All-Faith Holiday Memorial Program set for Dec. 7

As a service to the families of Tiffin and Seneca County, Traunero Funeral Home and Crematory is to present a free, all-faith 17th annual Holiday Memorial Program at 1 p.m. Dec. 7 at the funeral home, 214 S. Monroe St.

The Rev. Timothy Kummerer, pastor of All Saints/Sts. Patrick & Andrew parishes, and Rev. Hannah Tucker, pastor of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, will speak on “Hope for the Holidays.”

“The holiday period is especially painful for those reflecting on past losses at this traditionally family time of year,” said Richard Traunero, president of Traunero Funeral Home and Crematory. “Our Holiday Memorial Program will provide coping strategies that will be useful as the holidays approach.”

In addition to the speakers, the program is to include a Tree of Remembrance, in which registered families may place a personalized ornament on a tree in memory of a loved one. Families then may take their ornament home with them to place on their tree, compliments of the funeral home.

There is to be a candlelight memorial service in memory of all deceased members of the community.

The event is free, but seating is limited. Reservations are requested by calling (419) 447-3113.
