Welcome Local Families Serving Together

Sunrise is committed to serving your family. We strive to provide the most comfortable, caring atmosphere possible. 

Built with a mission of serving, we are the newest family-owned funeral home in northern Minnesota.

Our single level handicap-accessible facility, complete with a chapel, large stone fireplace, gathering room, and full catering kitchen is ideal for any occasion.

We take the time to plan your "Celebration of  Life" for your loved one. We work with you on every detail of your arrangement, accommodating your needs by listening and making certain every detail is complete. We care for your family as we would want our family to be cared for. 

Pre-arrangement plans are yours, and should you ever choose to change venues, we will help you transfer your pre-arrangement to any location you choose.

DVD Video Tributes

We create custom tribute videos that can be viewed during your loved one's visitation. The tribute video can be shown on our large drop-down screen in our chapel, as well as on flat screen televisions in our lobby and catering areas. We also post them to your loved one's obituary on our website; this is a great option for family and friends who are unable to attend.

To view all the options and song choices go to www.Tributeslides.com

The Benefits of Pre-arranging

The Benefits of Pre-arranging

It takes the burden off your loved ones.

It allows you to put your house in order.

You can select every aspect of your funeral now, and ensures that

it will be the funeral you want.

Guards against inflation.

Provides peace of mind - knowing you are not making anyone responsible for your last wishes.

You customize your plan and take advantage of the benefits of insurance.

You plan together, not alone.

No emotional overspending. Your wishes will be adhered to.

Life Events

Published: June 1, 2015

Major Life Events

Births, Marriage, Baptisms, Chritenings, Birthdays, Anniversaries,

Graduations, Employment, Promotions, Relocations, Retirement, Honors.

These events require considerable planning to ensure a

positive impact on the participants and others involved.

It seems absurb to think of waiting until the last minute

to plan for the significant events.

However, what about planning for a death?

Death is, of course, unpleasant to discuss

and potentially more devastating than any

other event and has the greatest impact on

the most people. Yet, we don't plan for it.

Usually, we don't handle major life events

by doing nothing and leaving the outcome

to chance.

Why do we fail to plan for what is

perhaps the most devasting life event

of all-death?
