Built along the historic Red River Ox Cart Trail, many industries built up along this road and formed the foundations for this city. You can even see the clay excavation site, known as the clay hole, where the Anoka Pressed Brick and Terra Cotta Company excavated in the 1880s. Coon Rapids is also the home of RMS Company, HOM Furniture, the John Roberts Company, ECM Publishers, and the Anoka-Ramsey Community College.
A part of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area, Blaine is home to some 57,000 residents. It's located on the major highway I35 W. It was originally a part of Anoka, until 1877, after which many people had begun to settle here after the Civil War and the city grew. While other cities in the area have a farming industry, Blaine has to look for other means because of its sandy soil and abundant wetlands. It is home to many beautiful lakes, including Sunrise Lake, Laddie Lake, Club West Lake, and Lochness Lake. It is home to Minnesota's professional soccer team and a campus of Globe University/Minnesota School of Business.
Cremation in Anoka
Anoka is the county seat for the region and is known as the "Halloween Capital of the World," after hosting one of the first Halloween parades back in 1920. Anoka was settled in 1844 and was formally incorporated in 1878. The name is derived from two Indian words, Dakota and Ojibwa, translating to something like "working waters from both sides." There are many points of interest, including Goodrich Field, Windego Park Open Air Theater, Anoka Nature Preserve, and the Anoka Aquatic Center.

This eliminates the need for an expensive casket and the need for embalming or other body preparations. The service will then be held on another date. The funeral home will take care of the death certificate and the transportation of the body to the facility. We know funeral expenses can be unexpected and costly, and we like to provide everyone with the opportunity to say goodbye to their loved ones with the proper service they deserve, without putting the family into debt in the process.

Remembering a Loved One
When choosing cremation, families are afforded a great deal of flexibility when deciding upon funeral and cemetery arrangements.

These can be held at a cemetery, ceremonial garden, or on public or private property. No services at all are required, if this is what a family prefers.

There are several key factors contributing to the growth of cremation, including a drive for new traditions, a variety of available service options, and greater affordability. Contributing to the cost factor of traditional burial are the expenses associated with embalming, viewing, and burial. While cost may not be the foremost consideration in one's mind during a time of grief, reducing these costs can help to lessen stress at a time when many people are already struggling emotionally. Choosing cremation is also viewed as environmentally friendly, as it preserves many of the resources used in a traditional burial and doesn't require the use of already-limited space for burial.
An awareness that cremation is carried out with the utmost reverence and respect for the deceased can bring comfort to loved ones as they begin their journey toward healing. Great care is taken with each cremation, as each is performed individually in a carefully controlled system. The entire process typically takes less than three hours from beginning to end.

Funeral and Cremation Options
There are many available options, including a traditional funeral service with burial, graveside service, funeral service with cremation, direct cremation with memorial service, or direct cremation without a service or memorial. In a traditional funeral service with burial, the family can opt for a viewing where the deceased lies in repose in an open casket. The deceased is then committed to the grave. An option with growing popularity is cremation.
When choosing cremation, it is still possible to have a traditional funeral service with viewing, with the deceased being cremated after the service. Some families choose a memorial service, where the deceased is cremated prior to the service in what's referred to as direct cremation. The cremated remains are typically displayed in an urn, surrounded by family photos and other things that were precious to the deceased. When direct cremation is chosen, the deceased will not be embalmed and is not available for viewing. There are many available options for the disposition of the cremated remains. A family may choose to take the cremated remains home for safe keeping, or they can arrange for the remains to be interred in a gravesite or above-ground vault or mausoleum, or the family may wish to arrange a scattering ceremony.
