Coon Rapids Cremation
A northern suburb of Minneapolis, Coon Rapids is the largest city in Anoka County and the 13th largest city in the state overall. Built along the historic Red River Ox Cart Trail, many industries built up along this road and formed the foundations for this city. You can even see the clay excavation site, known as the clay hole, where the Anoka Pressed Brick and Terra Cotta Company excavated in the 1880s. Coon Rapids is also the home of RMS Company, HOM Furniture, the John Roberts Company, ECM Publishers, and the Anoka-Ramsey Community College.
A part of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area, Blaine is home to some 57,000 residents. It’s located on the major highway I35 W. It was originally a part of Anoka, until 1877, after which many people had begun to settle here after the Civil War and the city grew. While other cities in the area have a farming industry, Blaine has to look for other means because of its sandy soil and abundant wetlands. It is home to many beautiful lakes, including Sunrise Lake, Laddie Lake, Club West Lake, and Lochness Lake. It is home to Minnesota’s professional soccer team and a campus of Globe University/Minnesota School of Business.
Cremation in Anoka
Anoka is the county seat for the region and is known as the “Halloween Capital of the World,” after hosting one of the first Halloween parades back in 1920. Anoka was settled in 1844 and was formally incorporated in 1878. The name is derived from two Indian words, Dakota and Ojibwa, translating to something like “working waters from both sides.” There are many points of interest, including Goodrich Field, Windego Park Open Air Theater, Anoka Nature Preserve, and the Anoka Aquatic Center. It is also home to the Anoka Technical College and former US Representative Michele Bachmann.

About Direct Cremation
With direct cremation, the body is cremated in the days following the death, and there is no service beforehand. It is the most economical option available. This eliminates the need for an expensive casket and the need for embalming or other body preparations. The service will then be held on another date. The funeral home will take care of the death certificate and the transportation of the body to the facility. We know funeral expenses can be unexpected and costly, and we like to provide everyone with the opportunity to say goodbye to their loved ones with the proper service they deserve, without putting the family into debt in the process.
