In many ways, a company’s website is a modern-day storefront, offering visitors a first impression about what they do and who they are. This is certainly the case here at Walker Funeral Homes & Crematory, as our website tells our family’s story and the history of the funeral home, provides information on the funeral and cremation services we offer, features online obituaries, and so much more. We’re here to help you, our friends and neighbors in Oak Harbor, Maumee, and Genoa when you need us most, and our website reflects just how important you are to us.
Maybe you found us online when you searched for a funeral home in the area. Our staff is aware that most online visitors spend 15 seconds on a website looking for the content they need. If they don’t find it, they’ll often move on to other websites. This is why we’ve made our site easy to navigate, and chock full of the kind of practical information you want and need.
Here’s an example: Back in the day, people would spend time every day leafing through the obituary section of the local newspaper. Maybe you or someone you know still does this! On our website, you can simply scroll through our obituary page to view photos and read obituaries. While there, you can also find funeral service information and driving directions, sign the online register book, leave a condolence, and even order flowers for the family.
If you’re visiting our site to view an obituary, you might consider clicking over to our aftercare page for resources to help deal with loss. As we always say, our team at Walker is here for the families we serve long after the funeral is over. We can connect you with free support groups, and we also have online, interactive grief support if you need help right away.
Perhaps this information will prompt questions about preplanning your own arrangements. Our site offers practical tips about the benefits of preplanning, along with a preplanning checklist that will help you get organized. We’ve gathered all the information needed to make things as easy as possible for you or perhaps for your aging parent. You can even start the preplanning process from the comfort of home by filling out our online form.
While you’re thinking about your own arrangements, take a few minutes to read about your options. Have you decided whether you would prefer a traditional burial or cremation? Maybe you’re unsure about what each involves. Do you have an opinion about your final resting place? Most people do, but they don’t take the time to put their preferences in writing. Our website outlines all of the details you need in a gentle and thoughtful way.
While browsing, stop by and meet our staff, then take a photo tour of our other three facilities in Rossford, Port Clinton, and Toledo. Don’t forget to visit our blog, which provides valuable information on the top three myths about preplanning, creating meaningful receptions, ideas for reconnecting with life after a loss, and many other pertinent topics. Our Facebook page is also a terrific resource and a way to further connect with our community; a virtual gathering place if you will.
Whether you’re in need of our services, are interested in learning about preplanning, or could use support during a difficult time in life, we’re available online and in person. You can reach out to us anytime by phone, or stop by one of our six locations. We’ve been here for families since 1933 and will continue to serve our community in every way possible.
