Personalized Funerals In Penn Yan

At Townsend-Wood & Zinger Funeral Home, we believe each unique individual deserves an equally unique memorial service. Your stories from life inspire us to create a fitting tribute to honor your loved one.

Imagine a golf-themed service for someone who spent every spare moment on the green, complete with keepsake monogrammed golf balls for guests. Or perhaps, envision the red-carpet premiere of a video tribute for your family’s film buff. When it comes to a custom memorial service, our experienced team can handle just about any request.

We offer a wide range of ceremony options. You can choose a contemporary celebration of life or a traditional religious ceremony—or integrate elements of both for a comfortable balance.
