Planning A Funeral

A funeral is a special event in which family, friends and neighbors gather to celebrate, share memories, and mourn a deceased loved one. This ceremony can take place at a funeral home, house of worship or other location, and is usually followed by burial or cremation of the deceased.

Our experienced, licensed professionals lead families through the entire funeral planning process; we will work together with you to create a unique, memorable tribute to your loved one. We can coordinate immediate-need funerals as well as pre-planned funeral arrangements.

Each funeral is unique. As we work together with you to create a meaningful tribute worthy of your loved one, some of the things we will discuss include:

  • Traditional religious service or non-religious, customized ceremony
  • Choosing burial or cremation
  • Specific wishes of your loved one and/or your family; personalized elements for the ceremony
  • Full funeral, graveside or memorial service
  • Officiant for the service
  • Obituaries

We handle all necessary paperwork and legal documentation – death certificates, burial/cremation permits, Social Security, veterans/military forms, etc. -- for you.

Pre-Planning

Just like an immediate-need funeral, a pre-planned funeral can be individualized according to the needs and wishes of the person for whom it is organized. Our experienced staff are sensitive to each family’s individual circumstances; we will work with you to make arrangements that match your wishes and budget.

Pre-Planning Funerals

Planning a funeral in advance serves several purposes: It can help relieve families of the difficulty of organizing a service after losing a loved one, during a stressful and emotional time; it gives you and your family the chance to make arrangements in accordance with your own thoughts, traditions and preferences, and within a budget you determine yourself. Pre-planning a funeral can be considered a gift of “peace of mind” toyour family members who may be uncertain about your wishes.

Pre-planning can also take place if you or your loved one are in a healthcare facility which requires such advance arrangements for financial reasons.

Just like an immediate-need funeral, a pre-planned funeral can be individualized according to the needs and wishes of the person for whom it is organized.

Cremation

The same decisions and options that apply to a traditional funeral are available to a person who wishes to be cremated, including a unique, meaningful service prior to cremation. Other options include a memorial service which can be held after cremation, at the convenience of your family; or a graveside service during which ashes are buried.

History

Licensed funeral director Robert W. Snyder and his wife, Marjorie, arrived in the quaint, picturesque small town of Riegelsville, Pennsylvania, on the banks the Delaware River, in 1951.

History

The Snyders purchased the funeral home from Robert Struthers, a former high school classmate of Marjorie. During a meeting with a salesman, Mr. Struthers mentioned that he was thinking of selling his business. The salesman’s next stop was up the river in Easton, at the Snyder Funeral Home on North Third Street, which had been owned and operated by Robert’s late father, Elmer Snyder. While chatting with Robert, the salesman let slip Mr. Struthers’ intention to sell his business. Unwilling to betray a confidence, Robert waited three days before mentioning his conversation with the salesman to Marjorie. Marjorie, having known Mr. Struthers in high school, felt confident that they could approach him about purchasing his funeral home; soon after, their happy life in Riegelsville began.

Robert continued to work as a funeral director, assisted by his daughter, Amy L. Snyder, until the day he died in 2015, at age 97. Today, Amy continues to operate the business that bears her father’s name.
