Benches, Markers & Monuments

January 21, 2014

Wyuka has the best showroom in town  of benches, ledgers, markers and monuments. This is just a sample of the many shapes, sizes and colors available.

Please give a member of our family service representatives a call at 402-474-3600.

It has been our privilege to serve you and your family this past year. The holidays are a difficult time for many who have lost a loved one. Wyuka invited family and friends to attend our Tree of Remembrance Service to honor those loved ones and to support those who grieve. During the month of December family members signed an ornament provided by Wyuka in memory of their loved one. The ornaments were hung on our tree until after the service held on December 15, when they were taken home by the families. Many of the 60 plus in attendance had given us pictures of their loved one to honor with a pictorial tribute played during the service. Following the half-hour program held in our chapel, families gathered in the Garden Room for a reception.
