Cremation Center

Fratzke & Jensen Funeral Homes is pleased to announce the opening of the Heritage Cremation Center in Storm Lake. As cremation has become a more commonplace choice in our area, we saw the need for a local cremation center.

This center will provide assurance for our families who select cremation that their loved ones will never leave the care and keeping of the funeral professionals they have come to know and trust. In addition to this peace of mind, please know that when you choose cremation, we will assist you in creating a memorial service that will honor and celebrate the life of your loved ones in the same caring manner as we do for our families who choose more traditional funeral and burial options.

It is for these reasons that Fratzke & Jensen Funeral Homes has partnered in ownership of this new facility.

We want you and your family to know the facts and be comfortable with the subject of cremation if you are interested in this alternative. As with any service we provide, there are many choices to make, as well as options available for personalization. To learn what is available, simply call us. We’ll provide straight answers to all your questions. We pledge to you our continued care as funeral professionals to provide dignified, compassionate services to you and your family at all times.

As always, our emphasis is on you. We’re here to help at a time when many people don’t know what to do.


With Cremation, you have all the choices of traditional burial

• Visitation or Gathering

 A formal or informal gathering for friends at the funeral home or another location allows everyone to share their condolences without disturbing the family’s privacy at home.

• Funeral or Memorial Service

A service honoring the deceased person can be held at a funeral home or place of worship before of after cremation. Musical selections and special speakers are important choices in planning.

• Burial, Permanent Possession, Columbarium Urn Niche Placement or Scattering

While some families keep the remains, most choosing cremation decide to bury them. Many hold a public or private graveside service where others can bid their final farewells. If you select columbarium niche, you may desire a service at the niche. You can also add a service if scattering the remains.


Urn Choices

You will need an urn for the cremated remains. Which one you choose may depend on the personality of the person who has died, as well as on the urn’s style, color, cost, and workmanship. We offer you more than 35 urns with distinctive personalities.
