A Message to Our Families Regarding COVID-19:


Heath Funeral Chapel is dedicated to serving the needs of Lakeland area families every day. And today is no different. We are doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our community and our dedicated staff during this unprecedented time.


The Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has changed all of our lives and jobs, our daily routines, and our ability to interact with others in person. Unfortunately, it also has changed our ability to hold traditional funeral or memorial services to honor loved ones.


Please accept our deepest sympathy if your family has experienced a loss. We will continue to assist you in every possible way during this time.


As we have been designated as an essential business, we have made necessary modifications to protect both you, the families we serve, and our on-site staff. In the interest of public safety, we have closed our buildings to visitors and temporarily moved our on-site office to an outdoor location.


We are presently consulting with families by phone or, if necessary, in the covered breezeway area located between the back entrance of the main building and the side entrance of our Tribute Center. If arrangements must be made in person, we request that only one or two family members attend this meeting. If anyone in the family is ill, we will coordinate all arrangements via phone and email.


Our on premise crematories will continue to operate, and inurnments may still be scheduled.


At this time, only graveside services attended by fewer than 10 people are being permitted, and anyone attending must maintain social distance. However, families may still choose to have a memorial service or celebration of life service at a future date.


As we look ahead, we will continue to do everything possible to meet the needs of your family and our community. It is our sincere hope that everyone stays healthy and safe, and that daily routines resume soon. We will all work through this together.


Thank you for understanding.

Bill, Caroline and Matt Schichtel
