About Celebrate Life Iowa

Funeral home in West Des Moines, Iowa

Celebrate Life Iowa Funeral Home & Cremation Services

The Fredregill family began serving Central Iowa families in 1982 when their first funeral home opened. In 2009, a second location was opened. In 2013, Ryan Fredregill could see the trend in cremation rising and realized families were interested in simple affordable direct cremation. He opened Celebrate Life Iowa in West Des Moines to serve all Iowa families with affordable cremation care. 

In 2019, we opened our North Liberty office to serve both Cedar Rapids and Iowa City families. By keeping our cost down and operating storefront locations we pass that savings onto the families we serve. When cost counts and you need a caring hand to care for your loved one look no further than Celebrate Life Iowa.

Celebrate Life

The purpose of a funeral is to provide a way of commemorating a life and bringing together friends and family. We aim for our celebrations to be a time to share memories and remember your loved ones through music, stories, and capturing the nature of their spirit.

The most important thing to keep in mind when creating a celebration is that it should be reflective of your loved one. While religious elements may play a part, they should also include stories about the person’s life that help everyone recapture and revisit their own memories. Sometimes this is best accomplished by having friends or family members share their reflections as part of the service. Some people personalize the service with special music (which may be religious or non-religious). Others bring in pictures to have at the service. Sometimes favorite things that belonged to the deceased are integrated into the ceremony such as wood carvings, golf clubs, or even a motorcycle.

The goal is to give a true sense of who this person was. There is nothing wrong with telling funny stories about the person who died: a funeral recognizes the sad event of death but can include humor. Unique celebrations include a patio tailgate party where everyone wears their loved one’s favorite team jersey, decorating to display their passion project, offering unique food, signature cocktail or wine from their personal cellar, or bringing in your loved one’s private art collection to be on display.

Cremation Services in Iowa

Celebrate Life Iowa offers direct cremation services for those seeking a low-cost and convenient option for their loved ones. Our immediate-need cremation services are a fraction of the price that a funeral home would charge for similar services. To schedule an immediate-need cremation service, you can give us a call or contact us online at www.celebratelifeiowa.com. At Celebrate Life Iowa, our caring staff will guide you throughout the entire process. We make sure that you and your family are not alone when dealing with the grief of your departed loved one. You can pre-pay for your planned funeral at the price it costs today, saving you money. Many enjoy the benefits of prepaying since their financial savings in turn result in more inheritance money for their family. Planning ahead also eliminates the chance for emotional overspending by surviving loved ones. There are various payment plans available, which we are happy to discuss with you in person. Payments are placed in a pre-planning insurance account. In many cases, we can also accept an assignment of an existing life insurance policy for future payment of the amount of the final arrangements you desire. Thank you for entrusting us to take care of your dearly departed. Please know that we are available for you and your entire family. Contact us to learn more about our affordable cremation services today, complete the cremation package starting at $1105.
