The Daly-Leach Chapel and Crematory is happy to return to normal operation after the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are having services as we did prior to the pandemic but continue to provide Webcasting for funerals in our facility and off site at families request.
We have also added an online arrangement format for families that are out of state or do not want to come to the funeral home.

The Daly-Leach Chapel remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them.
And according to the CDC, at this time, there is no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of confirmed or suspected COVID-19; however, federal, state and local public health guidance may impact the size of gathering a family is able to plan. Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may chose either burial or cremation as usual.

Planning for a celebration of life service in the future can be an effective way for a family to work through some of their grief.

The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.
