We Promise. . .To Respect Your Budget.
Our respect for your budget is demonstrated in three important ways: transparency, control, and a low total price.
- Transparency: Tippecanoe Funeral & Cremation Services is the only local funeral home that has General Price List and all packages available on its website.
- Control: At Tippecanoe, you are in complete control of your budget and will never pay for something you do not want or need. We always make a point of keeping you fully informed of the cost of items you select when making arrangements. In the event you wish to spend more than is immediately available, Tippecanoe makes a financial partner available that will provide up to $10,000 to families that qualify.
- Lower Total Price: In addition to the funeral or cremation, you will need to budget for merchandise such as a casket or urn, as well as a final resting place such as a grave, niche or mausoleum space.
Tippecanoe Funeral & Cremation Services is located on the same property as the cemetery. This allows us tremendous flexibility in providing everything together in one convenient place at a lower cost than almost anyone else. At Tippecanoe, we strive to provide you with the lowest possible total price.
We Promise…To Help You Honor the Memories
of Your Loved One.
At Tippecanoe, we believe that a life remembered…lives on. It lives on in the hearts and minds of everyone who cherishes a memory of the deceased. Our goal is to help you honor your loved one by sharing fond memories and celebrating the story of their life. The loss of a loved one naturally creates a gathering of family and friends. Our services help to keep the focus of the gathering on how your loved one lived, not how they died.
We Promise. . .Your Service Can Be As Traditional or
As Personal As You Like.
Many families find significant comfort in a traditional funeral service. Tippecanoe Funeral Home & Cremation Services has always, and will always, be ready to care for families wanting a traditional service.
We also pride ourselves on being the most flexible, creative and innovative funeral home in the West Lafayette area. When it comes to personalizing a funeral, as long as it is legal and ethical, we will do everything possible to accommodate your family’s request. The following are a few examples of how we could personalize a service for your family.
- If the deceased loved hunting and fishing we would encourage the family to bring in his or her boat, duck blinds, and their favorite camouflage items. In the obituary we could make a special request that people wear their camouflage to the memorial.
- If a dedicated football fan passed away, we could bury him or her in their favorite jersey, and the whole chapel could be filled with their football memorabilia. We could even have a TV set up to replay their favorite Super Bowl game at the visitation.
- For a lady who loved sewing, quilting, and knitting, we would encourage her friends and family to bring her creations to the service and we would carefully put them on display to be appreciated by the entire gathering. As a special keepsake, all attending the funeral (except the young ones!) could be given knitting needles with her photo and a cherished quote that she always shared.
We Promise…To Serve Your Family As Only a Family-Owned Company Can Do.
Tippecanoe Memory Gardens and Tippecanoe Funeral & Cremation Services are truly family owned. The Shipper family has three generations of funeral home and cemetery experience. David Shipper leads the family business and he is personally involved in all aspects of day to day operations.
At most funeral homes, they are primarily focused on the care of the deceased and the logistics of a funeral. But at Tippecanoe, our family is focused on the care of your family. In fact, only 10% of what we do is for the deceased. The other 90% involves helping your family navigate a painful loss and begin the process of healing.
We Promise…To Make Everything as Simple As Possible.
The loss of a loved one can be an overwhelming experience. Whether the loss was expected or unexpected, the impact on the surviving family members can be significant. As a result, even something as common as driving a car can be difficult in the days following the passing.
At Tippecanoe, we are able to provide families with a uniquely convenient and simple funeral experience. Having our funeral home (and in the meantime, as always, our mausoleum chapels are available for funeral services) located at the cemetery eliminates the need for a procession.
It is common for families to have a visitation one day, return the next day for a ceremony in the chapel, proceed a short distance for a graveside or mausoleum ceremony and return to the funeral home for a reception. All done without a long, and potentially dangerous, funeral procession through West Lafayette.
We Promise…To Earn Our 5-Star Reputation
