Honoring your loved one … your way.

There are many ways to commemorate a life. Your family traditions, personal lifestyles, and the desires of all should always be considered. It’s a very personal decision, which is why St. Charles County and area St. Louis families have trusted us for generations to help plan tributes that truly tell the story of the life that has been lived.

What is a Visitation?
A Visitation lets family and friends say their last goodbyes by gathering to view the person who has died, and be there to support survivors. Visitations are usually held before a funeral ceremony and before burial or cremation takes place.

What is a Contemporary Gathering?
A Contemporary Gathering is less formal and may be held at any of our funeral homes, in one of our reception centers, a private home, a park or outdoor setting or any place that has special meaning to you and your loved one.

What are Life Celebrations?
Life Celebrations can include any type of gathering or event where family and friends meet to share sympathy, support, and recollection. It is made more special, and more meaningful, through the addition of personal touches that communicate, celebrate, and rejoice in the qualities of the life that has been lived. These include memory tables, photo boards, favorite music, tribute videos, as well as funeral and cremation merchandise to symbolize lifestyle, hobbies, military service, and professional careers.

What is a Green Burial?

Green Burial Council LogoBaue Funeral Homes and Crematory is the only Funeral Service Company in the state of Missouri approved by the Green Burial Council, a non-profit organization, to offer a green burial package. For such arrangements, formaldehyde-based embalming is prohibited, as is the use of metal or hardwood caskets.

Caskets, coffins, or alternative containers used to enclose and transport your loved one are made of biodegradable materials and are available in a range of prices. Service options may be arranged within the limited time frame green burial allows. As with all of our service and merchandise offerings, detailed price information for each component is itemized on our General Price List and our Eco-Friendly Casket & Urn Price List.

Although formaldehyde-based embalming is prohibited, there are alternative embalming and preparation care options available. A funeral with a private family viewing can be arranged for an additional fee. Our green burial offerings can be provided within a green or conventional cemetery and in certain instances at homestead burial sites. Many families will have a gathering formal or informal prior to or after the green committal. This allows a time of remembrance for family and friends to honor the life of their loved one.

Customer Review

Joan Freeman

I lost my husband suddenly and though he had made many preparations for his death, prearranged funeral services was not one of them. My daughter and I met with Dustin Livengood and he made the process easier than I ever could have dreamed. As with many families, this pandemic has changed things drastically making large open to the public services scary. Dustin helped us put together a private service that worked beautifully for us. The day of the service, Milton Schaper was our director as Dustin had another service. Milt was wonderful throughout the morning as well. With the bitter cold weather we were given the option of doing the graveside service at the mortuary saving all of the family members the drive on treacherous roads and standing in the cold. With Milt's guidance, the service went beautifully. I couldn't ask for a more compassionate group of people than the ones I encountered at Baue. I thank you so very much.
