Eau Claire Community Outreach Events

Students from the UW-Eau Claire toured our funeral home on November 7. Participants make up students from both the nursing and social work programs at the University. We host this tour annually for both the fall and spring semesters.

If you have a group or are an individual that would like a tour of our funeral home, please contact us either by sending an email or by calling at 715-830-5470.

Comments from past participants:
"I have been excited for this field trip since before the semester even started. ...I feel the Beede's are very careful to respect the dignity and worth of an individual even after death."

"..the tour was extremely interesting. Jeff showed us a lot behind the scenes I would never have been able to see otherwise. He demystified the whole funeral process and made it less scary."

"The funeral home tour was fun for me. It really shot down the wrong ideas that I had associated with them."

"I liked the fact they do everything in their funeral home when someone has chosen cremation. I think that gives families a sense of ease that they don't need to worry about where their loved one is."
