Here at Nelson Family Mortuary, our funeral directors have the deepest respect for the funeral service practice. As the newest mortuary providing Orem funeral services, our professional staff provides truly unique funeral and memorial services.
We offer a number of affordable burial service options in the Orem area and surrounding communities ranging from simple burials, graveside services and traditional funeral services followed by burial. Each are tailored to meet the individual needs and expectations of you and your family. Please take a look below for information on what is included in a standard Traditional Funeral Service:
Traditional funeral services include:
Visitation: The visitation is often called a viewing or a wake. During this event, guests come to pay their respects to the deceased by viewing their casketed body and spending time with the grieving family. A visitation, wake or viewing can occur at any time before the funeral service.
Funeral Service: This event commonly takes place at the funeral home, a church, or at the graveside. It can include music, the reading of literary or religious passages, a eulogy, prayer, and the singing of hymns.
Committal Service: If the family plans to bury the deceased, this stage involves the vehicle procession to the cemetery.
Funeral Reception: Many choose to host this post-service gathering (or repast) at a reception hall. This is considered a time to share memories, laughter, and support.
