Technology in the Funeral Industry

Technology has changed our world.   Many say it has made the world smaller because now we’re able to network with people all over the globe with the simple click of a mouse.  Others believe it has made the world a cold and impersonal place where everything is automated.

At Krause Funeral Home, computerization and the proliferation of the internet may have changed how we function, but it has not changed how we do business.  Our goal has been, and always will be, to provide you and your loved one with the highest quality after-death care and services possible.

Technology helps us do this.

We’ve created our website to provide general information in a quick and concise manner. Does your family know what to do when a death occurs?  Simply click on the corresponding tab of our webpage and you’ll find helpful tips, such as what you should bring with you to the funeral arrangement, information on veteran’s benefits and military honors, and what to do when a death occurs away from home.  Click the “Cremation Specialist” tab to find out about our on-site crematory.  Or the “Why Krause” tab to learn more about our signature services.

Perhaps you’re a guest planning to attend a visitation or funeral but can’t remember the service times.  That’s OK.  Our online obituary page can provide you with all the details you need.   While on that page you can also send private condolences, or share a personal memory with the family.   Oops, forgot to call the florist and have flowers sent?  No problem.  You can do that too by selecting the “order flowers” link located on the obituary page.  Be sure to include a personal note and your lovely plant or flower piece will be delivered directly to our facility within hours.

We also use technology in our administrative offices to print forms and keep accurate records.  In addition, we can beautifully print signs with your loved one’s name, service date(s), time(s), and service location(s) on them.  These signs are then posted in our lobby directories for the convenience of your guests.  We also create photo montage DVDs using your family’s most loved and cherished pictures.  We can even craft a personalized memorial candle with a picture of your loved one on it.

As technology continues to modernize how we do things, we’re committed to using it in innovative ways that provide greater information, create more personalization, and help us to serve your family better.

  1. When I die, I want to be cremated. It is cool to see how technology has changed the funeral industry. Perhaps there will be new methods when I am to that age.

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Caden! We agree many of the advancements have been good for the families we serve.
