Our Services

At J. J. Duffy Funeral Home, our goal is to
provide a meaningful, unique service to
suit the needs, and desires of the families we serve.


Traditional Burial:
Funeral service arrangements that include a visitation (wake) and funeral ceremony, followed by burial at the cemetery.
Direct Burial: Funeral arrangements for burial in a cemetery without having any ceremony or visitation.

Traditional Cremation:
While very similar to traditional burial, the difference is that following the funeral; the deceased is transferred to a crematory instead of the funeral procession going to the cemetery.

Direct Cremation:
Direct cremation is selected when no ceremony or visitation is desired.

Memorial Service:
Funeral arrangements that include a service without the body present. This type of service can include a visitation, or committal service at the gravesite.

International Arrangements:
Funeral arrangements that include any portion of a Traditional Burial, except with arrangements for burial overseas. J. J. Duffy Funeral Home is an international shipping specialist.


With any funeral arrangement selection, there are many ways to personalize and memorialize the deceased. Our funeral directors, and staff, will assist in creating a uniquely personal, and meaningful funeral service. We will tailor services to meet the lifestyle and personality of the life that was so cherished. Our funeral home is able to offer one-of-a-kind personalization. We now offer online obituaries and guestbook's, for friends and family to review service information, and to leave messages of condolence to the family. Also we provide audio and visual services to make each service more unique, with a high definition digital projection system, as well as 42" Plasma Television systems, which would incorporate family pictures, personal music, and family memories into a convenient "Memorial Tribute Video". This DVD Presentation is at no additional cost to the family, and we are the first in our area to offer such a service. These innovative services, coupled with the flexibility of funeral directors and staff are only a few of the ways that our families find comfort through this personal expression.


The hallmark of J. J. Duffy Funeral Home is "Our Family Serving Your Family." The first goal of our staff is to EASE THE BURDEN, in one of the most difficult times of a person's  life, the loss of a loved one.


Our funeral home is affiliated with a local flower shop, to EASE THE BURDEN of the family. We offer a wide range of floral pieces, and services for the family to select during the first meeting, or arrangement. Our flowers are always of the highest quality, and we offer a satisfaction guarantee.
