Preplanning and Community Outreach

Butherus, Maser & Love Funeral Home offers pre-planning of funeral arrangements - a good way to assure the funeral arrangements you prefer are carried out without your family having to make all the decisions. It's not difficult to do, and there's no "magic" age at which you should plan your funeral.

If you are beginning to make plans for a loved one and death is imminent, here are two helpful forms and checklists.  Much of the information requested on these forms will be needed in order to obtain a death certificate.   If death has occurred, please call 402 488-0934 immediately.  One of our five funeral directors is on call 24 hours a day and will walk you through the steps needed at this difficult time.

Today, many people are making their own plans…and choosing to pre-fund the program. There are several ways to pre-fund a funeral.

Butherus, Maser & Love offers a bank master trust where money is deposited in local bank and held in the depositor's name and social security number until time of need...
