- About Us
Life begins as a blank canvas. Every breath is a brushstroke. Every experience adds color. Each moment gives definition to our work-in-progress until the time for painting is over and our masterpiece is complete.
We call it the art of life.
We are Billings Personalized Funeral Home and Altera Cremation Services of Elkhart, Indiana. When you lose someone you love, we help you frame his or her legacy for family and friends to view, remember, and celebrate as you say goodbye together.
Let’s be candid. We can’t promise it’ll be easy—death never is no matter how prepared one may feel—but we will carry as much of your burden as possible. From beginning to end, we’ll guide you through the process, reviewing your options, helping you choose a style of service, writing announcements, assisting with the necessary paperwork, identifying payment options, and providing aftercare for your family.
We’ve designed our facilities to feel modern and comfortable like a home away from home rather than a stuffy funeral parlor. We reply to your questions with honest, straightforward answers to eliminate confusion. We are happy to accommodate special requests because everyone deserves to be remembered and honored in ways as unique as them. We even offer catered meals so your family can enjoy more time and perhaps a few laughs over shared memories together after the service.
Furthermore, we believe peace of mind should be within everyone’s budget. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice dignity and respect for affordability. Our flexible plans allow you to choose the amenities you want at a price you can afford.
