What do I do when my loved one has died at home?
Contact the funeral home when a death has occurred. We will transport the deceased to the funeral home and set up a time to make arrangements. We will help coordinate arrangements with the cemetery, church and clergy.
Will you come right away?
If you call us and request immediate assistance, we will come within the hour and pick up the deceased. It is perfectly acceptable if you and your family wish to spend some time with your loved one to say goodbye. Just let us know when you want us to arrive.
We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Can Andreason’s still make arrangements even if my loved one dies out of state?
Yes, we can assist you with out-of-state arrangements, either to transfer the remains to or from another state.
How do we obtain certified copies of the death certificate?
Families may order certified copies of the death certificate from the mortuary they have chosen or directly from the state.
Families may need certified copies of the death certificate for:
• Social Security
• Bank accounts (saving, checking and loans)
• Insurance policies
• Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
• Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA)
• Mutual fund Accounts and Stock Portfolios
In Oregon, the county charges for each certified copy.
