“The family is one of nature’s masterpieces,” said Spanish philosopher George Santayana. It may sound like a cliché, but for good reason: Family is important. No matter what your family looks like—big or small, from the same genetic tree or related by choice—these are the people who share the highs and lows of life with you. Family is at the heart of Downing & Lahey Mortuaries & Crematory – a family owned and operated team serving the end-of-life needs of those throughout East and West Wichita.
Every family “masterpiece” also includes a few core principles, and ours first and foremost is trust. It’s why our neighbors have been coming to us again and again for over a century. They trust our expert staff to arrange every detail of their burial or cremation with excellence and professionalism. Would you like to include a tribute video or launch an online memorial for those who can’t attend the funeral service? You can also trust our staff with every aspect of your service and be assured it will be one of special remembrance.
Additionally, families can be a great source of help and support in times of need. The Downing & Lahey family takes this very seriously, and it’s our mission to offer assistance with a personal touch. We can connect you with aftercare resources in East and West Wichita. No matter what, if you find yourself or a family member struggling, don’t hesitate to reach out for immediate grief support or further resources.
Whether your research on end-of-life decisions is just beginning or you’re thinking about putting your own funeral plans in place now, we’d encourage you to check out our information on preplanning as a way to explore all your options. And if a death has just occurred, please don’t hesitate to contact us today. Our family would be honored to help you every step of the way.
Ultimately, the Downing & Lahey family will give our full care and attention to each detail so you can concentrate on what matters most: In a word, family.
