Make Yourself at Home
We are not the Snyder Funeral Society and certainly not the Snyder Funeral Parlors. We are Snyder Funeral Homes. Why do we use the word “Homes” instead of those other terms? Because we want you to feel right at home at Snyder’s. Let us serve you a cup of coffee just how you like it, with no cream and extra sugar. Feel free to drape your sweater over that chair or kick back on our couch. Our directors and staff are here to make you feel comfortable. After all, funerals were traditionally held in the family home, and we strive to replicate that warm environment in our accommodating facilities. We want to ensure that every detail of your experience meets or exceeds your expectations.
During calling hours, you and your guests will be warmly welcomed at the front door by one of our staff family who will help you settle in and answer any questions you may have. Every family has all the time they need to gather with friends and say goodbye to their loved one.
No Request is Too “Out There.” We Specialize in Unique!
Harold was a motorcycle man, so we had an all-motorcycle procession to the cemetery. Carrie loved butterflies, so we released a flight of butterflies to end her service. Jim was a trucker who took pride in his ride, so we used it to transport his casket to his final resting place. Sarah was an excellent baker, so we served slivers of her favorite dessert (brownies with fudge icing) to those who attended calling hours.
We’ve changed the names, but all of these stories are true—and we could fill this page with hundreds more. Your loved one was truly one-of-a-kind, so a cookie-cutter funeral simply won’t work. At Snyder Funeral Homes, we can arrange anything from balloon and dove releases to live bagpipes and harpists. If you have an original idea—even if it’s something we’ve never done before—we will work diligently to make it a reality.
