We know that in life, the things that matter most are the little things. The small details that go into planning a suitable funeral or memorial are what we excel at. A funeral or memorial service should be one of THE most professional and dignified events in a families experiences. That’s why we feel comfortable in saying; ask any family that we have served for a recommendation.
To honor the life of a loved one, many families like to experience the beauty and freedom of doves in flight as they are released as part of the graveside service.
Storke Funeral Home has three locations that offer traditional and non-traditional services and facilities. Two of our funeral homes (Bowling Green and King George) have formal chapels with wooden pews that offer families a service that has the feel of something you would experience in the sanctuary of a church.
Our Colonial Beach location has been completely remodeled to turn this once traditional funeral chapel into a more flexible “event” space.
If a family desires, we can arrange a comfortable setting with padded banquet chairs and tables for a catered meal to accommodate over two hundred.
Storke Funeral Home, in keeping with a proud heritage of nearly a century, is the only funeral home in the area that offers funerals the old-fashioned way. Our families have the option of having an authentic horse-drawn hearse procession, (instead of a modern funeral coach). In this fast-paced world, it is often comforting to return to a quieter time and an era when people paused and truly celebrated an individual’s life.
Usually during the second week of December, Storke Funeral Home presents its annual Holiday Remembrance Illumination. The evening event is dedicated to the family members that have passed away during the year and since our last illumination.
The holiday season can be an especially difficult time after the death of a loved one. Storke Funeral Home created this Remembrance Illumination as a silent memorial to all families served by Storke Funeral Home.
Storke Funeral Home introduces a new program, unique to the funeral industry, called “Floral Legacy”. With the family’s permission, the funeral home staff will transport any number of floral arrangements, designated by the family, back to the funeral home at the conclusion of the funeral.
The next day, a group of volunteers will “take apart” the funeral baskets, grouping the different types of flowers, greenery and other foliage and rearranging them in attractive vases and containers to be distributed to local nursing homes, hospitals or elderly shut-ins. What a fitting tribute to your loved one – to know that others will benefit and be blessed with this unique “gift” …… that keeps giving.
