Final Care


When life ends for a person, family and friends who survive naturally experience grief. Persons who have dedicated their life's work to the care of the bereaved have learned that there are proven methods and experiences that are helpful to those who survive in coming to terms with the finality of death.

The staff at Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home are prepared to provide assistance and support to those concerned with final care.

Services are available from dignified simplicity to formalities of choice, whether in a church or religious institution of your choice, the chapel at Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home, or by the graveside. When cremation is requested, this preference includes opportunities for appropriate religious rites, memorial celebration, memorial reception and other choices with or without the presence of the deceased person's body.

Persons who arrange for some type of specific memorial event following a death adjust to the return of life's activities with notable ease compared to those who avoid or dismiss these rituals. This is repeatedly confirmed by professional care givers, such as Hospice workers who care for the sick and dying and are concerned with the well-being of the surviving family after death occurs.

Your questions are encouraged and invited without obligation. Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home Staff is prepared and eager to meet your needs.

Our staff practices universal health precautions with each decedent entrusted to our care. There are no additional charges to care for contagious disease.
