A message to our families regarding Coronavirus:


We’re taking the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak very seriously, as our top priority is keeping the families we serve and our staff members safe. Our business is still operating as usual, and we’re doing everything we can to keep our facility and equipment clean and sanitized. We will be following the recommended guidelines of the IDPH and CDC. 

Per safety guidelines, we are keeping chapel capacity to only 10 guests; Family are encouraged to give family members rotational time slots of arrival and visitors are encouraged to stay only 15-minutes to pay their repects. Communication is a key factor.  The elderly and people of all ages with severe underlying health conditions are at higher risk of developing serious

Covid-19 illness and are encouraged to consider refraining from attendence as they are among the most at-risk.


A suggestion is to have a selected family member in attendance to send a private invite-only facebook group event to those who wish to attend via social media. 



We encouraged family and friends to wear gloves and facemaks


In accordance with the state of Illinios and cemetery regulations.  All Burials will be private services in additon there can only be 10 people at the graveside.  Cemeteries are very strict and will stop the burial from proceeding if the rules are not met. Therefore, we highly recommend that you do not meet at the cemetery and come out of your cars becuase this will delay the burial process for the family. 


If your loved one has died from Covid-19, people should consider not touching the body before embalming. However, There may be less of a chance of the virus spreading from certain types of touching, such as holding the hand or hugging after the body has been embalmed for viewing. Other activities, such as kissing should be avoided before, during and after the body has been embalmed, if possible. 


We encourage you stay informed about this virus and how to stay safe. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website is a great place to start:
