Why Plan Ahead?

Posted on 8-27-2020

Prearranging your funeral is a gift you give your loved ones. It allows them to concentrate on remembering and healing instead of making decisions at a time they will be under great stress.

It can be as simple as choosing your funeral home, service type, casket and vault (if needed). Alternatively, you may complete the arrangements by choosing the church readings and music, flowers you prefer, prayer card verse, funeral luncheon location, and supplying obituary notice information.

Reduce the Stress

If the funeral is prearranged, your family can focus on the special things they would like to do at the visitation or funeral ceremony to personalize it for you rather than worrying “Did I choose the right casket?” The pre-arrangement may also be paid for in advance to reduce financial stress at the time of death.

The prepayment is established in a funeral trust in either a bank/credit union or insurance policy.

The Directors and Support Staff Members at Proko Wall Funeral Home & Crematory are here for you; in your time of need, or whenever you have concerns or questions.

Proko-Wall Funeral Home and Crematory

Founded in late 1969 by the late Gerald Proko and Bob Walczyk, Sr., Proko-Wall Funeral Home was established on what was known as the far east side of Green Bay. The business has grown to six fully licensed funeral directors, a certified pre-planning specialist, 18 additional full and part time staff, a licensed in-house crematory and a full service pet funeral home. Proko-Wall continues to deliver the unique brand of service that families have become accustomed to since 1969, with the ownership transferring to Bob Walczyk Jr.  Long ago, Jerry and Bob Sr. realized that a funeral was much more than just a service, and were committed to helping a family keep the memories of their loved ones alive. Proko-Wall continues to help families create unique tributes to a life lived and is dedicated to walk with a family after the ‘service’ is over.
