Stettler Funeral Home & Crematorium
Parkview Funeral Chapels & Crematorium
We believe that every life lived – is worthy of a celebration. A funeral is time of honouring the dignity of the life lived and helps provide a special time for family and friends to share in their own expression of remembering, love and appreciation. A funeral is a meaningful event that can help ease the pain of separation, which naturally accompanies a death.
The Stettler Funeral Home has served Stettler and surrounding communities for many years. We will continue to serve despite these complicated and unnerving times. We are closely monitoring Covid-19 and are taking all scenarios very seriously in the well being of the families we serve, the communities and staff.
We are in constant contact with the province’s Chief Medical Officer and the Alberta Funeral Service Association. We will remain vigilant in supporting their recommendations and guidelines.
The Stage 2 relaunch strategy allows for funeral gatherings to be expanded. With appropriate controls in place, funeral homes may allow attendance at a funeral ceremony of no more than 100 people (indoors and outdoors, and no more than 50 people for the reception indoors or 100 people outdoors. Physical distancing and public health measures must be followed.
It is important to point out that provision of food and beverages during funerals or bereavement events is strongly discouraged due to the increased risk of spreading COVID-19. Please refer to the attached specific funeral home guidance document for more information. (PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN NUMBER OF PEOPLE). Social distancing has become our new normal.
Rest assured that we are making every decision at the Parkview / Stettler Funeral Homes in the best intentions of the families, their health and community.
