Burial with Wedding Ring
My mother was married to my father for 61 years and never took off her wedding band. Can we bury her with it or do we have to take it off before burial?
You can remove any jewelry you want from the deceased before the burial. You may choose to have it on during the visitation, during the funeral service and then take it off before the actual burial. My wedding band is my wife’s grandfathers’, so obviously they didn’t bury it.
However, my grandmother never took her ring off, so we buried it with her. We just couldn’t bring ourselves to taking it off.
So there are two examples of either side of that argument.
