Funeral Services

Whether burial or cremation is chosen, the typical funeral service includes:

  • Visitation or Wake—A time before the funeral for people to pay their respects, say goodbye and share condolences with family members. The casket may be open for viewing or closed. Alternately, an urn may be present.
  • Funeral Service—Held at a church or here at Draucker Funeral Home and officiated by a clergy person or a funeral director, this provides a ceremony to say farewell. Readings, music, slideshows, and memories may be shared.
  • Burial—Families may opt for a private or group graveside service.

Memorial Services 

Another option for creating a celebration of life is a memorial service. This offers the opportunity to share memories in a format of your choosing. A memorial service may take place along with burial or cremation, or the service may be scheduled for a later date following burial and cremation—it’s up to the family.

Personalization

Any service can be beautifully customized with music, pictures, readings, videos, and memories. The staff at Draucker Funeral Home will help put together personalized displays of the individual’s favorite hobbies, such as fishing, crocheting, ranching, horseback riding, favorite charities, and so on. These personal touches provide an element of warmth and intimacy.

For memorial and funeral services, families select the best photos and memories they have to include in:

  • Large photo poster of the individual
  • Register books
  • Memorial flyers
  • Memorial envelopes
  • Personalized displays

As Draucker Funeral Home has been dedicated to the Ogallala community for generations, we use local businesses to fulfill all possible printing needs.

Important Details

With any service at Draucker Funeral Home, we guide you in gathering the important details, such as biographical information for a death certificate and a list of survivors for an accurate obituary. Other items we assist with include life insurance policies, veteran status, and Social Security. We take care of these necessary administrative tasks.

Watch Services Live

Live streaming of the service allows those living far from Ogallala to experience the celebration of life as it occurs. For many years, Draucker Funeral Home has offered this option, as it is especially helpful for deployed military and distant or elderly relatives. The event can also be recorded for family to watch again.
