Funeral pre-planning is an important part of everyone’s life transition activities. Due to the many details and decisions that must be made when a death occurs, these arrangements are usually considered easier when made in advance. Bosma-Renkes Funeral Homes, Ltd. is a licensed and bonded funeral trust fund management organization. We offer self-directed payment plan options. This means that you can prepay your funeral expenses in any amount on a periodic basis or from time to time at your discretion. We can also provide you with insurance coverage to guarantee that the balance of your funeral expenses are paid should you die before all payments are made. We also offer Guaranteed Funeral Trust Agreements. The terms of this type of pre-payment plan guarantee the purchaser that the beneficiary of the trust will receive our professional services, facilities and equipment and funeral merchandise as selected and described, in exchange for the balance of the trust account, regardless of the amount in the account.
Should it be necessary for you to apply for assistance payments from Illinois Department of Human Services or the Iowa Department of Social Services, Title XIX programs, we will help prepare you for what is known as the “needs assessment interview”.

The Estate Planning process is a critical part of preparing for one’s death. A Will is a key part of an estate plan. Everyone should have a will drawn up by an attorney. Such a legal document can prevent problems for your survivors while also ensuring that your personal wishes will be honored. We recommend that you consult with an attorney to help you with these matters as well as with a Living Will, Power of Attorney for Health Care and Power of Attorney for Property.
