Our Policy Regarding Arrangements and Funeral Services During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Policies are subject to change without notice to comply with State of Wisconsin Health Guidelines

  • We encourage families to make arrangements over the phone or online. Our website has a tool under the pre-plan tab which will allow for ease of making arrangements online. Our directors are also willing to discuss arrangements on a conference call.
  • We recommend direct cremation, direct burial or services limited to 10 people. Funeral home staff can assist in planning a memorial service at a later date.
  • If families must make arrangements in person please follow social distancing guidelines.
  • Gatherings of 10 or more are banned statewide.
  • No food or receptions are permitted in the funeral home.
  • The Archdiocese has cancelled funeral masses.
  • Individual churches may allow small, private services. Funeral home staff can check on church policies.
  • Please keep in mind that these policies are developed to keep the public and our employees safe. These policies are subject to change without notice. The funeral home does not have control over governmental policies that are put into place. We do sincerely apologize for the situation.

We are receiving many inquiries as to what is allowed at this time with regards to funerals. We are still able to have small family services.  Services with 10 people or less are still allowed.  Social distancing needs to be followed.  At this time we have been advised that once the body has been properly prepared there is no risk to the family to have a viewing.  We do have the ability to livestream services to our Facebook page so that other friends and family can take part.  While this is not the ideal it is a way that we can honor those who have died.   We know that not being able to have the funeral that your loved one deserves is painful and for that we are truly sorry.  In difficult times ceremony and tradition are very important.  Many families are proceeding with a simple cremation or burial at this time and waiting to schedule memorial services for when times normalize.


We are doing most funeral arrangements at this time over the phone and via email.  Our website has an area for families to fill out much of the information we need under the pre-planning tab.  For families who do come into the funeral home to make arrangement please understand our need for social distancing.  It is very awkward for us also.  Our directors are very friendly people who like to shake your hand or give you a sympathy hug but at this time we need to follow the guidelines provided.  We need our funeral directors healthy at this time so that they can continue to serve families in need.  Thank you for your understaning during this difficult times.  


***Building hours have changed.  Please call before coming to any of our locations.  We will arrange to have someone available.
