Green Burial
 
What once was old, is new again
A green burial may sound like a new concept, but before embalming was used to preserve our loved ones body,
the burial process was very similar to what we call a green burial today.
Strode Funeral Home understands that even though green burial has been around for a very long time,
the notion is new to many people. That is why we would like to take this opportunity to explain some of the processes involved.
Before the burial, a family may decide to have a memorial service, or even a traditional funeral
Your loved one will then be wrapped in a burial  shroud, and Pallbearers will gently lower the body
into the ground; this is called the committal service. After the committal service, the family may choose to leave the cemetery, or they may stay for the closing of the grave. The family may also participate with the filling of the grave.
Green Haven is currently Oklahoma’s only green cemetery.  It is located west of Stillwater.
