Attend Services

Often there is more than one gathering following a death and you may choose to attend all or one depending on your relationship with the family of the deceased. Duksa Family Funeral Homes lists time, dates and directions in their online obituaries and can answer any questions you may have on the appropriateness of attendance.

Some additional advice to consider when attending a funeral service:

  • Sign register book whether attending the visitation or the funeral. Sign legibly and with your affiliation, if appropriate.
  • Sit in the appropriate spot at the funeral. The first several rows are usually reserved for immediate family.
  • Greet the family members either on arrival or departure. Offer a hug or shake hands, depending on your relationship.

Follow parking protocol when attending the funeral. If the graveside service follows the funeral, our staff will help guide cars into a line and add a funeral procession flag to your car. You will also be asked to keep your lights on during the processional.
