New Castle, PA--The families we serve are always our top priority.  During confusing and concerning times such as the current COVID-19 event, we want to share our plans with you.  We want to assure you that we are all in this together.

*****UPDATE 4/4/2021, 1:30 PM*****

First, we are closely monitoring and following all guidelines from the President, Gov. Wolf, CDC, NFDA, PFDA, as well as local and state emergency services.  As of April 4th, we are following Gov. Wolf's orders and REQUIRING masks to be worn in our place of business as well as adhering to the limitations based on capacity.  Our limitations are based on the capacity percentage limitations set forth by the Governor.   We are prepared to offer families private visitation and/or funeral services.   Webcasting and/or recording the funeral for remote viewing by family and friends is available.  Also, our families still have the option to hold a public memorial service at a later date.

We have set in place new measures to help protect and accommodate the higher risk members of the public.  We will make every effort to accommodate families in making arrangements and conducting services in any capacity needed to ensure their safety and comfort while honoring their loved one. 

  • Arrangements (both at-need and preneed) can be made remotely, either online or by teleconference
  • We are expanding our ability to webcast and/or record funeral services
  • We encourage the use of our online guestbooks for condolence messages to the family
  • We have placed reminders throughout our funeral home to ask that physical contact, such as shaking hands or hugging, be limited with family members
  • Our large gathering spaces will be set up to all social distancing
  • We continue, as always, to provide professional hand sanitizer stations throughout our facilities and have enacted extra cleaning in all public areas
  • We have placed signage strongly encouraging calling our facility for all business inquiries and the use of face masks when entering the building

Again, our family and staff are here to serve, protect and honor each family as we have been for over 150 years.
