The farewell viewing, also known as the parting view, will be at the beginning of the funeral service.

Due to the common desire of family and guest to greet and/or hug at the conclusion of services, we must refrain from offering a viewing at the end of the church service.

Mortuary staff will arrive at the church one hour prior to the service to allow family and guest to view your loved one before the service begins.

The processional (formal entrance of the family), if any, will consist of the immediate family only. All other family and guest should take their seat prior to the processional.

Immediate family members consist of the spouse, children, mother, father, siblings, and the contracting person (person arranging the services).

Uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, and nephews are not considered immediate family members.

“Funeral” stickers for the journey to the cemetery will not be given out. Those traveling to the cemetery should turn on their headlights and emergency flashers.

Please remember to keep tissues in your pocket or purse as the mortuary staff are prohibited from offering and collecting tissue due to the increased risk of spreading Covid-19.
