How Much Does a Funeral Cost?
That’s a question we help answer every day. You might be surprised to learn that you are in control of costs more than we are.

Understanding your choices is how to save money and get the best value.

Getting the Best Price for Your Family
Here are the four factors:
Merchandise and Options
This is controlled by you. Caskets and urns come in a wide range of styles and prices. There are other items like register books, thank you cards, additional vehicles, special facility use and more. Embalming may or may not be needed. Everyone has different preferences and yours determine these costs.
These are usually referred to as “cash advance” items. That is because we will pay these individually for you so that you have one simplified bill. These costs are not ours and are determined by what these entities charge and your preferences. These would include newspaper obituaries, flowers, honorariums for pastors, & death certificates.
How fair the price of a funeral feels to you is fully determined by you. Here is what to consider. Funeral service is an experience, not a commodity. Who you choose to guide you will define the experience you receive. We are extremely helpful and experienced. Some other providers are less so. Our facilities offer comfort and our care center is onsite. Many of your other choices cannot say the same.
Families choose Johnson Funeral Home because we offer the right combination of price and value. You can ask us questions and see your choices without committing yourself to our services.
