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.

I am sure you have heard this before, but feel the need to share with you how the Baue Team had an impact on a very difficult time in my life and my family’s. My Father passed away on February 12th. I was out of the country and had just seen him before I left. We do not know the cause of his death but it was unexpected and sudden. As you can imagine, being out of the country and not being able to be with him and then coming home to make arrangements for his funeral was devastating. We have always been very close.

The funeral director, with their gentle voice and caring manner made the appointment to make arrangements much less stressful. Their guidance was appreciated during this time. When we arrived to my father’s visitation on Sunday, I knew I would be seeing my father for the first time since he passed as well as the last. The Baue Team Members were there with an abundance of kindness to usher me and my siblings. We had shared with them that father had a love for Christmas that he instilled in us as well. My Mom died in 2015. My Father has not allowed us to take down his Christmas tree since she passed. He loved how the glowing lights made him feel. To our surprise, Baue had placed a small tree with lights and ornaments made of condolences from friends and family on your website near his casket. Somehow it made us feel more at peace that evening. When the priest could not attend to provide a short service at Jefferson Barracks, our funeral director was there to help us say goodbye. They read the poem, “ The Dash” by Linda Ellis which I will carry with me as a meaningful lesson as to how to live life. I’m not sure why they chose this particular poem but it was spot on for all of us.

I believe that the Baue staff has a gift and a calling to do the work they do.

Baue is making a difference in people’s lives through their compassionate and caring staff.
