COVID-19 UPDATE October 19, 2020
Pfeifer Funeral Home has had to make some difficult decisions to adhere to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials. In an October 8, 2020 media event, Gov. Mike DeWine said, "Eighteen counties are considered “red” under the state’s rating system for counties with high rates of virus spread and exposure, the highest since July. Half of those counties have outbreaks related to weddings or funerals".
The Pfeifer Funeral Home is limiting attendance to services at the funeral home to 30 total participants due to the size of our chapel. To keep the attendance to 30 family members or friends, we suggest services be held in private or by invitation only. As of now, most cemeteries are also limiting the graveside service at the cemetery to no more than 10 people, unless the cemetery has set other guidelines.
• Families can still choose burial or cremation.
• Although limited to 30 attendees at the funeral home, funeral services, memorial services, celebrations of life, and graveside services are all possible.
• A limited number of chairs will be provided within the Funeral Home. We will sanitize the chairs each time they are used.
• Arrangement conferences can be done remotely (by phone or email) if the family chooses not to attend in person.
• In person arrangement conferences are limited to 3 family members only.
Thank you for your kindness, patience and prayers as we continue to help our families say goodbye to their loved ones. Our Pfeifer Funeral Home staff is honored to serve our community. If we can be of assistance or if you have questions, please contact us at 614-755-9500.
If you are feeling ill, or if you are taking care of someone that is ill, please stay home. If you would like to show your support by reaching out to the family or by sending flowers, you may do so by visiting their memorial webpage on our website.
Recently we used Pfeifer Funeral services for My Mother and my Sister. Mark and his staff were very professional. They made the process manageable. Mark is so talented in his profession. He has the right amount of empathy and he streamlined the process. We said Goodbye to my mother January 14 and my sister January 15 2020. Previous to this Mark took care of the services for my Nephew and my son. I would highly recommend Pfeifer Funeral Hone for your funeral needs.
