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.

Sincerely,

Stefanie and Robby Collvins and Staff

The Talk of a Lifetime

Remember the things that matter most.


Meaningful memorialization of a loved one’s passing can transform, heal, and comfort us. It highlights our loved ones’ sacrifices, reminds us of the things that they value, and inspires us with their life stories.


Have the Talk of a Lifetime, a program created by The Funeral and Memorial Information Council, was designed to help families have meaningful conversations about the things that matter most in their lives. These discussions can give important insights to the people they left behind — insights that can be used to honor and remember the lives of their loved ones.


Why is having the talk of a lifetime important?

Although we might have daily conversations with our loved ones, the most meaningful and deep ones don’t always happen. Having this kind of conversation can make a huge difference — it can help us see our loved ones in a different and more positive light, it can teach us valuable lessons, it can give us a clearer picture of the things they love, it can bring us closer together, and it can help us reaffirm to them how much we love them.


Who should have the talk?

We could have the talk of a lifetime with anyone we value, cherish, and love. It could be our grandparents, our parents, our siblings, our uncles and aunts, our cousins, our spouse, our children, our grandparents, or our friends. It also doesn’t have to be done only when we feel we are or someone we love is at the end of their life. We’ll never really know what the future holds, so let us take the opportunities we still have with them while we still can.

How do we start the talk?

We shouldn’t really wait for a special moment to start having these kinds of talks. We can do it anytime and anywhere, when we and our loved ones are comfortable — at home while we’re having meals together,out for a walk, gathered as a family, or playing games.

We could also sometimes start with visual prompts, like a photo or an entire photo album, a memento, or a souvenir. We can open up about past experiences while we’re at memorable place, such as  a church, a favorite restaurant, or an old park. These can be great ways to start a story.


May we always treasure every moment of our lives and have meaningful conversations with the ones we love.
