Caring & Affordable Services

History

Chippewa Valley Cremation Services & Celebration of Life Center has been serving Altoona area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

Chippewa Valley Cremation Services & Celebration of Life Center was founded in 2010 by Matt Thompson, a long time Wisconsin native and Eau Claire resident. Matt worked as a funeral director in the area for eight years serving families in the Chippewa Valley. One commonality he saw time after time was family members not only shocked at how much it cost to have their loved one buried or cremated, but also that many simply could not afford to pay for what should be an affordable event. Matt opened Chippewa Valley Cremation Services & Celebration of Life Center to provide people in the area with truly affordable funeral service options. In May of 2013, Matt aquired Schriver Funeral Chapel in Bloomer, now known as Thompson Funeral Home & Chippewa Valley Cremation Services. In October of 2018, Matt expanded Chippewa Valley Cremation Services opening the all new Celebration of Life Center. Consequently the business name has evolved to Chippewa Valley Cremation Services & Celebration of Life Center.



Chippewa Valley Cremation Services & Celebration of Life Center is a fully licensed funeral home (as required by law). Since day one, we have strived to keep our overhead operating costs to a minimum to provide families we serve with the best possible prices in the area. We provide the families we serve with only the services they want and need. Unlike some of our funeral service competitors, there are NO MEMBERSHIP FEES at Chippewa Valley Cremation Services & Celebration of Life Center. We also feature an on-site state-of-the-art crematory located at our cremation center in Altoona.

To keep our operating expenses low, we utilize modern technology and are always retraining our staff on the most effecient and effective ways to operate our family business, while maintaining the special personal touches our client families deserve. Since many of the families we serve belong to a church, we are able to use your church for all visitation and funeral ceremonies to assist you in keeping your funeral costs as low as possible. For the growing number of families that do not have a church home or choose not to use their church, we are happy that we can offer you the use of our state-of-the-art Celebration of Life Center located in Altoona, just off Highway 12, next to Charter Spectrum.. For the families we serve to the north of the Eau Claire area, we are also happy to offer the use of Thompson Funeral Home in Bloomer. Thompson Funeral Home is the only funeral home north of Eau Claire/Altoona that offers full service meal catering. It is also the largest funeral home for miles north of the Eau Claire area.

For those families seeking a traditional funeral service, visitation or tribute service or even a fully catered lunch, we are now able to offer all of those services at our Altoona and Bloomer locations. (Note: In Altoona we are also licensed to sell beer/malted beverages at your celebration of life event). The best part is, you will only pay for the services you chose. We guarantee you WILL pay much less with us over any other funeral home in the area. You can visit Thompson Funeral Home online at www.thompsonfuneralhome.com.
