We would like to announce that as of February 15, 2012 we will be Root Funeral Homes (formerly Pearson-Wood-Willman Funeral Homes) serving northeast Iowa.. We feel this will better reflect the scope of services we offer as well as indicate our commitment to the area we serve. Since becoming a part of the communities we have been diligent in making improvements to our facilities as well as bringing enhanced ideas and services to the families we are honored to serve.
At Root Funeral Homes, we work hard to meet the needs of each family we serve with dignity and compassion. We provide attention to detail both before and after the funeral. Our goal is to offer extraordinary service at a fair price.
We welcome and appreciate any questions that you might have about the services we offer. Please feel free to call us or through our online contact us form.
Root Funeral Homes (formerly Pearson-Wood-Willman Funeral Homes) is an independent, locally-owned funeral home with chapels in Onawa and Rodney, Iowa.
On October 1, 2008 Travis and Samantha Root purchased the funeral homes and returned them to local ownership. They operate the funeral homes with the ideals Russell Pearson, Donald Wood and Kenneth Willman held valuable.
Root Funeral Homes is building a reputation on doing the extra things that families appreciate. As caring and concerned professionals, we will support you with the knowledge, attention and resources that help you achieve peaceful closure.
We are privileged to serve our communities in celebrating their loved ones with treasured memories. Our greatest reward lies in knowing that you have observed a special life for what it was and always will be.
Benefits Of Pre-Planning
Planning a funeral, especially at the time of need, can be an emotional and daunting task. More than 100 decisions must be made in funeral planning, sometimes in just a matter of hours following the death of a loved one. To ease the burden on family and to ensure final wishes are honored, the best thing to do is plan ahead and make these decisions in a calm, clear setting. Pre-arranging a funeral is something you do not only do for yourself, but for the people you love more than anything else in the world.
Although not required when making pre-arrangements, most people choose to pre-pay their funeral in advance. This will guarantee the price of the funeral and merchandise selected.
Pre-funding is especially important if you or a loved one is facing Medicaid assistance to pay for long-term health care. Monies set aside for funeral expenses can be certified as irrevocable and therefore shielded from Medicaid spend-down guidelines.
We Can Transfer Arrangements To Our Funeral Home
The state of Iowa allows for your pre-funded funeral arrangements to be transferred at any time to the funeral home of your choosing. We encourage anyone that is considering this type of change to be proactive and not delay. Simply call us, usually in a few minutes and the signing of a few simple forms, the task is done.
