Celebrant Services

Remembering a loved one that passed away should be about the days they lived, not about the day they died. Our Certified Funeral Celebrants will work with your family and friends to create a unique, personalized Life Tribute Celebration Service. Through eulogies, video and audio tributes, and family story time, we will coordinate and plan a uniquely personal and memorable service to honor your loved one.

Memorial Products

These special remembrance items are keepsakes cherished by family and friends alike. A family only has to supply their favorite family photographs. Our staff will assist you with the design and layout and will take care of the rest of the details.

Family Car

Upon your request, Bean Funeral Homes will arrange drivers and special cars for you and your family. For some, comforting moments occur in family cars or limousines on the way from one funeral event to another. After an emotional service surrounded by friends and family, some quiet time with immediate family can be calming and grounding.

Testimonials

Dear Mr. Bean,

I would recommend Bean Funeral Home to anyone. I especially commend Joseph McCullough, he is such a wonderful, caring person. Rick, my husband, hand-picked Joe after a Sunday Mass. I thank God I was standing near them that I Heard Rick say to Joe that if anything would happen to him that he wanted Joe to take care of him and his burial. We never dreamed that Rick would pass away so soon and suddenly. I can’t say enough for Joe, he took care of everything and anything I needed. I am so grateful that we met Joe through Patrick, his son, whom Rick loved very much. Patrick used to call Rick “Big Guy”. We recently moved to the Berks County area about 4 ½ years ago. We didn’t know too many places. I thank God for Patrick and Joe. We had people come from different parts of the state and everyone commended what a wonderful job Beans Funeral Home did with the service. You have a wonderful employee. Take good care of Joe, he knows what people want and need. You have a great asset in Joe.

Sincerely, Sue Baumann
