Funeral & Memorial Services

In planning a funeral, there are many decisions to make. Consigli Ruggerio Funeral Home provides information to help you make those decisions and hopefully answer more questions you may have surrounding the service, memorialization, and the final resting place.

Gathering with the body present, is called a funeral service. If the body is not present the gathering is called a memorial service. Depending upon your choice of either burial, cremation or placement of the deceased in an above-ground vault, you can have either a memorial service or a funeral service. Commonly there is a period of visitation at the funeral home, during which the casket may be open or closed, according to the survivors' requests.

We at Consigli Ruggerio Funeral Home are here to guide you through the decision making process. Those decisions include choosing a casket, a vault and or an urn and choosing the type of service. Also, we will help you to decide the process that people can use to express their sympathy, such as flowers or donations to the deceased's favorite charities.
