COVID-19 Update

As funeral professionals we have been asked by several people in our community how we will continue to serve our families. The families that we serve are always our top priority. We want to assure you that we are staying up to date with the changing information we receive everyday from public health officials and government agencies.

For families that experience the loss of a loved one, Daniel Funeral Home will remain prepared 24/7 to serve your family at your time of loss. We will continue to care for your loved one as usual and will follow the guidance and regulations from the Missouri Department of Health.

Our government officials, both federal and state, have advised that all public gatherings be limited to 10 persons or less in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis. We take this pandemic emergency very seriously and are committed to following those recommendations.

We will make every effort to accommodate families in making arrangements and conducting services in any capacity needed to ensure the safety of our community and of our staff while honoring their loved one. We thank you for your patience as we work to safeguard the wellness of everyone who enters our doors.

For the safety of all, until the authorities lift the restrictions, we are implementing the following:

Cremation services will follow the same guidelines as outlined above.

Daniel Funeral Home has been there for our community during difficult times, and we stand ready to help in any way that we can. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Rest assured, we will continue to serve your family with dignity and respect through these uncertain times.

We are here when you need us.   When someone close to you passes away, there are several decisions to be made.  Funeral and cremation arrangements can be relatively simple or very elaborate.

      At the time of death, decisions will have to be made about where to take the family member.  Almost always that is to a local funeral home.  Arrangements can also be made to send the deceased to another state.  We are your information source for all of your questions.  We will be with you and guide you through every step along the way.

      Usually, the first time we speak with you will be by phone to obtain the legally necessary information.  We will then set up an appointment with you to gather other needed information.  At that time you and your family will be able to express your wishes and the type of services you prefer.

 Traditional ServicesChapel
       At Daniel Funeral Home we offer traditional services for all faiths.  Our services can either be performed in our spacious chapel, or at a location of your choice.  Our caring staff honors the want and needs of your family.  Funeral services include counseling, preparing vital record statistics, securing permits, filing and obtaining death certificates, and assistance with life insurance claims, veterans administration and social security.

Optional Services
       Our staff will be able to assist you in choosing the many optional services that may be required to carry out your family’s wishes.  These may include embalming, funeral ceremonies, visitations, viewings, or graveside services.  We can also provide access to hearses, flower vans, a funeral limousine, and other transportation of the remains.   

Personal Service
      We never forget that completing all the arrangements of a funeral service is a task most families face only a few times.  Our intention is to help make every service personal and simple.  There are many different ways to personalize the service.  Here are some ways we can help:

     Some people prefer to use their own music and others choose pianists, organist, or other personally memorable instruments.  We can assist you in finding a local musician to suit your preferences.

      Nothing reflects the life of a loved one more than a memory table.  Covered with family photographs, plaques, trophies, quilts, flowers, artwork and other momentos, a memory table or memory board can be set up at the visitation and/or service.

      We hope you will feel comfortable asking us for other ways to make the service extra special.  There is no right or wrong way to use mementoes in a funeral service.  Each is individual and personal.
