It is our mission to help the families we serve create meaningful ways for families and friends to honor, recognize and celebrate the life that has passed; while at the same time offering as much comfort and peace as possible to those that mourn. We are committed to providing you with the information and guidance you need, options to suit your customs and budget, personalization and the highest levels of dignity and respect.

Another option for creating a celebration of life is a memorial service. This offers the opportunity to share memories in a format of your choosing. A memorial service may take place along with burial or cremation, or the service may be scheduled for a later date following burial and cremation—it’s up to the family.
Any service can be beautifully customized with music, pictures, readings, videos, and memories. The staff at Draucker Funeral Home will help put together personalized displays of the individual’s favorite hobbies, such as fishing, crocheting, ranching, horseback riding, favorite charities, and so on. These personal touches provide an element of warmth and intimacy.
