Additional Facilities



Christy-Smith Family Resource Center and Gift Shop
In the continuing tradition of providing the finest funeral-related services in the Siouxland area, Christy-Smith Funeral Homes is pleased to present the Family Resource Center.  Combining products and inspiration, the Family Resource Center allows the consumer a caring place to come when faced with the sensitive subject of death.

The stressful, and sometimes intimidating, responsibility of making funeral arrangements has been replaced with the opportunity to plan a celebration of your loved one's life in a comfortable, non-threatening environment.

Our Family Resource Center is divided into the following areas:
*Event Planning
*Cremation Caskets
*Cremation Urns
*Cremation Urn Vaults
*Cemetery Lots
*Cemetery Markers
*Sympathy Cards
*Bereavement Quilts
*A Grief Lending Library

In addition to offering the Family Resource Center to the community, we realized the need for a large area to be used by our families as a gathering place following the funeral ceremony.  Thus, we have taken approximately one-third of this building and made it into a community room, complete with a small kitchen and tables and chairs.

The community room is available for families who wish to cater a luncheon for relatives and friends who have attended the services.  Several area restaurants have a menu to select from, and will cater the food service to the room.

The community room is also available to the general public.  Do you need a large room to host an event: open house, graduation, showers, meetings, etc.?  This room is available for those functions at a nominal fee.

The Family Resource Center and Gift Shop is located at 1819 Morningside Avenue, Sioux City, Iowa (right next to Christy-Smith Funeral Home).

Book of Memories™

Memorialization at its best, any family member or friend can take advantage of this free service by creating an account and a book to memorialize their loved one.


Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?

Expressions of Sympathy

It can be difficult to find the right words, so we have hand-picked a collection of sympathy and remembrance gifts that will be cherished.
