Welcome to Overton Funeral Homes, in Traer, Dysart and Garwin, and Parrott and Wood Chapel of Memories Funeral Home and Crematory in Waterloo. Our guiding philosophy is to provide the highest level of service to everybody at their time of loss.
Even if you've previously been involved in planning a funeral service, each experience is unique. Our funeral directors will provide you with the information necessary to help you make the best decisions when honoring a loved one. Our staff of funeral service assistants come from diverse backgrounds and experiences with a singular focus to bring compassion and professionalism to you during visitations and services.
In addition to "at-need" services, Parrott & Wood can help you gather information and make decisions "pre-need". There are many advantages to pre-planning and pre-paying for your services. We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and share how you can make your final wishes known to your family and, possibly, save money in the process. In addition to private appointments, our staff offers educational opportunities throughout the communities we serve.

The average person will plan only 1-2 funerals within their lifetime. Most will enter the arrangement conference, at a time of need, with no idea of what type of service their loved one wanted, how much services will cost nor how they will pay for these final expenses. None of these are made easier by the fact that it can be an emotional time. Let us take away some of the mystery with helpful insights into funeral expenses and funding options.
