Mortuary installs new crematory

Redwood Memorial Chapel recently took delivery of a new, state-of-the-art Thermtec Cremator.

“We felt it was time to upgrade,” said the Chapel’s President Travis Sandusky in the decision to replace the older cremation equipment. 

 

“Cremation is a central part of our service, and providing it locally with the highest level of dignity and respect is the primary focus of our business.”  

Local contractors Josh Bruce of New Creation Builders and Sage Bruce of Sage Bruce Construction handled the installation of the new cremation equipment, which uses current technology to increase efficiency. Sandusky says the efficiencies realized by the new unit will help keep costs in line with other providers who have the convenience and economy of natural gas service versus the delivered propane that is available in Curry County.  

“We pride ourselves in providing complete service and controlling the quality in every step. Others subcontract the cremation process out to the least expensive provider they can find; the problems that we hear about surrounding cremation usually arise from this type of arrangement,” Sandusky said.

Redwood Memorial Chapel has provided on-site cremation services to residents of Curry and Del Norte counties since 2001. In 2011, the business was purchased by Travis and Alice Sandusky. 

With locations in Brookings and Crescent City, Redwood Memorial offers cremation and funeral services, as well as guaranteed prearrangements, whole body donation, personalized printing and DVD production, and monument and marker design and installation.

  • Greece votes in referendum with future in euro in doubt
    Greece votes on Sunday on whether to accept more austerity in exchange for international aid, in a high-stakes referendum likely to determine whether it leaves the euro-currency area after seven years of economic pain.     Staged against a backdrop of shuttered banks and threats of financial apocalypse, the vote is too close to call and may not produce the clear mandate for negotiations that Athens? creditors seek.     Greeks are split on whether to accept an offer by creditors that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras calls a "humiliation" and is urging people to reject.
  • China curbs IPOs, enlists brokers in all-out bid to end market rout
    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China froze share offers and set up a market-stabilization fund on Saturday, the Wall Street Journal said, as Beijing intensified efforts to pull stock markets out of a nose-dive that is threatening the world's second-largest economy. Beijing's reported suspension of initial public offers (IPOs) came a few hours after extraordinary announcements by major brokers and fund managers, which collectively pledged to invest at least $19 billion of their own money into stocks. China's government, regulators and financial institutions are now waging a concerted campaign to prop up the nation's two main share markets, amid fears that a meltdown would rock the financial system and inflict heavy losses across an economy where annual growth is already running at a 24-year low.
  • A Greek challenge for 'Mr Europe' Juncker
    It's sultry early July and an emotional Jean-Claude Juncker is on the stump, calling for a 'Yes' vote in a referendum on which he says hangs the future of Europe - and his own career. "A 'Yes' ... would have a significance ... well beyond Europe," he tells voters. This was 2005 and Juncker was addressing his fellow Luxemburgers.
