Memorial Services


Another one of the wide range of funeral services that Christy-Smith Funeral Homes offers is Memorial services. Memorial services are a funeral service without the body present and it can vary in ceremony and procedure, according to the community or the family’s religious affiliation.

The memorial ceremony can be public, followed by a private, or graveside, service with a memorial service later at the church or funeral home.

Our Sioux City funeral home has the capabilities to host a private or public memorial ceremony.

Since the body is not present at the memorial service, disposition may take place before or after the service. Because of this, the memorial ceremony can be held instead of a funeral service, or in addition to it.

There are many options for memorial services and Christy-Smith Funeral Homes has the capabilities to handle any of them.

Book of Memories™

Memorialization at its best, any family member or friend can take advantage of this free service by creating an account and a book to memorialize their loved one.


Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?
