The chapels of O’Connell-Benedict Family Funeral Homes are here to offer a pleasant and open setting for families, friends and neighbors to join together to honor loved ones..
While our funeral homes facilities in River Falls, WI, Ellsworth, WI & Prescott, WI are set up differently, each one was designed with the needs of families in mind. Each location provides room for family memorabilia and personal items to be brought in to tell the story of the one who has died. We encourage family members to bring those items that will spark conversation, trigger memories, and help memorialize their loved one. Examples include, but are certainly not limited to: deer and fish mounts to hang on the walls; a motorcycle parked in the chapel, a snowmobile, boat, or other vehicle parked just outside; paintings and easels, work stations, tools, sports memorabilia; or any other items that tell a little bit about the life of their loved one.
If food is desired for visitations, our funeral homes have family areas that can accommodate light refreshments, Afterwards, when services are completed, we can also change over to provide the option for dining to smaller groups. The O’Connell- Benedict staff can even help you with ordering food – for visitations and receptions – whether it be for all guests or just the family. We do everything we can to utilize our facilities to suit the needs of each family. Our goal is to make our building a home for the night – a place where your family can feel comfortable, relaxed, and in the moment – while being surrounded by those who care.
