever means you choose.

In addition to funeral services, our staff also provides the following services:

 

Pre-Planning
 

There are many advantages to planning a funeral ahead of time. By pre-planning a funeral, difficult decisions will not have to be made during a time of grieving and stress. You will be able to visit a potential resting site and have time to decide on and compare options. Thought can be made to whether or not cremation is an option you may want to choose. Your wishes can be put into writing to give your family direction when the time for the funeral comes. Our staff will help you plan so that your family can carry out your wishes.

For more information on pre-planning please fill out our online pre-planning form.

 

Online Memorials

 

We can set up an online memorial with a guest book for your loved one. Our online memorials provide information for guests about the funeral services, provide a tribute to your loved one, and allow guests to leave kind remarks that will be posted on the memorial page. The family can provide photos to create a photo gallery for their loved one. By providing information to guests about services, our online memorials help lessen the load on a family during a difficult time. The memorials also serve to pay tribute to your family's loved one.

 

Obituaries

 

We will prepare, or assist you in preparing, an obituary to be published in selected publications and on our website for your loved one.

 

Veteran's Benefits

 

We will help you secure your potential veterans benefits, such as burial flags, government markers, memorial certificate and a burial plot as well as arranging for military honors at the services. 

 

For more information on our Veteran's Funeral Plan.

 

Social Security

 

We will notify the Social Security Administration of the death.   We will also provide you with contact information for any benefits that might be available from social security.

 

Death Certificates

 

We will obtain the requested number of certified copies of the death certificate which are important for insurance purposes as well as a host of other administrative items that will need to be addressed.

 

After Care

 

Sometimes the loss of a loved one can be especially painful. We understand that the grieving process does not end with the funeral. We are here not only to help arrange the funeral, but to help families cope with the loss of their loved one. There are a wide variety of grief resources available and we will help to point you in the right direction and begin the healing process.
