Meet Our Staff

Our dedicated staff are here to provide support, compassion, and information to help you through your journey of grief and the celebration of your loved one’s life.

Funeral Services

There is no single proper funeral service. It is a time for human sharing in its deepest sense. You and the ones you love are at the very center of the process, and the choices you make will determine its significance for you. It is the goal of Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home to help people complete the relationship with the one who has died and to provide a climate that encourages each person to give and receive emotional support. During the funeral service, family and friends have the opportunity to relate to each other on the deepest levels and find mutual strength in their grief.

Complete Funeral Service

Traditional funeral services consist of a public or private viewing and visitation, a funeral service held in a church, the funeral home, or some other appropriate location, and either earth burial or above ground entombment of the casketed remains. Many cemeteries require that the casket be placed in an outer container or vault to support the earth-load and maintain the topography of the cemetery grounds.


Graveside Service

Families may also choose to hold a graveside service with a burial. Typically, this service would follow a time of visitation at the funeral home. The casketed remains would then be transferred to the cemetery where a graveside ceremony could take place followed by the burial. When contemplating this type of service one should consider the vagaries and severity of weather which can often render a graveside service physically uncomfortable for attendees.


Complete Cremation Service

Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home is the only funeral home in the area that offers on-site cremation services. Our private, on-site cremation center ensures the body of the deceased never leaves our care. This added security and dignity offers our families peace of mind during a very difficult time. Learn more about our cremation services.


Personalized Services

At Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home, we encourage families to create very personalized services. It is important to acknowledge that life has been lived and to offer to the community a way in which to celebrate that life. By offering services and memorialization features that are personal and special, a unique life can be remembered and honored in an individualized way that is comforting to the family and friends.
