To our Friends and Neighbors,

To ensure the safety of those we serve and our staff during this time of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Collvins Memorial Funeral Home will continue to adhere to the highest standards of cleanliness and disinfection of the facilities.

If arrangement conferences are to be made in person, we ask that the conference be limited to immediate family. If you or a loved one live out of town or are unable to attend due to travel restrictions, we will make every effort to accommodate your involvement in the arrangement conference via phone, email and/or Facetime.

Collvins Memorial Funeral Home will address public visitations and funeral services per the family’s wishes.  Our commitment to the families and community is to continue to provide the same high level of care and services to you all as we have in the past.

 Collvins Memorial Funeral Home is actively working to provide alternative avenues for the community to be a part of the funeral services during this time and may include Facebook Live, Live Streaming or other possible streaming services. We will continue to conduct graveside services for burial and cremation under these same guidelines.

Our website www.collvinsmemorialfh.com and our Facebook page are always available to read obituaries and to leave your condolences to support the families we are serving.

As we respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that Collvins Memorial Funeral Home will remain active and prepared to serve our community.

The health and welfare of the families we serve, along with our staff is our highest priority. We still believe that supporting one another at a time of loss is of utmost importance. We will continue to closely monitor any and all developments concerning this situation. We urge everyone to follow good personal hygiene, actively try to stay healthy and if you or a loved one are ill, please seek medical advice and stay home.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns; we are available 24 hours a day. Thank you for trusting and allowing us to serve you and your family in a time of need. God bless you all.
