Special Services

For many years, families have been entrusting Retz Funeral Home & Crematory with the final care of their loved ones. During that time, we have fulfilled the funeral service wishes of hundreds of families from all faiths, age groups and economic situations. Many families have asked us to provide their loved one with special services, and in all the years, we’ve never failed to make any and all arrangements necessary to create your perfect service. Please don’t hesitate to ask us about providing any special services for your loved one – it is our privilege and purpose to be of service to you. When it comes to providing unique services for you and your family, “no” is simply not in our vocabulary.

  • Catered wakes
