For most traditional services the body
is placed in a casket and there is a visitation that will take place.
After the visitation a funeral service is held. The service can
take place at a church or even right at our funeral home. After
the service the body is buried in a cemetery or entombed in a mausoleum.
For those families preferring cremation,
many options are available. We offer memorial services or a full
funeral with visitation, followed by cremation. We also offer minimal
cremations for those families preferring no ceremony.
At the Chilson Funeral Chapel we offer our
services at no charge to the families affected by an infant's death.
We will provide a visitation with a funeral service, or simply a
graveside service. The combination casket/vault are also something
that we provide free of charge.
funeral homes have served the Lakota, Dakota and Chippewa families
for many years. All night wakes are customary at our
chapels and we have funeral directors and embalmers who are fully
licensed in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
There are no
extra transportation costs for any deaths in North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin
or Minnesota. Also there are no extra costs for deaths and funerals
in the Minneapolis area. Kevin Chilson will personally come to the family's home to make all funeral arrangements.

Griefshare is a support group that meets weekly. You'll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an "oasis"
on your long journey through grief. There are three key parts to your GriefShare experience: video seminar, support group with small group discussion
and a workbook to journal and work on personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics.
The 13 week spring session runs February 13 through May 8. There are two groups to choose from:
1:30-3:30 pm or 6:00-8:00 pm. The meetings are held at Buffalo Covenant Church.
