After Care Benefits
As grief is a journey not experienced the same way by any two people, the team at Proko-Wall Funeral Home reaches out to mourners with a variety of phone calls, home visits, reading materials and support programs. All families served by the funeral home recieve a quarterly newletter called Tomorrow filled with articles on grieving, community events, helpful resources, Proko-Wall news, and recipes for easy nutritious meals. In addition, our grief library, the largest in the Green Bay area, offers over 100 selections of book and videos. The funeral home also flies the flag on the first anniversary of a veteran's death, and provides the family with a special certificate of the event.
Families who select any service other than our direct cremation package are also invited to the Spring Planting Event and a Holiday Service of Remembrance. The Spring Planting acknowledges the changing of the seasons and the opportunity for growth in all of our lives. And because the holidays are such a special time for family, they often become a diffcult path during a grief journey. The Holiday Service offers a safe place to mourn your loved while while acknowledging the sacredness of the season.
Widows and widowers are invited to two bus trips during their first year of mourning. The widow and a guest are pampered with coach travel, a meal, a local venue of interest. Past destinations include Door County, Miller Park, Waupaca's Chain of Lakes, Amish Communities, The Paine Center, and the Foxy Lady.
The Proko-Wall team realizes that your grief journey has just begun. We take pride in the fact that our care does not end when the funeral is over.

Who is the Proko-Wall Aftercare Coordinator
Proko-Wall Funeral Home & Crematory hired of Peggy George as Aftercare Coordinator in 2016. Few funeral homes and crematories in Green Bay assist families after the funeral service, memorial service or celebration of life. But, for a lot of people, that is when they need the most help. The weeks and months after the funeral seem daunting.
We added Peggy George to the Proko-Wall team to serve you and your family long after the funeral is over. Peggy is in charge of planning the Proko-Wall Christmas Program, the Spring Planting Program, and the two yearly bus trips exclusively for widows and widowers experiencing the first year of loss. Peggy also takes care of the Proko-Wall newsletter, Tomorrow.
In addition, Peggy can assist your family with filing for Veteran's Benefits, delivering death certificates, laminating obituaries, and all of those special touches that seem overwhelming when you have to do it alone.
Peggy is a member of St. Matthew Parish and is the former owner of Seize the Day event planning.
Proko-Wall Publishes Tomorrow Newsletter
Proko-Wall Funeral Home has been publishing the quarterly newletter Tomorrow for over 20 years to assist families who have lost a loved one. The newsletter includes articles about grief, Proko-Wall news, a recipe, a book review for a book available in our grief library, a calendar of local events, and an up to date listing of area support groups. Proko-Wall mails the newsletter to families for a year following the death of their loved one. The newsletter proved to be so popular that Tomorrow is also distributed to area churches and resource outlets. Extra copies are available at the funeral. If you have a recipe you would like to share or a topic you would like to see covered in an upcoming addition, please call the funeral home at 468-4111 and ask for Peggy.
