At Shinn Funeral Service, we realize
that our services do not end with the funeral ceremony. That is why
we invite calls for informal counseling and support. We assist the
family with insurance claims and veterans paperwork. We also
provide an aftercare booklet series to families we serve. Referral
service is provided for professional counseling and other local and
national support groups. We have purchased books relating to death
and dying, grief and the grieving process and have placed them in
the local library for the benefit of all area residents. A list of
these related library offerings is available on this web site. We
welcome tours of our facility by any interested group or class.
Understandably, these tours must be handled on an appointment
and active involvement
Our membership and active involvement in National Funeral Directors
Association, the Arkansas Funeral Directors Association, The Funeral Ethics Association and
The International Order of the Golden
Rule (OGR) recognize our commitment to funeral service. OGR,
founded in 1928, is committed to helping independent funeral homes
stay independent so funeral directors can focus on what is truly
important. . . the FAMILY. Membership in these organizations offers
us the opportunity for continuing our education to better serve
