Johnston & Williams Funeral Home and Crematory holds a permit authorizing us to scatter cremated remains in the Columbia River. While insurance requirements keep us from taking your family with us on the boat, you can take comfort in knowing the scattering is completed under our direct supervision.
Every scattering on the Columbia River includes rose petals that are scattered with the cremated remains. Once completed, your family will be provided with an artistic, framed photo of the water, showing your loved one's final resting place on the river, along with a certificate bearing the date, time and coordinates of where the scattering took place.
This service starts at $350 which includes the services, framed photo and certificate mentioned above. Although this service may be arranged at any time, scatterings are only completed between May 15 and September 15 each year. If you've been holding off on scattering your loved one's cremated remains and think this would be an appropriate way to proceed, please reach out to us to set an appointment to visit further.
