During this time, we are taking the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak very seriously and our top priority is keeping the families we serve and our staff members safe. Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facility and ensures we are all following recommended healthy habits. 

The CDC and The National Funeral Directors Association, along with our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow. 

With respect to State of Illinois Guidelines during this time social distancing and face masks that cover the mouth and nose are required upon entry

Precautions that will need to be followed include: wearing a face mask covering the mouth and nose, staying home when sick, proper hand washing for 20 seconds, covering coughs and sneezes, use of hand sanitizer and social distancing of six feet. 

For your convenience, funeral arrangements can be made via phone or email. If you prefer to come to the office, please call ahead to make funeral arrangements at a scheduled time with the funeral director.

We are also requesting that children do not attend any service to ensure they are protected. The elderly are also encouraged to consider refraining from attendence as they are among the most at risk.

Please consider showing your condolences in other ways: loving words and a warm smile are as meaningful to the family as a traditional handshake or hug. Instead of attending funeral services consider sending a card, calling your loved one, and sending food, a plant or flowers to their home. 

Please be aware there may be some delays with securing certified death certificates and cremation permits, due to closures at some government offices. 

Thank you for your cooperation with the new compliances.

What Our Families are Saying TESTIMONIALS

I couldn't be happier considering the circumstances with Alicia and Felicia. They explained in detail what the costs were , arrangements, and the whole process. The funeral home was very clean. Due to Covid-19 we couldn't do much, however, Felicia and Alicia took care of us. I highly recommend this funeral home.
