Entombment, like other forms of disposition, is a matter of personal preference. Typically, entombment follows a funeral or memorial service. The deceased is then transported to the mausoleum. As in earth burial, traditional caskets are utilized. Often times there is a simple service at the mausoleum itself.

Following the service, the casket is placed in a crypt of the mausoleum. Lettering is then placed on the outside of the crypt, memorializing the deceased. Several area cemeteries maintain mausoleums for entombment. The staff at Olson Funeral and Cremation Services is always available to assist in this decision-making process.
